By forgoing the tortilla and choosing to do a burrito bowl instead, you get double the filling for the same price. If you are craving a real burrito, just ask for the tortilla on the side. You should get enough to fix a burrito for yourself and still have some filling leftover.
It may sound pretty messed up, but Chipotle employees have a tendency to give smaller scoops if they know you are asking for a double helping. Let them put the first scoop, then request the second, so there’s no way they can change the scoop size on you.
When choosing between black or pinto, choose both. There’s no “half and half” scoop measurement, so you are likely to receive double the beans without paying for the extra scoop.
The same trick works for meat. Unfortunately, you will be charged for whichever meat option is more expensive, but you will still get double the serving.
When you’re going for that loaded burrito flavor, often half of it falls out of the cracked tortilla and ends up making a mess. Talk about a waste. Ask for extra tortilla and keep all that goodness in your mouth where it belongs.
This hack is more for your taste buds than your wallet. Ask to have your burrito fillings mixed before they wrap it, so you don’t bite into just a layer of rice or sour cream.
Yes, it’s possible. You can do it the “sneaky way” or the “healthy way.” The sneaky way involves going during peak hours, when the place is a madhouse, in the hopes that they forget. The healthy way is just to order a veggie burrito, bowl, or taco, in which case guacamole is free.
Nothing sucks more than having a strong chipotle craving met with lines longer than Disney. Skip the line and order online, then just walk up to the register to pick up your order.
When pairing up those delicious grilled veggies with protein, they are always free no matter what you put them on. We call that a win.
Munchies have you craving some loaded tacos? Just order a kids nacho and you have yourself DIY nacho kit on the much cheaper side.
Chips cost extra, but a side of hard taco shells are on the house. Just break them apart and wah lah! You have chips!
Yes, there’s a secret menu, and it’s pretty damn delicious. Try the Quesarito (burrito wrapped in a cheese quesadilla) or the Burritodilla (half burrito filling, half cheese) for a flavor-packed option at a reasonable price. You can find a list of current Chipotle Secret Menu items here. Though some are widely known, not all chains may produce these secret menu orders so we suggest a back up in case your order does not go through!
