I am not sure what was different here - but nothing to write home about. comparing it with the more famous cousin - Chipotle, I would advise you to walk over the street and eat there.

Very satisfied. One of the cleanest Qdoba's that you will find. The line is always to the door but somehow they get you through quick and easy. Samples of anything I wanted . . . I could of filled up on the sample alone. The managers are awesome.

The restaurant is set up to quickly serve as many people as possible. The menu has a great deal of variety and healthier options. The chicken nachos were delicious. I was amazed at the number of defective burritos in existence. The staff was tossing them into the trash left and right (literally, the garbage cans were left and right of... 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

Yes people, it is a chain. But should that stop us? No. It is a great place to eat. I have eaten at Qdoba for years and I am never disappointed. I want folks to know, however, this Qdoba stands out above all the rest. The staff at this Qdoba is better than any other Qdoba. The manager knows what... More

My wife and I love Mexican food and we also like Qdoba, but the visit we had yesterday was great! I normally get one certain thing when we go, but yesterday I switched to tacos. When I did, I wasn't too sure how I wanted them but the staff was quick to point out the differences in the salsas and... More

Is Qdoba completely authentic Mexican? No, it's essentially a fast food type chain, but with that said the food is delicious and the Oakland location also has a great little bar in the upstairs area. I get the Queso Burrito every time and i'm never disappointed, and both the food and drinks are pretty cheap. If you need a quick,... More
