LOVE IT!!!! but....
I love love chipotle and the work and freshness they put into their food! I am a huge fan of the Honey Vinaigrette dressing they have for their salads, so much that it’s a must have for everything I get there - burritos, pour it on, tacos, pour it on, burrito bowl, LOAD IT ON, I get it every single time. It is quite frustrating though how I am only given the option to include the dressing ONLY if I order the salad on the app. When I’m ordering off the app for delivery, I have no way to choose the salad dressing on the side if i’m ordering something other than the salad. It’s not included in the sides tab and there is no ‘special instructions’ area for me to mention it in. This leaves me to call the Chipotle location I order from and ask them to include it in my order, which I have no problem doing.. until I get my order and they forgot the dressing a majority of the time. Again, I love the dressing, as much as some people LOVE guacamole in their orders, so when I don’t get the dressing it’s quite disappointing eating my meal without the yummy flavor that makes it so much more! If in the next update there was somewhere to include this, I would order from you guys everyday of my life... as if I don’t already!!!
This app would not let me move on until I selected one of 3 ways for The App (not me) to select which location I want IT to chose. None of the 3 are how I want to place an order. I would prefer to manually select a store each time because if I’m picking up I am out for work and may want to pick up either close to a location I will be, close to my office or home. None of the 3 options will let me do this. AND mark my words I guarantee I will place an order, glance over it and miss something because I’m in a hurry and the order will be sent to a store I did not intend (because I have done this before on similar apps). I know that’s ultimately my fault but it wouldn’t happen if I could manually select the store location I want. Also the app should tell us if the location is out of something or the team should have a way to update it to remove options they don’t have. I order crunchy tacos only to get there and discover their fryer was down and had to make a different choice. Clearly not the end of the world but i didn’t find out until I went up to the counter to pick up so obviously the order wasn’t ready, the point of the app is to save time when I’m in a hurry and if that can happen it would have been faster for me to just go through the line and place an order the regular way. That way it easy to say light salsa too. I’m not sure I’ll use the app again...
I ❤️❤️❤️❤️this place & eat here so much That I switch restaurant locations at times cause i go so often! I love getting points each visit they build up fast .. but that’s about all I can do with the app is scan at the check out . I can’t order from app , can’t put a favorite in off the menu into app even after I’m home page its an option because it does not store my orders in its memory! Never any specials in my area EVER( to get faster points) Even with ordering from 3-4 places in south jersey and two places in Manhattan.. almost daily ! IF I could place an order with my app ... when I go to check out in app ( I think you can pay with a card only) it charges me more .. says ordering for the first time $2.50 or a little more . Another way for getting faster points .. “try something new ... or favorite something new... well that’s stated on the home page only but no place in the app opens that offer up to use. I’m ok with walking in to order If I had to rely using this app to order.. I would Not be able.. like what if .. who Knows if something happened and I was unable to walk in and my cell speaker was broke .. i could not call an order in .. I couldn’t order via the app .. I’d miss chipotle hugely .. I’d have to go elsewhere! Thinking 🤔 how many missed costumers... due to issues with this app ?
Lacking basic functionality
I love the convenience of being able to order food by an application and have it ready when I get there. However, the chipotle app leaves a lot to be desired.I had purchased a gift card and loaded it onto my app, but when it got down to only seven dollars, it proved to be very frustrating because I couldn’t make up the rest of my order with another payment. I had to go to the store and have them scan the app in order to remove the remaining balance on the gift card and clear it out. The problem is, the folks in the store are not that well trained and it took three times of doing that in order to make it show properly. Also, even if you have more than one gift card, you have to remove one before you can add another. Once again, very inconvenient. It’s also very frustrating that you can’t order a vegan salad without the guacamole and get credit for that. If you aren’t ordering a two dollar add-on, then your order should be two dollars less. And finally, you should have the option to make something light or extra for every option. Sometimes I can and sometimes it says I have exceeded the number even though I basically ordered the same thing almost every day.
Continued Gift Card Issues
The app just doesn’t seem to want you to use gift cards. There has been a problem for weeks of it not showing any gift card balance, which support told me was going to be fixed. Still not fixed. The bigger issue for me is that I can’t load multiple gift cards. I LOVE Chipotle, so family and friends often give me gift cards for birthdays or Christmas. But when I have a $5 balance on a card thru the app (when it was actually working!), I can’t load another gift card to get it high enough to actually make the purchase, and there is no ability to split the payment between the gift card balance and credit card. The “response” to this is to use the small gift card balance toward a purchase in store...which makes the app pretty pointless! If I can only make 50% of the orders I would like to via the app, and the app itself is apparently unreliable, what is the point of the app? It is not a tall task to add the capability to load multiple gift cards or split the payment between a gift card and credit card (in fact I think the early versions of the app HAD that ability), so why is this still not a thing? I will eat Chipotle either way, but the point of the app is the convenience, and I find the continued neglect of the payment portion of the app supremely disappointing.
