    Except Pancheros of course. Chipotle is so manufactured and doesn't even have queso. Its made by McDonalds for god's sake. I'll still be at Pancheros destroying their delicious burritos.

    I dont believe mcdonalds is associated with chipotle at all anymore i dont think. They just invested in them for a period of time.

    I do wish Panchero's was still in campustown. So many things have left there.

    I like Panchero's better mainly because it is an Iowa thing (at least for me, maybe they have spread a lot). Chipotle and Qdoba can be found anywhere in the country. Qdoba has better selection in my opinion.

    Re: Chipotle FINALLY coming to Ames!

    Everyone that says they prefer Pancheros over Chipotle is a loser....

    I've had both and nothing will ever beat Chipotle IMO.... I hope the new one opens in June so I don't spend all my money there.

    Re: Chipotle FINALLY coming to Ames!

    If you support Iowa agriculture you shouldn't eat at Chipotle. Chipotle is a restaurant that uses words such as "natural" and "healthy" to describe their ingredients. These words are not true. The ingredients used at Chipotle are produced in niche markets by unsustainable agriculture methods. Their "free range" ingredients are not any healthier for the consumer. This restaurant does not support modern agriculture, which is the driving force of Iowa's economy! Don't support Chipotle.

    Can you elaborate further on the distinction between unsustainable agriculture and modern agriculture?

    I think you might be disappointed if I choose one or the other......

    Yep, I've heard Petco and Sports Authority are going in between Target and Super Walmart. What exactly is Sports Authority, anything like Scheels?

    Re: Chipotle FINALLY coming to Ames!

    Out here, give me a choice between Chipotle and Qdoba and I take Chipotle every time. Except maybe on Qdoba's Taco-tastic Tuesdays, and even then it's still a maybe. It's been a long time since I've eaten at Panchero's so I don't think I can make a judgement.

    Full disclosure...I'm not a farmer, although I am the grandson of a farmer and the son of a part-time farmer. I have no ties to the agriculture industry other than that. My wife works in the 'natural foods' industry...full bore, non-GMO, no HFCS, all that stuff. I straddle the camps by nature. I tend to think the absolutists on either end of any argument are generally wrong, but can serve to inform those in the middle who can listen with a discerning ear (as in, sort out the male bovine feces). I am also kind of a 'foodie' who knows what a garden grown tomato tastes like, who knows what a good damn steak tastes like that isn't 'enhanced with up to 15% of a flavor enhancer'. I make my own sausage and like that I know what goes in it, but I also use traditional curing agents like nitrates. That's enough...I'm not biased.

    I read an article recently that blew my mind. It talks about GMO in a frank manner from a 'f**king prove it with science' perspective. The guy helped start the non-GMO movement, but prides himself on using actual facts. Once he dug into GMO/non-GMO..the summary is...unless you're willing to be responsible for creating conditions that drive additional people starving, higher chemical application rates and additional destruction of natural habitat for food production, you should be okay with GMO food. Maybe not happy, jump up and down for joy, but okay.

    Here's a link to a transcript from the actual speaker's website:

    Mark Lynas Lecture to Oxford Farming Conference, 3 January 2013

    Video:



    NO MATTER WHAT SIDE YOU'RE ON...take a listen. Again, I'm neutral, I get both sides of it and have straddled the fence for quite a few years.

    Re: Chipotle FINALLY coming to Ames!

    I'm eating Fighting Burrito right now and honestly at first it was a little disappointing. However, I decided to start imagining that it was Chipolte and my mood quickly improved.

    Long story short right now it doesn't matter what kind of burrito I get, but at noon on a weekday I'll be hitting up Chipotle. Mainly because I love America.
