Chipotle: 4.6 gavels! (winner of this term)
Overall: 4.6 (Brian: 4.5, April: 5, Eva: 3, Rayza: 4.5, Leah: 5, Josh: 5, Dan F.: 4.5, Peter: 5, Danielle: 4.5, Joe: 4.5)

Proximity: 2 blocks from the circle, 5 minute walk.
Menu: Good variety and very vegetarian-friendly. Small but satisfactory selection of items (three flavors of meat + a veggie option for tacos or burritos).
Price/Value: $7 – a bit more expensive than other places, but a good amount of food.
Service: Efficient assembly line style service – good but very impersonal.
Pros: The cilantro lime rice was considered a “pro” by a vote of 8-3, and the salty limey chips were considered a pro by a vote of 7-2, availability of “garden blend” fake meat, use of local ingredients, good salad dressing, wide array of drinks from fountain machine, availability of nutrition info atwww.chipotlefan.com.
Cons: Guacamole is okay but not great, absence of a salsa bar, politically incorrect firing of Latino workers at Columbia Heights location.
