New Chipotle opening today in Clarendon

Burrito buffs will finally be able to get their Chipotle fix in Clarendon.

The granddaddy of all fast-casual, assembly-line style eateries is opening its latest Arlington location today at 10:45 a.m., and offering the first 50 people in line “complimentary Chipotle Goods merchandise.”

It’s the county’s sixth Chipotle and the first that we’re aware of with a walk-up ordering window — though it was not immediately clear this morning where that window is located.

“Chipotle Mexican Grill is opening a new Clarendon Blvd restaurant on Thursday, April 28 with a walk up window,” a PR rep said. “This location will be the brand’s 6th location in Arlington, joining existing sites in Ballston, Crystal City, Columbia Pike, Pentagon City, and at the Lee Heights Shops.”

After years of hope and rumors, Chipotle’s impending arrival in the former Pete’s New Haven Apizza space at 3017 Clarendon Blvd was revealed by ARLnow in February. Now less than three months later — an impossibly speedy permitting and construction process by Arlington standards — it’s opening its doors.

The new Chipotle will be open daily from 10:45 a.m. to 10 p.m. The store is currently hiring, the PR rep noted.
