What We Ordered:
- Chipotle Chicken Wrap: 8/10 overall, I liked how the wrap was prepared in front of you so you could decided what you wanted to have added to the wrap however I thought that the chicken was pretty dry. It was very good other than that.
Service: The service at each of the counters is very fast and helpful. They handle lines with ease and are about to keep people moving through the ordering process. Having two separate counters helps with crowd control. The workers were very friendly.
