Chipotle-Thumb

There's an intense burrito-folding, salsa-serving war being waged out there between Chipotle, Moe's, Qdoba, and other purveyors of delicious tacos. Passions burn hotter than fresh chilies, and I'm not bold enough to throw my weight behind any of the involved establishments. But I will stick my neck out just enough to share that Chipotle's Mobile Ordering app is now open to all locations, and it's awesome.

No, Chipotle doesn't deliver, but the company's app still saves you the effort of standing in line, shouting your order over the sound of hungry children, and asking the server what that goopy red stuff is next to other, slightly darker, goopy red stuff. You select your entrée, pick the ingredients, choose a side, pay, and arrange a pickup time. It's versatile enough to let you split meals, order extras, and save your order for quick re-ordering later. If you're trying to make a Chipotle run during your lunch break, this gives you the time away from the office without the hassle of wondering if you will actually get to order your food quickly enough.

Previously the app was available in only a select number of cities, and users elsewhere were restricted to using the location finder and menu features. Now it's open to all. Order up!

      After I found out I could order ahead, I've never wasted time in a line again. Did it from my comp previously, but now I can do it from anywhere. There goes my figure.

      • Tim242

        Do it vegan, and you'll be fine.

    Hey Guys... slightly off topic, but where's part 2 of the ART article?? I'm been fiending for more. =/

      Don't ask for ETAs ;-]

      • ddpacino

        Ha! My bad. Understood lol

  • kenjab

    This is a great time saver because my local Chipotle is not exactly the quickest. Plus I order the same thing 99% of the time, so with the saved orders I can place the order in less than a minute. Looks like I'll have to shop for bigger pants....

    There goes that 10lbs I lost.

  • darkNiGHTS

    Why every chain doesn't do this is beyond me. Saves customers time, makes lines smaller, win win win!

  • btod

    I'll need to buy a pair of Chipotlaway. No more blood stains on this guy's underwear!

  • ProductFRED

    FINALLY! Now I can piss off the people waiting on line while on the go! Seriously, online ordering is great. I work in midtown Manhattan and the lines get unbelievably big. But because most people don't know about or bother with online ordering, they think I'm skipping the line sometimes. The reactions are hilarious.

  • mechaphil

    Out of curiosity, I went looking for a Moe's app after reading this post. Yep. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.splickit.moes

    • Tim242

      Any app that has Froyo or Eclair screenshots is a no go.

  • david coffey

    Bertel is still using a phone with jelly bean. Haha Omg what a loser Lol.

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      Inorite? But seriously, he's got an N5 too.

      • david coffey

        Oh I'm sure. Black AND white. 16 and 32 versions. Balls deep.

  • Aaron Jaeger

    Do you pay ahead of time through the app or at the register? *Ahem* Implement Google Wallet *Ahem*

  • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

    This app is freaking amazing. The design and UX is impeccable, they did everything right. Forget the 3-star average rating - it was all from people who couldn't use it in their area.

  • xnifex

    Can you order a quesorrito?

  • flosserelli

    Chipotle is overrated.

    • dreadnatty08

      Your mom's overrated.

    Chipotle will make you fat. watch the carbs people. 70 percent of the calories in the typical American diet are derived from just four food groups: refined sugars, cereal grains, vegetable oils, and dairy products. Bread, doughnuts, cookies, cake, pizza, ice cream, and potato chips may all be different types of food, but they're all made from the same basic -- unhealthy ingredients.

    • Tim242

      The only healthy way to eat is Vegan. Meat and dairy are awful.

      • John Smith

        nope. our ancestors ate meat. that's why humans brains grew and we dominated the planet. look at Gorillas - they don't eat meat and they have a small brain. we were born to eat meat and we've been doing it for millions of years and our bodies have evolved by eating meat. dairy? i agree dairy is bad we din't evolve on dairy or modern agriculture. we evolved on what we could hunt and kill and forage - PALEO DIET!

        • Tim242

          I'm not sure how you link eating meat to brain size. If we were true meat eaters, we would eat it instinctively like other true meat eaters...raw. Meat eating animals have short digestive tracts to push rotting, raw meat through fast. Humans have long digestive tracts that does the opposite. That's why raw meat makes us sick...we cant push the bacteria out fast enough.

          • John Smith

            we can eat raw meat. sushi, tuna tartare, steak tartare, raw beef. if the meat is bad or tainted of course we can't. humans have been eating meat for millions of years - our bodies evolved eating meat. meat is brain food. look at vegans - most of them are sickly looking and unhealthy and weak.

          • Tim242

            Are real meat eaters choosy on which meat they will eat? They don't eat steaks. They eat it all. Vegans look sick and unhealthy? That's funny. We look very healthy. The meat eaters are fat and sick. Why do you think it is that doctors cut meat when trying to fix high cholestorol and heart disease? Younever hear them say, "cut down on your veggies." . You are the typical ignorant American.

          • John Smith

            There are three types of guys I don't trust - guys that don't drink, guys that don’t eat meat, and guys that say that they don’t watch porn. end of discussion. goodbye and good luck.

          • Tim242

            Haha you were all too willing to argue, until you got hit with facts you can't refute. Meat is not healthy. End of discussion, and good luck being fat : )

          • John Smith

            there are three kinds of guys i don't trust - 1. guys that don't drink, 2. guys that say they don't watch porn, and 3. guys that don't eat meat.

          • Tim242

            I don't trust fat people.

  • xlax

    I feel like using this app during lunch time in manhattan just to look at peoples faces on the ridicilously long line as I pass them to pick up my order..
