never ever go to Qdoba mexican grill, they are fucking gross, and the ruined my stomach one day.
On this, we agree. Qdoba is essentially a bad Chipotle- making it even worse for the angry anti-Chipotle mob gathering in the thread, and a disappointment to me. I got well acquainted with my toilet the night I ate Qdoba.
I don't care for the portions at most authentic Taquerias out here in the suburbs, but I will agree that the Mexican food I grab in Grand Central Market, or really anywhere in Los Angeles, is around 100 times better than Chipotle. It is just that in the suburb I live in, prices are hiked up as people see a dime-sized taco as a delicacy.
I suppose I was just comparing Chipotle to the other chains that spring to mind when one says Mexican fast food (e.g. Del Taco and Taco Bell, at least out here).
EDIT: You know, this just sprung to my mind. Anyone that ever visits Vancouver should absolutely NOT dine at Steamrollers. Imagine Chipotle, but you literally watch them take the food out of cans and ready-made salad bags. Now imagine that they don't season any of it, raise the prices, and serve it to you in a soggy tortilla. And to think, people were lining up for that s***, it just supports ShyGuy's claim that fast food can really differ by location.
