A tortilla makes a handy mouse pad, an acceptable patch for stiff denim jeans, and, if you draw a face on it, an ideal companion on fishing trips. But there are many other uses for it, as today's Groupon proves: for $6, you get $12 worth of quick, tasty, south-of-the-border fare from Qdoba Mexican Grill locations in Dayton and Beavercreek.
As with rainbows, nations, and Model T's, burritos contain a rag-tag team of savories that are more robust combined than apart. Qdoba embraces Henry Ford's innovative ideas with an all-you-can-choose buffet of fresh ingredients ready to be stuffed into burritos, tacos, and more through a superfast assembly line of professionals. Choose the protein packer of your choice from pulled pork, grilled steak or chicken, and shredded or ground beef, or opt out of the meats and head straight to the beans. Simmer over the option of slow-cooked black or pinto beans before you top your treat with any of five unique salsas and four original sauces. Taste the gooey flavor accents of the signature queso sauce (a three-cheese blend with roasted poblanos, tomatoes, and jalapeños, or try a smoky poblano pesto made with roasted peppers, green chiles, cilantro, garlic almonds and pine nuts.
If you don't want to build your own, try Qdoba's signature burritos, which include the fajita-ranchera burrito with chicken, grilled onions, red peppers, and a piquant ranchera sauce ($6.29), and the grilled-veggie burrito with zucchini, yellow squash, and red peppers sautéed in a garlic-herb seasoning ($5.79). Order a grilled quesadilla stuffed with chicken, two cheeses and pico de gallo ($6.39) or a tower of nachos topped with pork, cheese, beans, sour cream, and salsa ($6.49).
