It could get downright ugly down on Fourth Street.
This puts the fast-casual restaurant across from Qdoba Mexican Grill, a very similar competitor. My office-mates and I have already had heated debates over the merits of each of these Mexican-ish chain restaurants. The fans on both sides are passionate and decisive.
I’m on Team Qdoba. Here’s why:
- Qdoba is all I know. I’ve only been to a Chipotle once. I’m not opposed to eating there; I’m just rarely in the same city with a Chipotle franchise. I live across the street from a Qdoba. Convenience is important, people.
- Qdoba has some pretty sweet rewards. With a Qdoba card, you get a free meal with every 10th meal. On Tuesdays, you can get double points for your meal. And if that’s not enough, you get email coupons out the wazoo.
- Qdoba has wheat tortillas. A small triumph in my battle against white grains.
So where do you stand in the Battle of Mexican-ish Fast-Casual?
