Why does Chipotle overstuff their burritos?

You can't get your mouth around the thing to eat it. Also, why do they charge extra for quacamole?

by Anonymousreply 7109/28/2013

why do you care? you cant even get your subject verb number in agreement. How do you even know they are overstuffed?

Just go and watch the cute guys sliding them into their mouths with ease and imagine how great they'd be at deep throating you.

The sentence seemed grammatically correct to me.

Chipolte is not a THEY... Chipolte is an it. Chipolte takes the third person singular possessive pronoun. Not the third person PLURAL possessive pronoun, dumb ass. Why does Chipolte overstuff its burritos?

Filled with worthless rice so you feel like you're getting something.

Ok so what would be the *correct* sentence.

MHB, four times 'Chipolte?'

Once is a typo; four times is ignorance.

I agree that they stuff their burritos with way too much rice.

I miss living in SF and having REAL mission style burritos from the taquerias on Mission and Valencia Streets. I lived there before Chipotle came around and it was sheer heaven!

Chipotle never over-stuffs my burritos with too much rice. In fact, since I don't ask for it, they don't even put rice in.

by Anonymousreply 2003/21/2011

OP, guacamole is made of avocadoes, and avocadoes are an expensive ingredient.%0D %0D At the grocery store, a small little avocado which contains only a small amount of ingredient, costs $1.50 each sometimes $2.00 each.

We'll have fresh-baked chocolate cookies after stuffing our burritos.

R16, or order a "boi" if you cannot handle the "bol."

Can't stand the food. Took a relative a couple years back; we were going to split the burrito; but she had it stuffed with just about everything (like a casserole inside a flour tortilla).%0D %0D %0D I just got a quesadilla with chicken and cheese. Toppings were separate. (To be fair, topping for her burrito were separate.)

Who is the moron going on about Freebird's? A local restaurant that no one else knows about. And why does r27 feel the need to post that she doesn't like it. Argh!

by Anonymousreply 2803/22/2011

Burritos are not made to get your mouth around them. You go to any good taqueria and order one and you will find they are too thick for that. They are eaten with a knife and fork like an enchilada, rather than as a finger food taco.

A burrito translates as little donkey. I'm quite sure many of you have had a little donkey up your ass.

Order them without the rice, better, easier to eat and a more reasonable size. Plus, fewer calories.

I shouldn't advertise this but Chipolte, at least in NYC has pretty clean bathrooms if you are in a pinch.

by Anonymousreply 4103/22/2011

I may not always agree with her sexism, but misshelenbedd is correct, as usual, on grammatical points.

The correct sentence should read: Why does Chipotle overstuff ITS burritos?

It is a common mistake for uneducated people or those who speak consistently in the vernacular, such as sports casters, to use the plural pronouns they and their for groups with many members.

The members are plural, the team or group is singular.

I can't believe you have turned a thread about Chipotle into a grammar pissing match.

by Anonymousreply 4303/22/2011

Burritos should be big enough to eat with a fork and knife. If you eat your burritos in your hand, you are thinking of Taco Bell and those aren't real burritos (or real meat) any more than McDonalds is a real hamburger.

by Anonymousreply 4403/22/2011

its not a pissing match, and you trying to label it one shows you are typical BFF as MHB says.

Nobody has refuted her... But you want to try and reframe this as if she has somehow done something wrong, because that is the only way you know how to react to anything she says.

All she has said is what is correct grammar. Nobody has defended OP. Nobody has said their is correct, therefore it isnt in any way shape or form a pissing match.

But that doesnt matter to you, does it.

by Anonymousreply 4503/22/2011

R41, "in a pinch" or "need to pinch one"?

by Anonymousreply 4603/22/2011

Wet burritos are eaten with a fork and knife; dry burritos can be eaten either with fork and knife or in hand, depending on size.

Mission style burritos served dry, i.e., without sauce atop (which is typical) can be eaten by hand. I lived in SF where this style of burrito emerged and people ate them both ways.

Take it down a notch r45. I have no issues with MHB. Unlike most on here, I find her funny. It's the follow up responses that get all pissy for pissy's sake.

I didn't realise MHB is a woman, R45.

dont order me to "take it down," asshole. Your male sexism obviously is uncomfortable with any powerful woman and you perceive any woman who speaks at equal volume with a male to be "over the top."

I will say what I want when I want how I want. I have just as much right to be here as you, and you have NO RIGHT to impose your hegemony and domineering ways on my. I am free R48, regardless of your internalized femophobia.

Street burritos in Mexico are just slightly larger than a taco and eaten with no knife or fork. Typically wrapped in paper like a gyros you munch as you walk.

I went on the Chipotle web page to look at the calorie chart.

All of the key ingredients are listed singularly.

Add them all up to find out the total amount of calories. It does seem that the menu now lists the total amount by each dish.

I think The Exodus stuff is garbage and useless, and possibly even damaging but, having said that, how does it not fall under freedom of speech? We all applauded the evil Phelps group for winning their SCOTUS battle. How is this different? Not trying to be snarky. This is a legitimate question.

R42, in Britain, Ireland, Australia and most other English speaking countries, sports teams are considered as collective nouns. If you watch the BBC, you will hear 'Manchester United are winning...' and you will also hear 'McDonald's has introduced a new burger...'

Of course, OP was inconsistent - he should have said 'Why DO Chipotle overstuff their burritos?' but I'm sick of Americans acting like they invented the English language.

Not everyone lives in an area with good, authentic Mexican restaurants. The Northeast doesn't have many good Mexican restaurants so Qdoba or Chipotle do when you get a craving for "Mexican" food. I once had a burrito at a local Mexican place and it was absolutely disgusting. I had to throw it out.
