"Sometimes the numbers are so good, they speak for themselves. That's how I feel about this company," Jim Cramer said. "Even with shares up so much, I find it difficult to say no to Chiptole, given the growth."
Largely, Cramer is excited by recent metrics issued by Chipotle earlier in the week amid earnings. Specifically, "Chipotle posted a 17.3 percent increase when the analysts were looking for 10.6 percent same-store-sales growth. That's just amazing!"
And there was plenty more to like.
net income had risen $110.3 million, or $3.50 per share, compared with $87.9 million, or $2.82 a share a year earlier.
Revenue increased to $1.05 billion from $817 million a year ago.
Analysts were expecting earnings of $3.09 a share on $990 million in revenue, according to a consensus estimate from Thomson Reuters.
"And on top of everything else, management gave bullish full-year guidance, raising their 2014 same-store-sales forecast from the high single digits to the mid-teens," Cramer added.
The "Mad Money" host just couldn't be more impressed.
And, although Cramer hates to chase a stock which has rallied 10 percent in a week, he would certainly get ready to deploy some cash in the event of a pullback.

Cramer slices into Apple earnings
Unfortunately, you'll need to deploy a considerable amount of cash. At $661 per share, Chipotle is a pricey investment.
And unlike Apple and Google, Chipotle Chief Financial Officer Jack Hartung told "Mad Money" his company isn't looking at a stock split. "Most of our investors don't have any interest in a stock split. The appetite from our investors isn't there," Hartung said.
Fortunately, for shareholders, the appetite for Chipotle's delicious burritos is an entirely different story. And, over the long-term, Cramer doesn't see that changing, either.
