After years of waiting and speculation, Northland burrito fans can finally take a bite of Chipotle.

A continually growing line waited outside Miller Hill Mall minutes before the Duluth Chipotle officially opened Friday.

Those waiting said the burrito would be worth the time, and one fan said she's been waiting for a Duluth Chipotle location ever since her friend introduced her to their burritos years ago.

"We went to lunch and it was like the greatest thing I've ever tried and I've been addicted ever since. Every time I go to the cities I call her to see where the closest one [Chipotle] is just so I can go get a burrito and be happy for the next three months," said Lexie Barcus.

Barcus waited in line for 25 minutes for her burrito.

The Chipotle regional manager told Eyewitness News it was the longest line he had seen for an opening. They held a soft opening Thursday, but now the burrito hot spot is open for good every day at 11 a.m.
