VERDICT: Good news, it's a whole meal that fits in your hand.  Bad news, it's a whole meal that fits in your hand.

I never tried Qdoba (or its slick twin Chipotle) until recently.  And yes, Chipotle and Qdoba are almost the same restaurant, so feel free to take this to be Chipotle as well.  This is great quick Mexican food for when you want a burrito.  Greg doesn't like burritos because he feels like he doesn't get enough food.  "It's only one thing...that's not a meal".  Wah, wah, wah....what a baby!  I learned that if I get the three tacos instead, he's less likely to complain.
I happened to have discovered the perfect recipe for Qdoba.  Feel free to use it if you desire:
Flour tortilla
Pulled pork
Cilantro-lime rice
Black beans
Sour cream (I have it on good authority, that they add crack to their sour cream.)
Salsa Verde

I didn't think I would like the pork, but then I saw 4 people in a row order it.  I tried it and it is far superior to any of the other meat choices.  By the way, this little meal that I created above runs about 1055 calories!  That is so a meal!  Check out their nutritional calculator.

  1. I agree that Qdoba is much like Chipotle but I like Chipotle just a tad better in the flavor department. Both times I have eaten at Qdoba I had to take the food back as it was cold and before you ask, it was not a salad. Once the manager/supervisor came over and apologized the other time the cashier took my plate with a painful look on his face and put the plate down by one of the workers and came back to the cash register and helped the next customer. After several minutes and no action on my food I said maybe I should just get my money back as it didn't look like I was going to get to eat anytime soon. Then he yelled and ranted at one of the employees who returned the verbage to the cashier. Don't know what they said as I think it was in spanish????. Bottom line is that I have not returned to see if they have gotten any better. There are too many other places that serve Mexican food as good or better than Qdoba.

  2. I don't think that is a systemic problem. My Qdoba is always hot, fresh, and friendly.

    That Qdoba sounds horrible.
