Picking up your favorite meal at Chipotle just got even more convenient.
Gone are the days of getting out of your car, and burning a few calories walking through a parking lot to retrieve a burrito bowl.

Tampa's first Chipotle with a drive-thru opened today at 8301 N Dale Mabry Hwy. The "Chipotlane," is a little different than a standard drive-thru, however, and doesn't actually allow guests to just pull up and place an order.

Instead, the pick-up window is reserved for online orders through the Chipotle website or the mobile app.

Chipotle first started toying with the idea of "Chipotlanes" back in 2017, and opened Florida's first one in Orlando in 2019. Florida is now home to over 25 "Chipotlanes," but this location is the first in Tampa.

According to the website, the next nearest Chipotlane locations are in Zephyrhills, Odessa and Ellenton.
