Though coveting thy neighbor's wife or underground sprinkler system is beyond the pale, longing for a mouthful of his cuisine is an understandable desire. Today's Groupon satisfies desires to eat from the table of our nation's neighbor: for $25, you get $50 toward Mexican catering from Qdoba Mexican Grill, valid at locations in Cordova and Southaven, Mississippi. Though catering prices vary depending on selections, dishes usually cost $8–$10 per person. Groupon-holders can pick up their orders in person or add delivery and setup for an additional $25.
Qdoba's burrito baristas hand-craft a catering menu of Mexican-inspired cuisine, customizable with a panoply of fresh ingredients. Appetites kowtow to Qdoba’s boxed lunches (recommended for fewer than 10 people), which load portable burritos with a choice of adobo-marinated grilled chicken or steak or fire-grilled veggies. Handmade tortilla chips tossed with lime and kosher salt tango with salsa verde, and a chocolate-chip cookie or double-fudge brownie placates tantrum-prone sweet teeth.
For more than 10 tummies, Qdoba’s caterers nourish large groups with the tortilla-free naked burrito bar, taco bar or hot nacho bar, which couples succulent chicken or seasoned beef with handmade chips slathered in the gooey flavor accents of the signature queso sauce—a three-cheese blend with roasted poblanos, tomatoes, and jalapeños.
