Chipotle Is Putting An End To A Viral $3 Burrito Hack


After a viral Tik Tok showed Chipotle fans how to order a chipotle burrito for only $3 on the Chipotle app. The hack entailed ordering one taco and requesting burrito ingredients as sides. For just $3.35, the TikToker could build a burrito. Considering Chipotle dominates the fast-casual Mexican food market (via Restaurant Dive), it should be no surprise that fans were eager to take advantage of this new hack. Even so, not all the responses were positive. One user wrote, “This not even worth it and such a pain on the workers don’t do this pls.” Others predicted that Chipotle would “gonna change the app settings after this” or “start charging” for the hack requests.

However, after a disruptive increase in demand, Chipotle released a message informing customers that it was making moves to prevent the hack. In a statement to Insider, Chipotle’s chief corporate affairs officer, Laurie Schalow, advised that the Chipotle app would no longer allow users to order a single taco. When explaining the rationale behind the decision, she stated, “While we have long embraced customizations and even released our own hack menu, the current social media trend is resulting in a poor experience for our food, our employees, and our customers waiting for orders.”
