What's a Qdoba anyways?

Only the best damn fast food, chain restaurant that I've eaten at in a while.

Granted, it was Christmas Eve when we went in and the place was empty, but I can tell you from experience that slow times are the hardest time to keep your staff motivated.  So I must say that I was pleasantly surprised when we snuck in the back door and were still greeted with honest, glad-to-see-you, hello, welcom to Qdobas.

We had peeked at the menu prior to walking over (another plus for La Qunita, not just Denny's, but Qdoba, Panera, Starbucks, Game Stop, and Applebees within walking distance and that's before crossing the street) so we wouldn't stand there all day trying to figure it out.  I made a last minute change to my choice and ordered the Mexican Gumbo, Lovey had the Shredded Beef Burrito.  We got a side of guacamole since we're avocado hounds.

Let me just say this: OH MY FREAKING DELICIOUS GOODNESS!  Yeah, it was good.

I don't know what all went in his burrito.  I took a bite but I couldn't tear myself away from the Gumbo.  If you like the Mexican food or even the TexMex, I suggest giving this a try.  In-greedy-ents:

  • black plastic bowl
  • big scoop of white rice
  • big scoop of your choice of pinto or black beans
  • scoop of tortilla soup
  • scoop of your choice of mild, medium, or hot salsa
  • huge scoop of your choice of chicken or beef (chicken=yummy)
  • sour cream (optional)
  • cheese (optional)
  • tortilla strips

Fan-friggin-tastic.  I'm a Q-girl for life!

  • I got the "spicy habanero" chicken there once, and I had to dump about 1/3 of a bottle of Cholula on it to get it to taste like something.

  • Damn, that sucks. What's the hispanic population like over there? Just wondering if it might be directly proportionate to how much taste gets stuck in the food.

  • It should be fairly corporate-dictated and consistent. We have plenty of hispanics in my part of the world, both in front of and behind the counter, but for my money the best chain burrito comes from Taco del Mar.

  • I'd imagine it should be. We don't have any Taco del Mar places down here which is a shame because I love some good Mexican food.
    Do you like to eat fire? I like spice but not too much. Maybe you just have stronger tastebuds than me. 🙂

  • I like it spicy, but I haven't seared my tongue to the point where I can't taste anything.

  • Hmm, well, either yours was having a bad day or that one was having a wonderful day. I'll post again once I've had Qdoba in Miami.

  • Ohhh! We love Qdoba!! Just ate there Saturday. I get the chicken quesadilla. Abram gets pork and dumps their hottest salsa all over it.

Say What?
