Chipotle is all about Mexican food. Quesadillas, tacos, salads, lifestyle Bowls, and more from the Chipotle menu.

Chipotle is located in Toms River, Brick, Manahawkin, and now Forked River, once the building is done being built. The new Chipotle is in the Home Depot shopping plaza on Rt. 9 in Forked River.

From Chipotle Mexican Grill's website: Chipotle uses real food with wholesome ingredients without added colors, flavors, or other additives. Chipotle is committed to making its food more accessible to everyone while continuing to be a brand with a demonstrated purpose as it leads the way in digital, technology, and sustainable business practices. Steve Ells, founder, and executive chairman, first opened Chipotle starting with a single restaurant in Denver, Colorado in 1993.

Recently I wrote an article about how Lacey is getting more and more restaurants and it's great to see. I think Chipotle will do awesome in Forked River. Although, Taco Bell is across the parking lot.

I usually get a delicious quesadilla with cheese and chicken. Usually, it's so big and so yummy. And stuffed to perfection.

I didn't realize Chipotle was so popular until I starting talking to my friends about it, they're excited about it. When I would ask you what you really wanted to see in Lacey, Chipotle and Cracker Barrel were the most asked for restaurants. Starbucks was also asked for and you're getting that, too.

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
