Set up just like Chipotle. However food is just okay. Steak was like beef jerky. Was out of at least 50% of their soda flavors. Nothing special about this place. I wish we would of went to Chipotle.

I stopped there to grab a quick bite on my lunch break from a class I was taking for my job. Great food. Several options and they moved you through pretty quick.

We were a bunch of friends unfamiliar with the city, but Qdoba provided a good sit down for us. The burritos was nothing too special, but very large in size, which was very fulfilling. A very student-ish place than a diner.

This outlet is pretty large for the amount of crowd it draws in. You will always find this place sparsely filled. This is surprising since the food is not bad at all. They have more variety than Chipotle next door and more space to sit...More

You can get free drinks with a work badge. Depending on which one you go to determines how fast you get out. Gets more crowded at noon. Chipolte is better but this place will do for edible chicken or steak. Just got brown rice.

I can't stand cilantro and they put it into rice and every salsa. The staff was unwilling or unable to provide any food without it. Yuch. I tossed my buritto in the trash. 8 bucks down the tube. Oh well, live and learn
