A new Chiptole restaurant — the first Queens location with a walk-up window — opened in Flushing Thursday.
The casual Mexican eatery opened at 136-31 Roosevelt Ave. and offers the usual menu items including burritos, burrito bowls, tacos, quesadillas, salads, guacamole, chips and queso. The restaurant is open daily from 10:45 a.m. to 10 p.m.
The location is the 15th Chipotle restaurant in Queens, but the first in the borough — and the second citywide — to have a walk-up window for customers picking up digital orders.
The new feature allows customers to pick up their to-go orders without having to go inside the restaurant. The first Chipotle location with a walk-up window opened in Brooklyn earlier this year.
Customers must place an order either online at Chipotle.com or through the Chipotle app to pick up their food at the walk-out window.
Customers can also use the website and app to round up their bill to the nearest dollar amount in order to donate their change to The American Red Cross, a nonprofit that provides emergency assistance, disaster relief and disaster preparedness education.
There are more than 181 Chipotle locations across the state — 97 of which are located in the five boroughs.
