Qdoba, Bailey’s Crossroads, VA

Yeah, I played Ultra-Zone Laser Tag.

Yeah, I went to Qdoba.

Yeah, I got a burrito.

You gotta problem with that?

I’ve been to Qdoba exactly three times in my life, and each time I’ve gotten a Vegetarian Burrito ($5.89) with whatever vegetables happen to catch your eye – two out of the three times I’ve gotten black beans instead of pintos (although this time I tried the pintos), and I prefer the black beans. There’s plenty of guacamole, cheese, salsas, little squirts of things, etc. – this is indeed vegetarian (including the tortilla), and you could potentially construct a vegan version as well (vegans, you might find this page useful), but don’t fool yourself into thinking it’s health food: a fully loaded Vegetarian Burrito weighs in at almost two pounds, pushes 1,500 calories, and contains almost 3 grams (!) of sodium.

But there’s a reason I’ve gotten this three times: it tastes good.  And if you’re a vegetarian with a craving for fast-food Tex-Mex, you can do a lot worse than the Vegetarian Burrito at Qdoba (if, and only if, you understand the peripherals surrounding it).

I was handed a “buy one get one free” coupon that needed to be redeemed in one week, and discarded it – this is a once-in-a-while guilty pleasure for me only, just as it should be.