the app itself is pretty cool but chipotle do better.
we ordered off of this app only to realize 30 Minutes later our order had been canceled... no notification or explanation as to why. I had to click on the “where is my food?” Option to see (since it hadn’t came even past the estimated time!) where it was at. When we investigated further we saw that the app had charged the money anyway?!? Like what? If the order was canceled, refund the money. We then called up the chipotle we ordered from and they told us, a door dash employee had came to pick up the order but the chipotle location said they didn’t receive it...🤔hmm. How could that be, if the door dash employee received it & went to that chipotle to pick it up... how could they not have received it? If Chipotle is the one billing us.. how could they not have received it? come to find out they did have it in their system. They were just lazy and didn’t want to take the time to search for our order or make it. We ourselves had to leave the house to pick up the food/ get out money back. all in all Chipotle make sure your employees don’t try to scam people and act as if it’s all door dashes fault when in reality, they are at fault. Period.
I absolutely LOVE chipotle and my closest store is fantastic!! However, I have some specifications in my order that are not options on the app making it impossible to ever have a seemless ordering process!! I get my rice plain since I cannot have cilantro. Plain rice, however, is not an option when ordering over the app or in other online or food delivery platforms. I also like to get a side of sour cream. Outside of salsa, guacamole, and queso you’re unable to get additional sides of sour cream, cheese, lettuce, etc. I typically get a chicken bowl and order the meat on the side, this is also not an option. I would prefer to get a large bag of chips (with no dipping sauces), also Not a choice. The app also doesn’t offer any type of “special instructions” section. This leaves me having to place an order as close as possible and then I have to call the store and request my updates. This didn’t seem to be an issue but recently the stores added an automated system that answers all lines. Not only has it become a lengthy and anything but convenient process, but sometimes I’m unable to get through and my order is made incorrectly. This isn’t the stores fault , but the system doesn’t allow for orders outside of the norm. I would love to have a more seemless process in the future!!
Good thought, poor execution
Generally speaking, I love the app! However, the app should reflect when the store is unable to fulfill an order due to being out of an item or ingredient. Several other restaurant apps have no issue keeping up to date what’s actually currently in stock. Chipotle on the last several orders has called me to say they’re out of white rice, out of a specific drink, or even out of tortillas. There’s also no way to get a refund through the app when my whole order just got jacked up due to poor stocking issues at the store and a complete lapse of communicating that to customers. After tonight’s experience, I’m seriously considering scrapping the online ordering or delivering until some major changes have been put in place to remedy the refund issue as well as notifying customers what’s unavailable. I shouldn’t be able to place an order when the store is missing half of it. Especially when I can’t be reimbursed for it. Great concept, but a LONG way to go. Definitely am sticking to Panera at this rate who has an actual functioning delivery platform and exceptional customer service when they do make any errors. They certainly aren’t robbing people by refusing to refund food they quite literally can’t serve you.
Delivery option needs work
I ordered for my office through the app. This is my first attempt at delivery option, I have used the pickup option in the past. First, I put in the address to my work place. There was no option to select which Chipotle store to order from, but it said it delivers to my location and showed Chipotle locations on the map. I placed my order. I need to add to my order (I later find out I can’t, which is fine), so I call the Door Dash Support number. They tell me my order was sent to a location 11 miles away, the one near my home. The closest location to my work is less than 2 miles away. The outsourced cal support person asks what I want to add to my order. I tell him a burrito. He says he’ll communicate with Chipotle that I want to add a burrito (nice, specific). I get my delivery and the Door Dash dude says he got it from the location near my work. Well that’s good! I order another delivery for the additional items I need. Even though it says it was sent to my “home” location, I trust that maybe it was actually sent to the location near my work...it was not. This poor Door Dash lady drove 30-40 minutes to delivery two burritos. Why wouldn’t it be sent to the nearest store? Obviously the delivery feature needs work. Thanks for coming to my Ted Talk.
App works fine, stores do not
Often when the store is busy it’s quicker to just wait in line. At lunch time the store I go to brings out app orders 15-30 minutes later than promised while keeping the walk in line moving instead. They do a terrible job of managing the front and back. If orders are taking that long they should be bringing some up to the front so online orders are not slower than walk-ins, or send some employees to the back to help catch up. I go in with a friend, we order at the same time with the same promised order ready time and our orders come out 10 minutes apart, 10-20 minutes later than promised, cold and missing ingredients. My last trip my burrito was cold by the time I got to eat it, had very little chicken and was missing salsa, or at least so little I couldn’t see or taste it. When we entered the store we made note of the person at the back of the line. When she paid we started a stopwatch, and our orders didn’t come out for another 10 minutes after that. We could have made it through the long line twice and still got our food quicker than using the app to order. App orders only make sense when the store isn’t busy, because management seems unable to handle both app and in store orders in a timely manner.
