Chipotle Mexican Grill Opens Second Fort Lauderdale Restaurant Today

Chipotle Mexican Grill, the fast casual restaurant serving sustainably raised food, is opening its second Fort Lauderdale location today, at 4850 N. Federal Highway. This is the 29th South Florida location for the fast-growing chain.

Starting at 11 a.m., diners can enjoy one of Chipotle's oversized burritos, bowls, or salads. Each item is custom-made with a choice of proteins, including chicken, beef, pork, or vegetarian. Prices start at $6.25.

The fast-casual restaurant has made getting burritos easy with both online and iPhone

systems that allow you to order and pay for your lunch or dinner in advance (alas,

you still have to pick up your burrito in person). The new location is

open daily from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
