When You Want Chipotle But You Also Want Local… Go HERE!
Sometimes I'll crave Chipotle, but like, NOT Chipotle, ya know? Of course I'm always going to try and opt for a local option if it's available. Thankfully there are several alternatives in the Treasure Valley. The next time you're craving some quick, made-to-order Mexican grill grub, try one of these smaller chains that are either locally or regionally owned.
Parilla Grill - Come to Parilla Grill in Boise's North End for the vibes and atmosphere if nothing else. Para Grill has a food counter that's similar to Chipotle. In comparison, their menu is far more extensive and even includes margaritas!
KB Burritos (Ketchum Burritos) - There are five KB Burritos in Idaho including one in Eagle. The best part is of course that all their burritos, tacos, quesadillas and salads are fresh and made-to-order. KB Burritos is most popularly known for their fish tacos!
Taqueria La Flama - This food does not disappoint! Out of 189 reviews on Yelp! La Flama scores a 4.5 rating. You order your food at the counter and the food is prepared in the kitchen. It's restaurant quality Mexican food but you can get it super fast and to-go.
Bandidos - Bandidos in Nampa has been described as tasting fresher than other "build your burrito bars." They also offer more options like Gyros, enchiladas, quesadillas and nachos. I love Chipotle for how big their burritos are but Bandidos certainly gives Chipotle a run for its money - in this and every other category.
Now you'll never have to settle for generic again!