Card Scan Issues
Aesthetically, functionally, and in just about every way, I think the Chipotle app is excellent. That said, I have an issue with the “Scan Card” feature when adding a payment type: I place my card within the border of the green lines, they all sync up for just a moment, and then... nothing happens. I have tried on probably 30 or 40 different occasions to use the Scan Card feature to add a payment, and it has worked exactly 0 times. Am I the only person who has had this issue? I skimmed the reviews and couldn’t find the same complaint but it’s entirely possible I just missed it. I’ve tried different cards, surfaces, lighting levels, and holding the card(s) different ways, all to no avail. At this point I feel like it must be a software issue. That one blemish on an otherwise stellar app is why I drop a star. (Realistically I’d give it 4.5 and not dock a whole star, BUT this is a pretty common feature in other apps and I can’t imagine it to be a difficult fix. Seems like the app software equivalent of a typo in a professional email.)
Getting it Right
I use the Chipotle app often and for various stores. I love an app to order for my food prior to entering a restaurant. For the most part this happens. There have been several occasions in the past few weeks where this has not happened. Last Saturday I ordered and I waited in my car until our pick up time. When I entered the restaurant and went to the pick up station the food was not even on the line yet. I mentioned it to the cashier and she didn’t seem to care. Another woman came over and asked if she could help me and I explained to her our food situation. She went to the back and the manager came out and apologized. I explained this was the 4th time we’d had this issue. She gave me the money back for the order. I explained I didn’t want the money back I just want them to get it right. She agreed, they needed to do a better job. Fast forward to today, I ordered dinner and when my daughter and I got the pick up station our food was ready to go. Good job Chipotle for fixing the issue promptly. Thank you!!
The app works as expected. I have to say I was let down by the restaurants customer service which’s why I am giving a bad review. Once I arrived to the location the store seemed slow and there was no one in the line. I was able to pick up the food quickly in this situation but the employees were definitely taking advantage of the slow period as they were grouped up talking between them self’s. Also when I went to the soda fountain they were out of sweet tea. There however was an employee there picking up a few items so I asked her if they had ant sweet tea available. The employees replied “I honestly don’t know...” and shrugged her shoulders. I work in customer service and this is definitely not the answer I was looking for as it does not help me. She would have been better off telling me they ran out and were working on a new batch. I however let her know I would ask one of her colleagues. When I went back to the register the employees were standing around the register talking casually to each other. They glanced and me and continued there conversation. After a little bit one of them were finally able to assist me in getting a sweet tea. I believe the customer service at this location needs to be addressed.
Ok most of the time
So the app is super easy to navigate and use, however, there always seems to be some sort of an issue. Like, I will try to put in an order and a notification will randomly pop up and say “oops, something went wrong”. What do you mean something went wrong? It has the strangest error messages like: the store isn’t open (when in fact I know it is as it’s the middle of the day and nowhere near closing time), or the app can’t find a store near me? Which also isn’t true, as there’s a store less than five miles from my house. Another irritating issue is how sensitive the app is when choosing options to add to your meal. I now have to double/triple check my order in the cart to make sure I didn’t accidentally brush over something I don’t want. I’ve had random crap added to my food and didn’t realize it until it was too late. So, all in all, the app works fine a majority of the time, minus the sensitivity of choosing the add ins. It’s just frustrating when it does the stupid meltdowns! I never have issues with any other app I use, that’s why I felt compelled to write this.
Always leaving off Honey Vinaigrette for delivery
Service is fast and on time however I always enjoy the salad bowl from the Conyers, GA location and after my 4th-5th order they continue to leave off the salad dressing. I check my receipts it is on the receipts. I have called complained, left notes for them not to forget and they can never grant me a completed order upon delivery. I get mistakes are made but every singe time like this is what makes the salad good, now I’m like ugh I can’t eat it so I’m wasting money. Then the managers never respond or resolve the issue. I have never experienced this continuously awful experience from an establishment ever before. Like EVER!!!! Seems as if they do not care to fix it! I can see after reading reviews I’m not alone with the dressing always being left out the order. Please do better or compensate your customers. This is horrible. S.T.R Addendum: my latest order was perfect and even received my vinaigrette after many tries!! Food amazingly good as always!!
