Chain: Taco Bell.

Review: The "Cantina" project is Taco Bell's unsubtle attempt to go after Chipotle, which has redefined Mexican fast food over the last decade (in more ways than one: Check out the company's stock price over the last five years). The ingredients in the Cantina burrito — chicken, cilantro rice, black beans, guacamole, corn salsa, pico de gallo — will seem awfully familiar for anyone who's bellied up to a Chipotle counter recently. That said, Taco Bell should be given credit for executing this mimicry with aplomb. The cantina burrito is fresh and flavorful, and the cilantro dressing (one of the few ways in which Taco Bell departs from the Chipotle formula) is a nice addition, adding a creaminess that complements the other components well. We still prefer Chipotle's version, but given its price point (the Cantina chicken burrito comes in almost $2 less than a Chipotle chicken burrito), we expect the latter to be a popular alternative.
