RENO, NV - It's a day local fans of Chipotle Mexican Grill have been looking forward to.
"I'm very excited, I used to eat here two to three times a week when I lived in California," Wes Staples of said. "I've been waiting, counting the days, checking on Facebook to see when this place would open. They finally did and now I'm here."
There was a steady stream of customers all afternoon long.
"I'm a huge Chipotle fan; that's where my friends and I used to always go when I lived in Las Vegas," Cameron White said. "It was a place for us to get together and have good, inexpensive food. There's something for everyone here and I've been waiting for one to open up in Reno for a long time so I'm really happy it's here."
Bryan Galvan was a regular customer when he was stationed at Ft. Carson in Colorado. On opening day in Reno, he went to get takeout for his family.
"My family has never had it before because they never came down to see me when I was at Fort Carson," Galvan said. "So this is going to be their first time trying it and I told them they're really going to enjoy this food. I think it's amazing."
The store is still looking to hire.
