The wait is over.
After years of testing and tweaking, Chipotle Mexican Grill will finally add quesadillas to its menu nationwide — but only for online orders
The menu addition has been under consideration since at least 2018, but the burrito chain knew a nationwide launch would require new cooking equipment and changing up its assembly lines. Tacos and burrito bowls can be made quickly, but quesadillas need time for the cheese to melt and the tortilla to turn golden. Last June, Chipotle started testing quesadillas as a digital-only item in Cleveland and Indianapolis.
