Louisville, Ky. (March 12, 2013) — Chipotle Mexican Grill opened its first Louisville location on Wednesday, March 13. The critically acclaimed burrito shop will serve its gourmet menu of burritos, tacos, salads and bowls downtown at 315 S. 4th St.
Distinguished by fresh, premium-quality food from sustainable sources, an iconic look and speedy service, Chipotle offers a new perspective on food.
“We are changing the way the world thinks about and eats fast food,” said Steve Ells, Chipotle founder, chairman and co-CEO. “There was a time when only the most demanding chefs in the best restaurants were using the same quality of food we are using, but we’re committed to making better food affordable and accessible so everyone can eat better.”
All of the fresh food is prepared in open kitchens in plain view of customers. Customers can choose from a variety of delicious ingredients to customize their order – cilantro-lime rice, whole black or pinto beans, grilled marinated meats or braised and shredded meats, freshly sautéed fajita vegetables, house-made guacamole, aged shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream and a choice of fresh salsas.
Hours at the restaurant are from 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. daily. The phone number for the new Louisville location is 502-584-8606.
