One week ago from today I told you that Chipotle Mexican Grill was the most primal friendly fast food restaurant chain. I have changed my mind. I was a little quick last week. Since then I have learned that Moe’s Southwest Grill serves 100% Grass Fed Sirloin Steak. That is a ginourmous win!
Do they cook their food with franken oils? Yes. Chipotle and QDoba do too. If you know of a fast food restaurant chain that cooks their food with coconut oil, palm oil or animal fat please let me know. I would love for them to talk to the owner of these burrito places, especially Moe’s.
Chipotle and Moe’s are very similar. They are both burrito places. Both places have quality meat. They both have awesome guacamole. You can get a large variety of veggies and salsas at both places.
What Are The Key Differences?
The following are major differences between Moe’s and Chipotle that I am personally aware of. I did a little research and thinking and came up with the following. If you know of more differences then please leave a comment below and I will update the post!
Moe’s Southwest Grill…
- 360 locations in 35 states as of 2007 according to Wikipedia
- Serves 100% Grass-Fed Steak
- Offers different toppings such as cucumber and bacon
- Has Ground Beef (Gives you more calories, energy, for less!)
Chipotle Mexican Grill…
- 1,084 locations in 38 states, England and Canada according to Wikipedia
- Serves Grass-Fed Steak, but is it Grass-Finished? I am not sure.
- Do they serve cucumber or bacon? I don’t remember seeing it.
- I don’t remember seeing ground beef on the menu.

Dear Moe and Chipotle: Will You Please Cook Your Food w/ Coconut Oil?
The primal lifestyle is one of the fastest growing movements today if not THE fastest. It’s pretty simple as to why this is but I don’t wish to get into it here. Us cavemen love the fact that you seem to care. You are a step ahead of the game. You serve better quality meat than most fast food restaurant chains.
The fact that you serve 100% Grass-Fed Sirloin Steak is almost a miracle. You care about animals but you understand how nourishing they are to our bodies. The price is still reasonable. I went in yesterday and enjoyed the salad that you see pictures above with steak. I was full when I still had a few bites left. I paid about $7.50. This was because I ordered guacamole which was amazing by the way! I could go to Applebees or Outback Steakhouse. But, to be honest, I would rather not. Why? I love quality food. You have that. They don’t. I will be back. Soon and often.
You are also a fantastic fast food restaurant to eat at. You are very similar to Moe’s but I believe you are just a step behind. If your grass-fed beef is grass-finished then please speak up. We want to know. We love the stuff. You have more locations than Moe’s but they may catch up soon unless you take action. The paleo diet meetup group was going to do a flashmob inside your place. Why? To try and get you to serve coconut oil. I am not sure why but this leads me to…
To Moe and Chipotle:
Will you please cook your food with coconut oil? There are millions out there who would literally eat at your restaurant every chance they get. I know I would be one of them. Primal meetup groups all around the world would have meetups there. Often. Your sales would skyrocket. Is coconut oil more expensive than soybean oil or whatever oil you use? Yes. But, again, you would get A LOT more business. I would promote you like crazy. I think Mark Sisson from Mark’s Daily Apple might help a little bit too. As of this moment my alexa ranking is 322,182 and continues to climb. Mark’s is 10,179 and continues to climb as well.
Do you want more business? Do you want to serve your food with a healthier and more tasty oil? You would still appeal to vegans and vegetarians alike. You would not lose any business. You would gain millions of customers around the world.
You are both lucky. You are truly perfect for us cavemen. Well, almost perfect. Moe is ahead by serving 100% grass-fed steak. Hey, is your ground beef 100% grass fed too? If so, I will order that next time I come in. If you begin to cook all your food with coconut oil then you will truly be perfect. It’s hard to reach perfection but this will do it. In my mind and in millions of others.
Moe & Chipotle: Are you ready to make the change?
It’s your turn. Leave a comment below if you want Moe and Chipotle to start cooking their food with coconut oil. I beg you to leave out animal fats because they still wish to appeal to vegetarians and vegans. Coconut oil is my number one choice anyways. I will be promoting this post like crazy. Moe and Chipotle have to know about it.
Please help me spread the word by doing one or ALL of the following:
Please leave a comment if you want Chipotle and Moe to start cooking their food with coconut oil. Tell them how badly you want it. Tell them how often you would eat there. Tell them how you currently think twice because they cook their food in franken oils. Do your part. It will work.
