How many of you like Mexican food? Around our home, it's not just a "like"-it's a LOVE! Every one of us loves Mexican, and it's easily our first choice when dining out. When I was given the opportunity to "review" our nearby Qdoba Mexican Grill, the only question was who to bring with me!
C and I ended up going to Qdoba by ourselves one afternoon when the rest of the family was busy. The restaurant sits back in a plaza, and it was nice and quiet when we walked in. (We soon learned we were just ahead of the lunch rush, because soon the place was packed!).
This was my first time in quite a while to eat at Qdoba, so we both took a few minutes to check out the menu. Everything sounded so good that we had a hard time deciding what to eat! I finally settled on the Queso Burrito with Chicken, and C ordered a Fajita Ranchera Burrito. I was very pleased to be able to get my Queso Burrito on a whole wheat tortilla. Most Mexican restaurants don't offer this, but I love whole wheat tortillas! This was just the first step in choices though, and I was able to completely customize my burrito! It's like a Mexican Subway, as you watch the employees create your burrito right in front of you! You can personalize your entree with black beans, pinto beans, lime-cilantro rice, pico de gallo, roasted chile corn, salsa verde, lettuce, sour cream, shredded cheese, grilled vegetables, and much more! I only added a few items to my burrito, and I could not believe how big it was! C, however, was a little more adventurous, and added several toppings and extras. The employee literally could barely get her tortilla to close! Check this out:
We wasted no time digging into the burritos, and we were not disappointed. My Queso Burrito features (you guessed it) Qdoba's signature Queso, which is absolutely delicious! Very rich and creamy, it is the perfect addition to a burrito. The black beans and rice were very tasty. I was extremely impressed with the overall fresh quality of the food. Mexican food tastes so much better fresh! Oh, and I actually had to eat my burrito with a fork, as it was too big to fit in my mouth :)
C really enjoyed her Fajita Ranchera Burrito as well. She had hers made with chicken, pinto beans, cilantro-lime rice, as well as some of the other add-ins. This signature entree features a sauce with tomatoes, onions, poblano peppers, garlic and spices that C really liked.
