NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Citigroup raised its price target on shares of Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) - Get Report from $648 to $793, according to TheStreet's Jim Cramer, co-manager of the Action Alerts PLUS portfolio

On CNBC's "Cramer's Mad Dash," he explained that the company's 17% comparable-store sales is "remarkable," and the stock deserves the highest valuation in its industry. 

"If you like Chipotle," Cramer said, play Chipotle by being long the stock. Don't look for substitutes. 

Cramer suggested investors use caution when jumping into a stock like El Pollo Loco (LOCO) - Get Report, even though it has acted well since its IPO last week.
