Chipotle question

Post by dm200 » Wed Aug 29, 2018 2:47 pm

Another Chipotle post prompts this question.

I always get the "bowl" - but the price of the three choices are the same. Eyeballing it, seems like you get more food in the bowl than the burrito, for example. Has anyone measured and compared the choices?

I think the only thing you get more of in the bowl is rice. On a cost-per-calorie basis I'm pretty sure you get more with the burrito because the tortilla is packed with calories.

With that said, I almost always get the bowl as well.

If you get the bowl, I assume you pay extra for the tortilla?

One thing I learned is that if I get the veggie bowl, there is no extra charge for guacamole :)

For many of us there is no problem getting an adequate portion size at Chipotle. Indeed, one complaint is that the portions are TOO large for healthy eating.

Not having a weight problem this is not a particular concern of mine...

Maybe it depends what part of the country you are in but our bowls are made from a compostable fiber.
The burritos, on the other hand, are wrapped in aluminum foil.

The ultimate way to work the system at Chipotle is to order a bowl instead of a burrito or tacos. You may be grumbling about not having a tortilla, but here is where the genius comes in. When you order a bowl, you generally get more of everything since they aren't trying to smash it all into a tortilla. The tortilla and taco shells provide limited space to work with. So, order the bowl to get larger portions, ask for all the extras, and finally, ask for a tortilla or taco shell on the side (yes, it's completely free). Build your own perfect burrito or taco, and revel in gaming the system so well.

I always get a bowl per my son's suggestion. I always ask for extra "whatever" where "whatever" is whatever I feel like having extra of. I always split my bowl into 3 meals, too.

What meat do you get? I used to get the chicken but lately it has been too gristly. Not sure why. Sometimes I don't think they cook it enough also. I recently swithed to steak or Barbacoa beef.

No, they do not give you less of other things if ordering a tortilla bowl.

My wife and I order the same bowls when we go, except I ask for a tortilla, and I've never seen a difference in the amounts given.

I don't eat often at Chipotle, but if I do, it's usually a bowl, because it makes it easier for me to eat half of it and save the rest for the next day.

I have no idea if the bowl is more or less food than a burrito. Based on my experience both are more than I want in one meal.

The Chipotles I have been to use some sort of compostable fiber for the bottom part and then put an aluminum foil lid on top of it (see my comment above about taking half home for the next day).

In general I prefer Qdoba over Chipotle. Chipotle cooks the onions and peppers too much, I like a little crunch. I also like my Ecoli on the side as opposed to directly in the burrito.

He didn't say tortilla bowl he said burrito. I haven't personally weighed out the items but I'm 90% sure from personal experience (and then there is the article I quoted below) that you get more rice, lettuce, etc. in a bowl versus a burrito. Maybe the same scoop of "protein" but other items are more.

:shock:

Even if you get guac and sour cream, a chicken bowl is only ~1,000 calories. How can you stretch that to 3 meals?

The way I eat it it's about 700 calories, which is perfect for one meal for me.

Pro tip: read the subject and decide if the thread is unappetizing ;)

As for their food, I actually like the Sofritas. So I usually get a Sofritas bowl. Bonus: it doesn't come with chicken bones :beer

Sorry to detour the thread for a minute but what I find interesting about Bogleheads is that I often find the "answer" to a question I have in one thread lies in some underlying statements in other threads.

There was a thread about how much folks spend on eating/grocery bills in a month and I frankly couldn't understand how folks could live so cheaply.
Now I know the answer - they buy Chipotle and stretch it out for THREE meals!

^RIght. One way to spend less on groceries is to eat out all the time. And eating out can be cheaper than buying groceries.

Also I'm not losing any weight with what I eat. I'm 180 and 66 (height and weight).

I went to Chipotle all the time when they briefly had a really delicious chorizo option. It's not traditional mexican style because it's not greasy but it was still pretty good. All their other meats are bland in comparison. I guess people couldn't handle something different so it was discontinued.

This is my order at qdoba. Maybe you can do something similar at chipotle.

Kids' mini burrito bowl, instead of chips a tortilla on the side. When I sit down I wrap my own 3/4 size burrito for 3-4 less dollars. 8-)

My understanding is they replaced the chorizo with queso. I agree with you the chorizo was great and was disappointed they got rid of it. Especially considering their queso is terrible.

You can get a bowl and ask for the tortilla for no extra charge. There is a post online somewhere about how to maximize your Chipotle order, ie getting a bowl but tortilla on the side is more food than just a tortilla, and extra rice is free.

I used to really enjoy the burritos but stopped going there in 2006 or so when my work locale changed. I used to go to lunch there.
Then, when they had the terrible problems, years later........I never wanted to return, even though there's one near my gym.
No matter how thrifty.....not appealing/ not worth it.

I get two tacos - not 3. I think it ends up being 2/3 of the normal price. A full portion of anything at Chipotle is too much for me.

I didn't know about the free quac with veggie until recently. I guess I was messing it up by ordering 1 sofritas and 1 veggie taco.

Is "maximizing your Chipotle order" really a thing? Or just something to laugh about?
Do people here really place a lot of value on "extra rice"?

My late mother in law used to put sugar packets, salt and pepper packets, catsup packets, rolls, and butter into her purse - then ask for more rolls!
Of course, she only ever went to restaurants when others paid, so there's that...

Could be this. It's becoming much more common. We've definitely noticed it in chicken we've purchased at the grocery.

If you're hungry, getting the bowl is the best strategy. With a burrito or 3 tacos, there is a finite amount of ingredients that the tortillas can hold before they break. With the bowl you're really limited by the server.

Some common strategies is to ask for both types of rice, both types of beans, etc… also if they hand off your bowl to the next server (assembly style) they're not really keeping track too much of what's in your bowl… as long as you don't order guac… they just charge you the standard price. It's pretty easy to get two pounds or more of quality ingredients for $7 if you want to.

This link below, where they got some famous chefs to share their Chipotle hacks, got me turned on to the strategy and also the wide variety of things you can order there.

The bowl is a much better deal from a quantity/cost standpoint. Since you can also ask for a tortilla for free you can make a burrito and have left overs to take home for later. So make sure you add the tortilla and everything else you are entitled to. Really load it up and ask for all the available options. My wife likes them so once or twice a year or so we go when we're back visiting in the states. We split it.

I go there when I travel but unfortunately the one in my town is stingy and food is cold. I seem to notice the bowl is more food although sometimes I'm in the mood for a burrito.

Well........I always order the kids tacos. I get a lot of food, more than enough for two tacos, for less than $5.00. Two tortillas OR two crisp taco shells, plus three choices. I choose the pork, black beans and cheese. You also get chips( if you want), juice and a little mandarin orange. And they don't even bat an eye when I order it. no smirks, either. :happy

Personally, I think the bargain is to get NO RICE. Then it looks puny and they pile on the rest!
