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 proved by today’s Groupon for quick, tasty, south-of-the-border fare at Qdoba in Williamsburg, Virginia. Choose between the following options:
- For $6, you get $12 worth of south-of-the-border fare.
- For $37, you get a hot-taco-bar catering order for 10 for pick-up (a $75 value).<p>
Qdoba catalyzes culinary creativity through an all-you-can-choose buffet of fresh ingredients ready to be stuffed into burritos, tacos, and salads by a super-speedy staff of meal-wizards. Guests choose one of three power-packed proteins before simmering over the option of cumin-simmered black or pinto beans. Garnishing gurus top treats with any of five unique salsas and four original sauces, including a three-cheese queso, smoky poblano, and hand-smashed guacamole. Diners can avoid the stress of decision making or déjà vu of choose-your-own-adventure novels past by taking a pop at one of Qdoba’s five signature burritos, such as a 100% vegetarian grilled-vegetable burrito brimming over with grilled zucchini, singed squash, and red peppers ($6.39), or a chicken-crowded ancho-chili barbecue burrito, whose all-natural fowl may hog-step and hoofer with fiery habanero sauce, mild-mannered pico de gallo, or ennui-soaked corn ($6.49).
Like an overly generous mother or a recently unemployed stork, Qdoba may supply fresh food for meetings and get-togethers through their hot-taco-bar catering package. Epicureans can engage their instincts by slathering a choice of adobo steak or chicken with three succulent sauces; coating them in cheese, sour cream or guacamole; and sprinkling shredded post-its on top as the pièce de résistance. The bar arrives bearing both crispy shell and flour tortillas to bundle braised meats and veggies in, and provides serving utensils for all 10 soon-to-be-stuffed taco samplers.
