Queso Hungry, Grab Some Chips!

Ok, that might be the best or worst title I've come up with, but every one loves queso, right?

Years and years ago I worked at a clothing store that shall remain nameless (sister store to my initials), and right around the corner was a Qdoba. I would stop by almost every day during my break and pick up their taco salad. I was a very picky eater back then so I never ventured far from the trusty taco salad in it's light, crunchy taco shell bowl.

Fast forward a couple of years, I was living in Sioux Falls South Dakota. Our restaurant selections were somewhat slim, but we had a Qdoba. This is when I was first introduced to the burrito and queso! I remember stopping by for a side of queso and chips for a snack and that queso made all my problems go away.

Now, there is a Qdoba just down the street from my house! My Dad and I were on our own for dinner one night, and since I really didn't feel like cooking, I suggested we check out their location in Brooklyn Center. If you're familiar with the area at all, it's where the old Brookdale Mall was located. The city has done a fantastic job rebuilding the area and adding in some great restaurants and shops.

My dad had the tacos and I went for the burrito with Mango Salsa and we shared some queso and chips.

My dad is more of a salsa eater, but every time he said he was done eating I'd see him sneak another chip and dig in to that queso.

Do you ever go somewhere and order the steak taco/burrito, but all you find is pieces that are full of griz and it just turns you off from your meal. That is one thing I didn't have in my burrito! You can tell that they take a little more time in prepping their meat so you can enjoy the whole meal!

The staff was so friendly. They accidentally put a salsa on my burrito that I didn't ask for and insisted on making me a new one. I would have eaten the burrito regardless, but knowing that they wanted to make sure I was happy with my meal was really wonderful and top notch customer service. It's the small things that will bring back the customers!

  1. I haven't been to that area in forever but I do want to check it out and see how it looks.

  2. We used to have a Qdoba in my building and they would cater our lunches. SO dangerous
