The South Shore is getting a new Chipotle Mexican Grill.

The popular Tex-Mex food chain will be opening a location in Bay Shore sometime this fall.

The restaurant is slated to open at 1675 Sunrise Highway, which is on the same strip of stores as 24 Hour Fitness.

“We’re always looking for communities where we can serve responsibly sourced, classically-cooked, real food and establish new local partnerships, and the Bay Shore area is a great fit,” said a Chipotle spokesperson. “The Bay Shore location opens us up to a new community and makes it more accessible for everyone to enjoy wholesome food without added colors, flavors or other additives.”

The nearest Chipotle Mexican Grills are currently in Deer Park at the Tanger Outlets and in Hauppauge at 694 Motor Parkway. The fast-growing company also recently opened locations in Port Jefferson Station and Patchogue.
Altogether there are well over 2,000 Chipotle restaurants nationwide.
