“Not a good experience”
Reviewed January 7, 2014 via mobile

Compared to other qdoba restaurants this was below our expectations. Surprisingly the food did it seem to have the same good taste as the food from other qdobas. The rice was soggy and the meat had little flavor.

“Good job, Staten Island Qdoba Grill -- but refill the hot sauce, please.”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

We had an early dinner tonight at Qdoba. The entrees we had -- the Ancho Chile BBQ Burrito and the Taco Salad with chicken were both very good. Very fresh ingredients, As others have said, the burrito was huge -- it barely fit into the aluminum foil wrapper. The salad was crispy and the guacamole (extra charge) was clearly fresly made. They have a loyalty program. For every 10 entrees you purchase, you get one free. If you aren't a member, just pick up a card at the cash register, have them scan it, and when you get a chance, go online and register it. The restaurant was very clean. Soft drinks are self-serve, and the iced tea is unsweetened. Fresh cut lemons and limes are available. The only problem we had tonight that when we looked for some Cholula hot sauce, the 6 or 8 bottles lined up on the self-serve table were uniformly empty. Probably would be a good idea for the staff to at least occasionally check them and replace the empty ones with full ones! Neatly lined up and empty isn't quite the same as full.
But that's a small issue, quickly fixed. The food is good, and the price is certainly reasonable.
We'll be back there soon.

“Queso Mondays”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

For quick mindless "Mexican" food this is a good stop. The pulled pork meat selection is my favorite. Chips and queso was my staple there. Friendly service. Never had a bad experience there.

“Better than expected!”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

The restaurant was clean, the staff were friendly and quick. I had quesedillas and my companion had a burrito. Both dishes were very good. The burrito was so big it couldn't be finished. We're definitely going to try it again.
