They have now opened their doors in the Mercato Shopping Center on Tamiami Trail just north of Vanderbilt Beach Road in Naples.

They are open seven days a week from 11 am to 10 pm and you will find the prices are very reasonable.

People from all over who have enjoyed the Chipotle Grill elsewhere in the good ol’ USA are standing in line for the wonderful food that is now offered to us in Naples.

And believe me, it is worth the wait.

The menu is not extensive, however, you can order a tortilla-wrapped burrito, a burrito bowl, a salad, or a taco (crispy or soft), all made to order with chicken, steak, barbacoa (shredded beef), carnitas (shredded pork), or vegetarian. Four freshly made salsas are available from mild to hot.

And, they are delicious with the chips, or as accompaniment to your main course. We especially liked the chips and guacamole sauce.

The philosophy of Chipotle, “Food with Integrity”, is that fast food may be wholesome and healthy.

They pride themselves in using ingredients acquired from local and family farmers who raise organic vegetables and meats free of antibiotics and hormones.

“Food with Integrity” means they use the very best, most healthy ingredients available and will continue to do so.

To the delight of parents and children alike, this Naples restaurant has a 4-item menu suited just for kids.

Each menu item includes chips and organic milk or juice. A quesadilla is also offered for the kids.

The atmosphere is extremely relaxed and you may take-out, dine in or dine outside.

Moving along a line with all the ingredients in front of you, you may select the items of your choice to complete your perfect burrito, taco, or salad.

Take a good appetite and be ready to savor a wonderful meal!
