As many of you know, a chain restaurant (DUN DUN DUUUUUN!!!) is coming to Telegraph to replace Greg's Pizza. According to the Daily Cal article:
Popular fast-food chain Chipotle Mexican Grill is slated to open a location on Telegraph Avenue this vall, filling the vacant space left by Greg's Pizza between Channing Way and Durant Avenue.
Not only does Chipotle have the power to disrupt business on Telegraph, it can warp space and time to make Greg's old location between Channing and Durant, rather than between Durant and Bancroft.
Speaking of disrupting space and time, as usual, people concerned about "local-owned businesses" are coming out to bitch about the presence of reliable food. Quoted in the article is "Graduate student Robert Broesler."
It's bad for real taquerias which are cheaper and have better food.
It turns out, though, that La Burrita manager Jose Ramirez and Cafe Durant owner Hector Orozco aren't worried at all, and welcome it. But what would they know? "Graduate student Robert Broesler" understands.
