“Chipotle” What is that smell? Look at that ceiling. Ever wonder how a restaurant got started? Ever wonder how much they actually care about the customers? Is that you just want to know about the restaurant before you step into the door? Like, what does the restaurant look like, where can I sit, and are the workers friendly or mean?

Rio Salado Parkway in Arizona, I started to walk up to the restaurant which was placed in the middle of two other restaurants, and I noticed that many other people were going to Chipotle at that same time. As I looked around outside the building, there was a large sign saying Chipotle, and I decided to enter. The doors I walked through were on the very rightmost side of the building.

First, the smiley man put my burrito in a machine that heated up the outer tortilla that he would soon be putting the ingredients of my choice inside. When the tortilla was warmed up, he proceeded to ask me, “What kind of beans would you like?” The beans they offer are Black and Pinto beans.
