Chipotle Mexican Grill Gourmet Burritos and Tacos in historic Hagerstown Maryland

Chipotle in historic Hagerstown Maryland

 

Chipotle is one of our family’s all time favorite recipes from our California years, so we had to run through and get dinner TWICE on our Massachusetts trip! Chipotle serves fast, healthy, freshly made on the spot Mexican food. Choose from chicken, steak, barbacoa (heavenly!) and carnitas, which are going progressively more hormone free, free range, no antibiotic, delicious meats, from humanely treated animals! Go Chipotle – you get our GREEN AWARD! Yes - you will find Chipotle nationwide - so look for this one of a kind treat wherever you go!

Lisa got the hard shell tacos with tender, tasty barbacoa (shredded roast beef delicately spiced and so delicious), medium hot corn salsa, jack cheese and lots and lots of shredded lettuce (I try for two servings of lettuce!) Seasoned to perfection – rated a high 10! Our second trip on the way home, it only rated a 3 (the corn salsa can be inconsistent in flavor)

Emily got a burrito with Chipotle’s famous cilantro rice, spicy chicken, mild tomato salsa, sour cream, cheese and lettuce. Yummy! Rated a 100! Second rated 100!

Dave gets chicken bowl with cilantro rice, chicken, medium corn salsa, cheese, lettuce, guacamole (extra) and topped with hot red tomatillo salsa! Rated a high 10 the first time, and a 9 the 2nd time!

When food is freshly made like they do at Chipotle, there can be flavor variations. It isn’t all out of the same can, and tastes the same every day – because it is mass produced and carted across America on trucks. It is fresh and seasoned on the spot. This can produce slightly different results and is part of the fun. Some days the corn salsa can be super spicy, the next time so sweet with summer fresh corn that they probably need to double the jalapenos to bring the flavor up! So it is like home cookin, different, rarely exactly the same.

A bag of fresh lime infused tortilla chips, with Kosher salt and guacamole and more mild tomato salsa finishes off the meal!

Chipotle in Hagertown needs to kick up the fun quota a little more – in the two visits we had on the Mass trip, they were just a little dead. Part of what makes Chipotle so fun back home, was the sparkling fun personalities of the employees – they just make it a fun, funky restaurant!

Still a family favorite – we HIGHLY recommend finding your nearest Chipotle and running in for some awesome Mexican food! (You will see Living History Sites constantly reviewing Chipotle in every city we find one in! Currently we have to drive 3 hours for a fix, so you better believe we will visit them on every trip we take when we are near one!) Next – Chipotle in Atlanta in July 2008!

The Hagerstown Chipotle is less than an hour from Gettysburg, and about the same from Hershey PA.

Incidentally, since Chipotle is one of our favorite restaurants and so far away, I have learned to recreate their food at home. For those recipes and many more, please visit my website at www.ThePrudentWife.com
