    So first of all, for those of you who don't know, this place is supposed to be almost exactly like Chipotle, and I fucking love Chipotle. The main differences seem to be that Qdoba has a couple queso sauces that Chipotle doesn't, and they are a bit cheaper, so win/win, methinks. Also some people, like my derpy sister, claim Qdoba is superior.

    So we go last night to get a couple burrito bowls, and my first impressions are not stellar. We walked in about an hour before closing time, and several of the little trays that they keep the ingredients in are either empty or have clearly been sitting there a spell. I can kind of understand that if they're slow, (which they were, with only one other party in the restaurant, in stark contrast to Chipotle's neverending line of customers) but it just doesn't make your product look good, from an aesthetic or freshness point of view. I asked for fajita vegetables and they had to stop everything to cook up a new batch, though to be fair it only took a minute.

    So my bowl had white rice, black beans, chicken, steak (which again looked old when they scooped it out, but was very good when I tasted it), corn salsa, verde sauce, fajita veggies, guacamole, and lettuce. I asked for the "Queso Diablo" spicy cheese sauce, but yet again there wasn't anything more than the dregs at the bottom of the tin, so they had to use what was left of it, and then some of the regular queso sauce to fill my order. :nojj: Miss Chriza's was similar but she got shredded beef, and sour cream and cheese. :pig:

    Overall, I'd say it was pretty good, but not great. Chipotle is great. This didn't taste nearly as fresh, and it probably wasn't. If Chipotle is a 9 or 10 in my eyes, this is probably a 7. Good try, but hail to the king.

    Miss Chriza also got an order of chips and queso, and while both were nice and warm, and they give you a metric fuckton of chips...the queso just isn't very good. You have to really aim to get a lot of the chunks for it to have any flavor, the cheese itself is watery and bland

    I've never been before. I've thought about it before, but always figured I would be disappointed because what I secretly wanted was Chipotle.

    My girlfriend's mom got me a $25 gift card to Chipotle as one of my presents this year. You jealous?

    Yeah that would be awesome

    This WAS cheaper. They don't charge extra for guac. This meal at Chipotle probably would have been close to 25 bucks with the chips and dip, and it was only 19 here.

    I agree...Chipotle > Qdoba Chipotle has better quality meats and seasoning. The one thing Qdoba has going for it is Queso...now if Chipotle would just add queso to their lineup it would be a grand slam.

    That all said, I don't think I'll be going back anytime soon, with Chipotle literally the exact same distance away and tasting definitely better :yes:
