WATERTOWN — Customers will soon be able to order their burritos and other Mexican-inspired meals from Chipotle without getting out of their vehicles.
Chipotle Mexican Grill will add a drive-thru window at the restaurant in City Center, a sprawling commercial plaza on Western Boulevard.
On Tuesday, the Watertown Planning Board approved the site plans that allow the project to move forward.
Customers will place their orders through the Chipotle mobile app or via its website, then pick them up in what the national restaurant chain calls a “Chipotlane,” all without having to leave their cars.
A Chipotle representative told planning board members that the project doesn’t include adding “an order board,” so customers must order their food before they get to the restaurant.
