Not exactly authentic, but still good!.
Yeah, I go through phases with Qdoba. I either crave it and eat there like five times a week, or I absolutely cannot stand it. The reasons I like it are that their food is 90% of the time fresh, hot, and delicious. I especially like their barbeque burrito -- the sauce is nice and spicy and just a little sweet. Their rice is usually nice and fresh, with cilantro and lime mixed in. They are prompt in their service and though a little expensive it's not that bad. My problem is that sometimes their rice is clumpy; their chicken cold; their servers skimpy on the ingredients, etc etc. I mean, it's fast food, so really it's a great deal for that. It's best to go when they're really busy so that the food has been turned over a bunch.
