Frequent diners at Qdoba come for the eatery’s signature flavors, but they may not know how far the staff travels to obtain them. Qdoba’s staff visits various parts of Mexico on a regular basis in search of flavor combinations that later enhance the shop’s burritos, quesadillas, and taco salads. Among these blends are ancho-chili barbecue, gumbo accented with cilantro rice, and the three-cheese queso, a creation that took 47 tries to perfect. Along with sought-after flavors, Qdoba’s staff members pride themselves on their painstaking preparation of fresh ingredients, from fire-roasted tomatoes to mouth-watering poblano peppers.

Taqueria Mixteca’s spice-wielding culinarians shepherd taste buds on a tour of Mexico's distinctive flavorscape with a menu brimming with tortilla-centric spreads, meaty entrees, and vegetarian-friendly eats. A starter of nachos maya paves the way for heartier main courses ($4.95), such as the quesadillas ($2.50–$4.99), chimichangas ($7.50), or fajitas flaunting marinated beef ($9.95), chicken ($9.95), or shrimp ($10.95). Satiate shell cravings without licking peanut casings or ninja turtles with a hefty burrito ($4-6) or taco, which can come stuffed with your choice of meat, including chicken ($1.95) and fried pork ($1.95). Herbivores hungry enough to graze on the tassels of nearby mariachi players can sharpen their incisors on the meatless taco salad ($4.75) or cheese enchilada platter ($5.75). Conclude nosh fests with a toothsome slice of flan ($3) or tres leches cake ($2.75).
