    For those of you misfortunate enough not to have one in your town: Qdoba Mexican grill.
    Ever since I've discovered this place for lunch I've gained something like 8lbs! I eat there 1-2 times per week.
    And now I find out that they are building one a block away from where I work! Also, they're starting to serve beer! My two vices right down the street.. Mexican food and beer!
    What can I do? My clothes don't fit anymore! And Germanfest is just around the corner and I don't think I'll fit into my lederhosen!

    Yeah! Love 'em. They used to be called Z-Teca, but some fleabag joint in Phoenix sued for copywrite infringement. their name was something like Azteca Ristorante.
    So they just changed the name to avoid a suit.
    I think Z-Teca sounds better. Now, I go into Qdoba and expect to sit in a booth made of "Rich corinthian leather".[​IMG]

    I'm addicted to 'dobs' my self. They opened in the Fall of '03, and it makes great college food to live on. Way better than Chipotle IMO.

    I'm an addict myself. One opened down the street from me (easy walking distance). Also, they make for a great hangover cure come Saturday morning.[​IMG]

    They've got some big ass burritos. I'm surprised there are no Mall of America quips. [​IMG]

    Yep, I'm a Chipotle man myself. Used to like QDoba back when it was Z-Teca, but then it started getting bland. Then, Chipotle came to town and BLEW IT AWAY as far as the three Fs of flavor, freshness, and friendliness.

    There used to be a Qdoba here -- I loved it! Sadly it closed, so it has been quite a while since I've had it. Nor do we have Chipotle yet -- there is apparently going to be one opening next month, albeit in a crappy congested part of Omaha that would take me 30+ minutes to drive to. The last time I had a Qdoba here it was quite a bit better than the Chipotle I had last summer in Minneapolis.

    I use to eat at Qdoba's a lot but I don't have one near me now. I use to work near one. I do have a Chipotle about 20 min away I think I'll check it out. From what I see it's not as good as Q's but I'll just imagine it is Q's and enjoy it. I always pass by Chipotle and wonder what it like.

    That would have been true for me a few years ago, but now we have:
    Moe's Southwest Grill [​IMG]
    Tijuana Flats [​IMG]
    Baja Burrito Kitchen [​IMG]
    Chipotle's [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    The burrito revolution has begun.
