QUEENSBURY — Chipotle Mexican Grill will open a restaurant in Northway Plaza, becoming the latest in myriad chain eateries along the busy stretch of Route 9.

The Mexican restaurant chain, which advertises its menu as “food with integrity,” has filed plans with the town to open next to the Queensbury post office in the plaza, said Supervisor John Strough.

“They’re going through site plan review at the Planning Board to be open by this summer,” Strough said Wednesday.

Already, about a dozen chain restaurants are located along that stretch of Route 9, including Texas Roadhouse and Panera Bread in Northway Plaza.

The closest Chipotle Mexican Grill restaurants now are in Wilton and Clifton Park.
