This is how they roll down Hayward(?) way:

And here’s a review:

Oh, why did I eat that? Burger King’s black bun Halloween Whopper has ‘colorful’ after-effects

CHIPOTLE Opens in the Great Middle of Frisco: July 2, 2015 at Geary and Masonic – Mervyn’s Heights Will Never Be The Same

Wednesday, July 1st, 2015

Who knows, maybe they‘ve soft opened already by this late date? IDK.

Here’s all I know about this “Mexican” “Restaurant”

Chipotle Mexican Grill
2675 Geary Blvd San Francisco, CA 94118
(415) 202-0781
Today 11:00 am – 10:00 pm

Anyway, here’s what it looked like a week ago, complete with acres of free parking right out front:

Speaking of which, man this place is going to be hard to get to – nobody would purposefully design the streets around City Centre Mall the way they are these days. First came Sears and then came the rise of the millionaire NIMBY neighbors (yes even here, in this bleak place) and then you mix in five decades of random happenstance, and then you’ll end up with a rat-maze of one-way streets and left-turn onlys.

Here’s the map:


If you’re at Geary and Mason, simply enter Target, take the escalator upstairs, exit Target and then take the Great Chipotle Tunnel past the Panera Bread and boom, there you go.

Bon Courage, I guess.

Chipotle Mexican Grill Opening at Geary and Masonic in Mid-July, Allowing the Great Middle of SF to Live Mas

Monday, May 4th, 2015

Mid-July is the official anticipated opening date for the new Chipotle located around back of the City Target Mall at 2675 Geary atop Mervyn’s Heights.

As you can see, Chips has firm beachheads in the northeast and southwest, and now Food With Integrity is invading the Great Middle of Frisco:

This one’s a done deal, and who knows when another “grass-roots” effort will spring up with locals demanding a Chipotle for their neighborhood, as with a few years back

“BURRITOFICATION IN PROGRESS” – Chipotle Chain Store Comes to Mervyn’s Heights, 94118 – NOW HIRING at Geary and Masonic

Monday, April 6th, 2015

After a giant Fail Whale landed upon the efforts to bring a Chipotle Mexican Grill to the masses at Church and Market a few years back, the purveyors of America’s Favorite Mission-style Burrito set about making things work up at 2675 Geary.

And lo, here it is:

Entire West Side Wonders When Its Chipotle is Going to Get Here, at Geary and Masonic

Monday, December 22nd, 2014

Co-opting The Mission Burrito sure takes a long time, huh?

Artist’s conception of what the mighty sign on Masonic will look like, sooner or later:

Appears as if Panera Bread will win the race to further chainify the Western Addition

And it looks like not a single soul in the world will raise a voice against the Chipotle chain coming to 2675 Geary.

Regular San Franciscans Just LOVE Chain Stores, Chapter #1801: Panera Bread, OPENING SOON in the Western Addition

Monday, December 1st, 2014

Well, here it is, “OPENING SOON!” as promised:

7J7C9882 copy

So this chain already has 1800 or so outlets, so let’s call this place at Geary and Masonic Store #1801.

The thing is, regular San Franciscans, not the electeds, you know, just regular people, love chain stores and here’s the test: OPEN ONE UP AND SEE IF PEOPLE SHOP THERE. You dig? That’s why chain stores are banned or are effectively banned in certain areas under certain conditions.

If San Franciscan didn’t like chain stores, then chain stores wouldn’t open up here in the first place, or, if they did, then nobody would shop there and then the chain stores would close up and leave.

Now this particular chain store is hidden away, like a porno shop, and that helped it get approved. you see, we like chain stores but we don’t want to see them all over the place.

On It Goes…

OMG, OMG, Here’s What the New Chipotle at Geary and Masonic Will Look Like – Lesson: Westeros Just _Loves_ Chain Stores

Monday, May 19th, 2014

Here’s what it’ll look like, buried deep inside the City Centre Mall at Geary and Masonic, you now, the former home of Sears and then Mervyn’s and now the current home of City Target West:

And speaking of chain sto’s, drink it up, Gentle Reader:

Now you’d think one person, perhaps just one solitary millionaire NIMBY, would take two minutes to register an objection, but you’d be wrong. WRONG WRONG WRONG! Not a single soul raised a peep, so here comes Chipotle to San Francisco’s District Two.

The gritty nitty from our Planning Commission.

Westeros, the West Side of Frisco, loves, just loves, chain stores, is what I’m saying.

In closing, The Mall Has It All.

Street Buns, Street Buns, Street Buns! From McDonalds – See Where Your Egg McMuffin Bread Gets Put Before You Buy It

Wednesday, November 20th, 2013

This isn’t literally on Haight Street – it’s on the short road drivers use to get from Haight Street to the McDonalds parking lot next to Amoeba Records. This is where cars would drive thru if this store had a drive-thru window.

I guess the pavement suffices when employees need a place to put the buns down temporarily:

(Next time I pass through, I’ll check to see if they still offer the McDouble at the loss-leader, giveaway price of  just a dollar. McDonaldsese’s Dollar Menu has been updated nationally recently, and some local franchises have used that opportunity to raise McDouble prices to $1.29.  This particular franchise on Haight Street was famous a couple of years back for  banishing the Dollar Menu in order to, purportedly, cut down on the general hippie/streetkid population in the area.)

  • We use only freshly sprouted certified organic live grains.
  • Our products are kosher.

Instead, we use malted barley, a natural sweetener produced from sprouted barley, which is basically a carbohydrate comprised mostly of complex carbohydrates rather than the “sugar” carbohydrates.
  • We don’t use anything artificial – no preservatives or shortenings.
  • We use a unique slow-bake process to preserve the natural fiber and bran benefits of grains.
