Anybody else tried this place? It's been open 2 weeks in Salem. We went for lunch today -- pleasant room and decor, colorful southwestern art, lots of tables including some out on the sidewalk, but hardly anyone there. It seemed to us to be a sort of Chipotle/Qdoba clone, except that they do sell beer and wine.. Despite the name, the chalkboard menu emphasized burritos (done in a build your own style as you move down the line - no table service); there was a non-obvious print menu near the cash register with some other choices including pozole and tacos. Several bottled hot sauces were available. Staff looked to be pretty much all college kids. Our burritos were all right, but unless I'm right in the area with a craving for this type of Mexican, I'd think I'd still take Chipotle.
