The fast-food casual restaurant chain has had its collective hands full of problems like the E. coli outbreak in November 2015 or the norovirus-like symptoms customers experienced at one of the Virginia locations earlier this week.
Now in Dallas, one patron said that was raining rats from the ceiling of its downtown location. A Facebook video that has since been deleted (but can be seen on Twitter for your viewing displeasure) shows two unnamed mice scurrying on the floor of a Chipotle location in Dallas, allegedly after falling from the ceiling.
The Facebook caption was posted by user Bahadir Han Koseli who wrote: "Rats fell from the ceiling at Chipotle in the West End."
Needless to say, Koseli got a myriad of "Likes" on his FB page.

Koseli said the incident "brought a quick end to lunch" and claimed the management "didn't do anything while we were there but apologize."
Sure, they should have beaten the rats with fajita frying pans and brooms until they were little bloody pools of death while customers sat around and watched the show.
I don't think so.
Chipotle acknowledged the rat problem and outlined, to Fox News, measures it's taking to fix it.
But the real clincher for Chipotle wasn't the rat problem and the falling from the ceiling. No, the real problem for the restaurant chain is that PETA is suing them for not providing the rats with a safe, soft surface on which to land.
In addition, PETA claims that several of the rats were injured from the fall which would have never happened if Chipotle had a reinforced ceiling that didn't use acoustic tiling, which can easily break by the weight of those poor, misunderstood creatures of God.
