    Chipotle

    To Ames. Something a little more official but confirms what I had heard several months ago.

    Re: Chipotle

    Ya not surprised on the new locations. Both spots are prime for business. Better build up the old sprint store land quite a bit.

    Qdoba out, Chipotle in.

    While I love Panchero's, the Ames location is subpar, so hopefully Chipotle gives some competition.

    Hopefully Chipotle is as good as Qdoba and much better than Pancheros. Never had it though.

    Re: Chipotle

    I love Chipotle but is there a market for that many burrito places, part of the reason Qdoba didn't go, theres not a market for it. Mr. burrito won't last now.

    Re: Chipotle

    Panchero's will take the biggest hit from this, based on location alone. Mr. Burrito could really help themselves by going late night. Fighting Burrito is bulletproof based on their being open late and location in Campustown. There's room for 3 burrito joints in Ames. There isn't room for 2 of them on Duff.

    For the record, Chipotle >>>>>>> Panchero's.

    Agreed. While I think Ames has the burrito market painted in to a corner, I do have to applaud the business owners and new-found "welcoming" demeanor to business that Ames has shown lately.

    Better than poncheys and Qdoba. Not as good as bandit burrito, not even close.

    Re: Chipotle

    There was also discussion in the past about a steakhouse coming to ames on duff, but i didn't see anything discussed in this article. Was that just a rumor?

    For the record, you are wrong. Panchero's pressed tortillas trump all and that is a fact. Sure Chipotle warms up their tortillas, but that is nothing, NOTHING, like a nice, warm, chewy, pressed tortilla.
