Chipotle

Lance Cpl. Sean Dennison
Desert Warrior Staff

Author’s note: The opinion written down here is expressly that of Lance Cpl. Sean Dennison and does not reflect the views of The Desert Warrior or the Marine Corps as a whole. In fact, Cpl. Jolene Bopp, a fellow staff writer, of the Desert Warrior and a Marine at that, positively adores Chipotle.

 

I feel Chipotle is unfulfilling.

They try, bless them, they try.

It just feels like the ingredients don’t mesh well.

The building itself, located at the Yuma Palms, the hub of commerce for Yuma, the building comfortable seats dozens of people.

They have a nifty drink selection though, I’ll give them that. The usual soda fare is present, along with fruit drinks and juice.

The staff is professional and polite. I did not experience any difficulty in placing my order. None whatsoever.

The food is where I draw my biggest gripe.

Like I said, I feel, and this is my opinion, the food doesn’t taste that good.

The proportions are large, granted, but I would not sacrifice quality for quantity.

I suppose Chipotle is worth trying once, just to keep your options open. I personally feel no need to ever come back here again.
