Go there: Chipotle.

Memphis is moving up in the world. We got a Chipotle, which is basically a Moe's on crack. Jake and I finally got around to checking it out last week (we don't venture out of Midtown/Downtown very much...) when we hit up Target. I had heard rumour of the amazingness but had not actually experienced it ever. 

Well. Chipotle. Is. Life. Changing. Their rice - I die. They have a cilantro lime rice that you can put in your meal that I could just eat by itself. In fact, I think I'm going to ask for a to-go order of it to nom on at home. Moving on...

Jake got the burrito but Eat This, Not That told me to get a burrito bowl to save on the calories. Well, I'm glad I did - I loved the rice so much that I am glad I didn't have the distraction of the tortilla. I was stuffed and could have easily saved half for lunch (and probably should have...). 
If you're in the Memphis area, I recommend checking it out for lunch one day. I'm already planning my return trip.

One of my favorite places in Knoxville - I used to go a lot, but did notice it is not as healthy for you... my jeans were more snug. So... I just need to skip the cheese, but I can't part with the rice in the bowl, too good!

Oh yeah not necessarily healthy - for one thing because you can get like 3 lunches out of one of their portion sizes. And they lop on the sour cream like crazy. I think if I was making this a regular thing, I'd save half for leftovers, nix the sour cream, ask them to go light on the cheese, and definitely get the bowl versus the burrito. I was STUFFED after this.

This was nearly a deal breaker when we moved to Chipotle. This is my favorite chain restaurant, by far!
We usually split a burrito. Eating one of those is sure to puff you up like a balloon based on the sodium alone!
Glad you finally went, it is might de-lish! You must also try their chips and's also on my notable list!

I've been wanting to go there! Time for a lunch date after school lets out/before you head to the mountain? :)
