We heard from a couple of friends that WPTV did a report on local Chipotle Mexican Grill restaurants. A neighbor told us the report specifically mentioned the Chipotle in Westwinds of Boca at 441 and Glades Road. We were surprised because we don’t remember seeing any bad inspections in our reports.
Something is definitely going on. We just did a Google search for the article and a “Dirty Dining” article is still in Google’s “index” and shows up on searches:
But the “url” for the site now causes a “404 error” – the article appears to have been removed.
In working on our latest restaurant inspection report, we noticed that the Chipotle near Town Center (north side of Glades Road at Butts) had an excellent inspection with only one minor violation. There are three that serve West Boca – the one on Glades near Town Center; the one in Westwinds at Glades and 441, and one on the south side of Palmetto Park Road near Powerline. All three of them have had consistently good inspection reports going back as far as the state website goes for them.
Unfortunately we can’t see the original WPTV story because it has been taken down. We can’t evaluate the story thoroughly.
But it appears from what we’ve been told by friends that WPTV misled the viewing public about Chipotle, at least in regard to any reference they made to the ones in West Boca. If inspections matter to you, Chipotle is a good place to eat.
Please note that we do not eat at Chipotle. We know others like it but their food is not to our taste. We prefer Lime Fresh in Shadowood and before that opened we went to Tijuana Flats in Mission Bay.
