Best Burrito

Chipotle

Chipotle is perhaps the perfect chain restaurant for Seattle. It's a massive, international operation that all started with just one location and one man. It values sustainability and good farming practices, treats its employees well, and during its expansion phase—though it went over to the dark side by becoming part of the McDonald's family of partner brands—it escaped in 2006 and came back stronger than ever as a publicly traded company with one of the best IPOs in almost a decade. Now it's big enough that the decisions it makes can alter the lives of farmers or ranchers thousands of miles away. Most important, though? Chipotle still consistently makes the best burrito in virtually every city it lands in—and Seattle is no exception. These Mission-style burritos are huge, reasonably priced, made with good ingredients, and assembled fresh-to-order by employees who actually have to look you in the eye while they make your food. All together, it's a hard act to beat. —Jason Sheehan 10 area locations
