Adiós Qdoba, but is anybody really upset about it?
As some of you may already have heard through the grapevine, the Qdoba on 3303 M St, a Georgetown classic (or something), has closed–for good.
Yes, we are all incredibly heart-broken and lost without our half-priced Tuesdays, but it must be acknowledged that Qdoba is the ugly step-sister of the far superior Chipotle. It would be safe to assume that the sub-par burrito experience most likely contributed to its downfall.
The Georgetown Qdoba is certainly not the first to go–according to Forbes, this past summer Jack in the Box Inc. made the decision to close 10 percent of its underperforming Qdoba Mexican Grill restaurants by September 29, 2013. However, the company also said they will be replacing those closed Qdoba restaurants with approximately 60-70 new ones at different locations this year.
If for some reason you are still distressed about not having access to mediocre Mexican food (or are just feeling sentimental), there are sixteen other Qdoba restaurants around DC for you to explore (and feel dissatisfied with).
