Qdoba, Moe's or Chipotle

    Why is it I seem to be the only one who finds her mesmerizing in Casino Royale, too?

    As far as the thread, I haven't tried Moe's or Qdoba since there aren't any close to me, but I was looking back at receipts and bank records for 2006 this week and I averaged around 5.2 Chipotle burritos per week. Used to love the chicken for price and not sure why else, but after switching to the steak and carnitas, the chicken is practically tasteless.

    I'm kinda pissed they raised their prices in order to get humanely-raised meat, but Chipotle will still keep me alive when I don't want to cook.

    Never heard of Moe's.

    I've been to both Qdoba and Chipotle in the last couple of weeks, and I'm giving a slight nod to Chipotle right now.

    I like their chicken fajita burritos with the mild green tomatillo salsa. Chipotle's meat seems a bit less gristly than Qdoba's and the rice is a little better thanks to that splash of cilantro they throw in. The hot salsa at Chipotle, though, sent me running to the can within two hours for a steamer only Cleveland could appreciate. Not fun.

    Never even heard of Qdoba. Moe's wasn't bad. Chipotle was some of the worst Mexican I've ever had, though it's not like I'm a true expert. In terms of chains, Baja Fresh whips them all. Great stuff.

    Though there are a ton of places around areas with a lot of illegal immigration, like where I've been living the past few years, that are better than all of them.

    Chipotle is No. 1, but Qdoba is also very good. Moe's is OK in a pinch, but not on the level of the other two. I'm about three hours away from the nearest Chipotle and I miss it a bunch.

    I actually had Qdoba 2 nights ago. I really liked it but I heard Chipotle is much better.

    Chipotle is number one. Wish they offered tomatoes as a topping without them being in a salsa, but everything else is great. I'm surprised by all the Qdoba love, though. We don't have them here, but I've eaten there in a couple of cities and wasn't impressed. Moe's is better.

    Never had Moe's. Qdoba once and it sucked. Chipotle generally sucks. Baja Fresh is fantastic, but still not a good substitute for the real thing. Here's a hint: the real thing will never have tomatillo salsa or cilantro. And it will come from someone who doesn't speak English.

    And they will not ask if you want hormone-free meat or fat-free sour cream or soy cheese. The only thing they will ask is red or green.

    Have you seen the Mexican restaurants where I live? Or the Salvadoran, Brazillian, or Guatemalan places for that matter. Heck, just about all the restaurants near my place have people who can't speak too much English taking my order. Those who speak none are in the back cooking.

    Mmm ... that made my dinner plans for tonight ... that's all they ask at the Rosa Maria's up the street. (Birdscribe will concur :))
