Deliverance Of The Queso Burrito
While watching Return of the Jedi Sunday night in my apartment with my roommates Jesse and Mike and Mike's girlfriend Lisa, we worked up a Chewbacca sized appetite for Qdoba burritos.
A little rain and a speedy delivery man had no ill effects on the structure of these burritos.
Beware entrants of the next burrito speed eating contest, this burrito did not last very long on my plate!
The Phantom Discovers Burrito Blog
Of course, we met for a burrito business lunch - Qdoba on Comm Ave.
No, Dan is not 'The Phantom.' Dan is the man behind the curtain. And the man behind the curtain likes burritos.
This particular segment of quick-service Mexican food [is] one of the fastest-growing in the industry... Industry leader Chipotle -- owned by McDonald's Corp. and based in Denver -- has more than 320 stores, according to the Nation's Restaurant News. Qdoba Mexican Grill, based in Wheat Ridge, Colo., has more than 200 stores, according to Karen Guido, vice president of marketing, and is opening one or two a day across the country.
It looks these days like Mexican is winning the fast-casual wars. Call it the Battle of the Burrito -- metaphorically analogous to Mexico beating the French at the Battle of Puebla, commemorated by Thursday's Cinco de Mayo celebrations (which -- not to digress -- also celebrates American domination of the Margarita and Mexican beer markets).

The incredible three cheese burrito is not incredible...at all.

John also claims he received discriminatory stares for declining frijoles.This Qdoba meal was rated: .
Welcome to QdobaQdoba is a large (over 171 locations in 31 states) chain burrito restaurant. It's owned by Jack in The Box. Don't believe me? Read the profile in Yahoo! Finance or this message on the Qdoba site.
It's actually quite unbelievable that a restaurant started only 10 years ago could grow so quickly to an empire, especially when they require a net worth of $3 million to open a franchise. Ok, enough corporate burrito bashing.
