20 minutes in line, doesn't move. Watching them work is like watching ice form. For the time spent waiting, you could go to a real Mexican restaurant and eat real Mexican food. I used to enjoy them, but I think this was my last visit.

I used to dine frequently at Chipotle. This year I've only been a couple times. The line this time was very short- a big plus. My chicken bowl was very good. Everything tasted fresh and savory. I like their salsas and guacamole. Their burrito prices are very inexpensive. It didn't appear the prices have been raised this year. The interior... More

This chain is recovering from some bacterial problems. Has good food, decent service, but too loud for my sensitive ears. If you like the sense of "a happening place" which comes with a lot of hubbub, this is the place for you.

This place never fails me! I love the freshness of the food. I have learned when to go to avoid the long lines. Which is a very small window.

When in the mood for quick Mexican food, Chipotle has often been a choice because of it's touted commitment to sustainability and hormone-free meat. However, this "healthy choice" has become just another run-of-the-mill fast-food chain in Castro Valley. First of all, there is always a line 15-30 people deep which means it takes forever to get your order in. Secondly,... More

If you are nearby, want a big burrito, and don't mind a wait, then this Chipotle should be OK for you. There are other burrito shops nearby that I feel are a better value, with faster service, but this Chipotle has a reasonably nice ambiance (although often crowded/loud) and the food is tasty. The service was not great though; the... More

Crowded, long line and the expectation that you will automatically know there litany of questions...have a question? The response is one of don't slow me down lady...we got a line going here. Could not hear my companion...bad accoustics. Nothing special. Make better at home for a lot less money.
