Chipotle is adding drive-through lanes across the country, but it's not your typical fast-food drive-through. You can't order food at the Chipotle drive-through, however, you can order food ahead of time via the app. You can drive through the mobile order lane to grab your burrito without having to go inside the store. Chipotle stores in Ohio, Tennessee, Texas and Massachusetts offer this service.
