Chipotle Mexican Grill will be opening its second restaurant in Astoria in the late fall, the company has confirmed.

The fast-casual restaurant chain, which specializes in burritos and tacos, will open at 22-06 31st St. The establishment will be taking space in a new building that already has T.J. Maxx as a tenant.

The chain opened a restaurant at 31-73 Steinway St. in Astoria earlier this year.

Chipotle operates several locations in Queens, including at 26-16 Jackson Ave. in Long Island City; 87-10 Northern Blvd. in Jackson Heights; and 70-30 Austin St. in Forest Hills.

There are more than 2,500 Chipotle restaurants in the United States.

Mom & Pops are being pushed out for these chains, which we really don’t need in Astoria. The things that make Astoria one of the great neighborhoods is slowly being eroded by mass commercialization. The next thing to go is the Key Food supermarket to be replaced by Target. I have nothing against Target but no one asked for one. The Ditmars Blvd. area used to be filled with lots of small shops that gave us a variety to choose from and healthy competition.
