Qdoba is the opiate of the masses

    A Qdoba recently opened in my fair city. Went there tonight as a second-choice after the restaurant my family intended to go to had a 30-minute wait.

    As I walked in and tried very hard to figure what the difference was between Qdoba and Chipotle (Qdoba has a marginally better menu. The food is EXACTLY the same), something caught the corner of my eye.

    It looked like a Communist hammer-and-sickle. My first thought was, OK, Qdoba's the latest to use Communist imagery in some sort of tongue-in-cheek promotion.

    But it wasn't that at all. It's part of the corporate logo.


    Not an exact match, but not far off.

    All power to the Soviets! Qdoba is order, Chipotle is chaos!

    I don't find Qdoba and Chipotle exactly the same. Chipotle is better.

    And I think the hammer and sickle look sort of like a Q. The Q came first, so Qdoba is OK.

    Q's are supposed to round off. Don't be fooled, this is Che Guevara's doing!

    I'm willing to listen to an argument as to why either is better, because I sure don't see it.

    Every last ingredient I had in my burrito tonight at Qdoba is exactly the same as the same one I can get at Chipotle. I could see a difference in the two if the tortilla, sauce, cheese or meat was different, but they're not. The only difference I saw was in Qdoba's menu.

    I'm not a food snob, but the quality of ingredients that Qdoba and similar restaurants seems incredibly inferior to what Chipotle uses for the same price.

    Um, gosh I hope you are kidding. I don't see blue font...but....

    It's a Q. Plain and simple.

    Communists have poor penmanship.

    Chipotle's pork is WAY better than any meat you can get at Qdoba. So is the rice. So is the guacamole.

    It's not even close, really.

    I do like Qdoba, but Chipotle is much better.

    But Qdoba does have a decent margarita, as I've noted on another thread.

    Chipotle is better, that's all I have to say.

    Ya think?

    Jesus Christ, comrades, get with the program.

    I don't do guacamole, so I'll take your word for it. I had steak, which was about the same as the steak I had at Chipotle. My experience with the rice was exactly the same at both and I'm a rice snob.

    Exactly the same ... and I inherited better taste buds than you. :D

    As soon as you pull the tongue into it, it gets Freudian.
