Few debates ignite a fire within many Wesleyan students the same way that Mexican food does. Perhaps that statement could be misconstrued; what I mean is, students are very passionate about Mexican restaurants. Some like Moe’s, others like Chipotle, and Jack Connors worked at Taco Bell. One time I even heard of someone who liked Qdoba. The point is, for ages people have been arguing about why one is better than the other. To be honest, I think they are all good, but I do prefer Moe’s over Chipotle, so I suppose I can pretend like it’s a big deal to me just for the sake of beating Ellie.
In light of recent events, this isn’t really going to be that hard. If nothing else, Moe’s is simply better because it won’t give you Ebola. I heard that Chipotle’s food has Ebola in it. That stuff is dangerous. Just kidding, it’s actually E.Coli. On top of that, Moe’s tastes better. When scripture refers to Canaan as the land of milk and honey, they are talking about Moe’s queso. I don’t really have any cold hard facts at all, but based on my frequent visits to both establishments I am pretty sure that Moe’s offers way more bang for your buck.
Most importantly, Moe’s has a way better atmosphere. When you walk into Chipotle no one yells “WELCOME TO CHIPOTLE!!!” and honestly if they did that would be pretty weird. At the local Moe’s, Ignacio makes everyone feel welcome. For a good while back in the day, you could get a free t-shirt if you yelled “welcome to Moe’s” before the employees did. They stopped doing that because they were losing a whole bunch of money giving away all those free shirts. Also, Chipotle does not have the Coca-Cola Freestyle machine. Moe’s does have that. Plus, Moe’s has TV’s, and Chipotle does not. Maybe they are trying to promote social interaction or something pointless like that.
Anyway, this argument is just silly because all of the Mexican restaurants are pretty darn good. That being said, Willy’s is far and away the best.
Simply put, Chipotle is bae. Chipotle is the best Mexican restaurant in the Forum by far, much better than stupid Moe’s. There are many different Mexican restaurant similar to Chipotle; for example, Willy’s, Taco Bell, Cheeky’s, ect., but Chipotle is the obvious choice. I know that Will is arguing for Moe’s, but I know for a fact that he is a huge fan of Chipotle because more than once, he has made me sit with him while he enjoys his Chipotle burrito.
There are many things about Moe’s that are problematic, but the main one is that the food at Moe’s is not fresh. In fact, the food is so yucky that I refuse to eat there. Sometimes I wonder how long the food has been sitting out, and the fact that I even have to ask myself that question is a reason not to go there. Also, it is so annoying when you walk in to Moe’s and all of the workers yell at you. Sure, they are saying welcome, but I feel like I am being ganged up on, and it is not nice. Senior Alex Thompson, who also hates Moe’s couldn’t have said it better when he said, “If you hate yourself, you should go to Moe’s. It is the worst excuse for a Mexican restaurant ever created.”
Chipotle, on the other hand, is a casual, fine-dining restaurant every day of the week. The food there is fresh and always delicious. They also have some stellar billboards, including one that says, “From Farm to Face,” emphasizing how freshly served their food is. The only bad part about Chipotle is that they do not serve queso. However, their chips are much better than the salted cardboard that Moe’s serves with their meals. Yeah, at Chipotle there is E.coli here and there, but let’s be real, who doesn’t love to play the risk? Out of the five people that I have asked, four of them said that they prefer Chipotle to Moe’s because their food is simply better. Though Moe’s has a good atmosphere, when it comes down to the quality of the food, Chipotle has Moe’s beat by a long shot.
