Chipotle vs. Oscars — who wraps the burrito better?
Mexican food. It’s something our generation especially loves. For CB students, it seems to come down to two places: Chipotle and Oscars. But which restaurant is better? If you’re like most people and can’t decide, hopefully the Talon can help you out. Let the fight begin.
In this corner, weighing in at two locations (Land Park & West Sacramento), we have Oscar’s Very Mexican Food. Camille Moniz (’16) has warm thoughts when thinking about her favorite restaurant.
“It’s the best place in Land Park,” she says “They have the California Burrito with french fries.”
A burrito with French fries. Wow, just wow. It sounds absolutely delicious, but it also sounds like I’m going to gain 53.8 pounds.
And in this corner, weighing in at 1,539 locations nationwide, we have Chipotle, who Samantha Hermann (’15) is definitely rooting for.
“I like Chipotle because they have a lot of taste and flavor. The burritos are SO SO good.”
ROUND ONE: location, location, location. Oscars tossed Chipotle on the ground with one move!
John Jedrzynski (’16) is a big fan of Oscars and is always cheering them on.
“Oscars is independent, and it seems like the independents are always a little bit nicer than the chains. ”
Ouch Chipotle, that’s gotta hurt. Marcela Cuomo (’15) disagreed, loving the convenience of Chipotle.
“Chipotles are everywhere, they are easy to find. But sometimes I feel surrounded, like there are too many.”
Clearly, Oscar’s has taken the first round.
ROUND TWO: Flavor.
Chipotle has picked up its game. It fakes a move to the left, then goes the the right with a body slam, bringing the opponent to the floor.
Hannah Schanberger (’15) loves the taste of Chipotle’s burritos.
“You get to create your own order exactly how you like it with all your favorite things inside,” she says.
Although Chipotle allows customization, Patrick Bell (’15) favors the taste of Oscar’s.
“They offer a wider selection of burritos. I can try something new every time.”
This round seems to be a tie. Each restaurant has an upside and a downside.
Chipotle and Oscar’s have had a rough battle so far, but it’s the final round and a winner must be declared.
ROUND 3: Cost.
Elizabeth Rivera (’15) is wise about how she spends her cash.
“The burritos at Chipotle have more inside, so you get more for your money.”
Maria Matista (’15) feels otherwise.
“I think Oscar’s is more expensive, and the flavor is not as good as Chipotle,” the junior says.
Chipotle took the cake with this round.
It looks like we have a tie ladies and gentlemen. It’s important to remember that it doesn’t matter what is on the outside, it’s the inside of the burrito that counts.
