Chipotle’s very first burger restaurant is now open.

The first Tasty Made location opened inLancaster, Ohioon Thursday, just two days after Chipotle announced that same-store sales at the burrito chain fell 23.6% in the third quarter. Chipotle is hoping it can take the lessons it’s learned in burrito-making and apply them to burgers.

Here’swhat it’s like to visit the burger chain that Chipotle is hoping will help save its business.


From the outside, the restaurant has a 1950s aesthetic. Unlike Chipotle, it has a drive-thru.


Tasty Made looked pretty busy on its first day of business.

The location has just four items on its retro-style menu: burgers, fries, shakes, and sodas.

The menu board and the foil-wrapped burgers have a look that is somewhat reminiscent Five Guys.

The concept seems to have at least one thing that sets it apart from other burger chains: a smoky bacon “tasty sauce.”

“The Tasty Made,” the concept’s signature burger, is made with a beef patty topped with American cheese, tomato, lettuce, pickles, and tasty sauce. It can be ordered as a single for $4.25 or a double for $6.25.
