It’s OK, Mama: you’re not lazy for wanting to hit the drive-thru. You’re a parent — and getting kids in and out of the car is no easy feat (especially before dinnertime). And if you’re like most moms, you probably sometimes wish everything came in drive-thru form.

Well, to the delight of burrito-loving parents everywhere, the Mexican chain Chipotle may soon be adding drive-thru windows to its restaurants. According to an article published on, the expansion will start with a single restaurant in Ohio, and where it will go from there remains to be seen.

It’s a small piece of good news for the beleaguered chain, which has suffered a rash of unfortunate events lately, including a food poisoning outbreak and reports of rats in one of its restaurants.

Rats? Food poisoning? Hopefully, the drive-thru will be tantalizing enough to make hungry families forget.
