Restaurant details

This place is essentially across from the Univ. of Wisconsin Smith Hall Dormitory. It is open until 3:30 a.m. many nights. If you need a late night meal and you are nearby and don't want to walk far or look for another place in a town you don't know, this fits the bill. We had burritos, which were huge. They were made to order. You say what you want, like "not so much rice", "black beans" (rather than pinto beans), "mild salsa" (rather than spicy). You can get them wrapped like we are used to, but they are huge, about 3-4 inches across, or the fillings can be placed on top of a tortilla on a plate. These were very filling. The price was right. What more can one say when one comes into town late and hungry and really wants to "crash" instead of hunt for food.

This Qdoba had the same good quality mexican good I've seen at the Qdoba in my home city. There was a miscommunication with one of the dishes, however.

For big burritos this place is the bomb. It just does not get any better. Their other fare is pretty good too. The chips are baked fresh daily. They make your food to order and most of the time they are faster than the big name fast food chains. They have a little card system and you can earn free food. I try to avoid going during peak hours, noon and diner, a little earlier or later will get you in and out faster. The one on University is my favorite, followed by Mineral Point. Go, you won't regret it.

We all know what Qdoba, Chipotle, and similar places do -- they make big burritos full of rice and beans. It is filling if not tasty.

My complaint about all these places is that they put cilantro in almost everything and I DON"T like it!!!! Only the soft tacos have not cilantro, so that is my choice.

otherwise, chain-store "mexicano" chow.

Service is good and the chairs are heavy...
