qdoba-food-order Since I’ve been in NYC this year, one of my favorite discoveries has been the newly launched Mexican grill, Qdoba. Marlene and I dined back in late January at store #550 located at 12 W. 23rd St. How the hell do I possibly know the date and exact address of the burrito shop that I had a quick dinner in over 2 months ago?
Great question!
Quick answer, Qdoba has a fantastic rewards program with a great tag line, “The more you eat, the more you earn”. LOL! I love that one, but not as much as the motto they have on posters in store, “Frequent biter miles”.
To the left, what you’re seeing is a copy of my order from today’s online experience requesting delivery from “my Qdoba” store. There’s actually one closer to where I’m staying on W. 12th St, however their delivery area doesn’t include this section of the City. No problems, however.
If you’d have seen the original order, you might have asked what army I was planning to feed, but I got a little greedy seeing all the control I had in the ordering process. Even what I did send through should be enough for about 3 meals, but that’s always a good thing 😉
With the order having been submitted, I did receive call from the restaurant rather quickly. My immediate thought was they were just confirming the order (ordering online has had that happen to me in the past.) Instead of confirmation, they apparently had to re-request my credit card number to get payment for the order.
Not a big deal. In fact, I even added an order of chips and guacamole to the delivery, so I guess I’ve got enough food for the next several days!
Now waiting for their maiden delivery. Oh, forgot to share that their online ordering system allows me to choose the time frame for delivery. And that was probably the weakest part of the process as I had to choose a new time frame since they were at “maximum order capacity” for the time I originally ordered.
And the only reason for that being the weakest point, is that I had to pull out my credit card and re-enter my card info. And that makes me think they are not saving my card info, which would make repeat orders much, much nicer. Not the end of the world, however.
Posting this up now, and will add comment updates to share the rest of the process in a bit. Bon apetit!

One thought to “Qdoba food delivery in NYC”

  • James D Kirk

    Okay! Food has been delivered. The rather unfriendly delivery man must have scooched into the building with someone coming in. Poor form on the other tenants part, and even poorer from for the delivery. What does it matter, you ask? Well, living on the 6th floor allows us time to “get to the door” when we know they are coming up with the food. And this just makes for better interactions with the delivery person (especially considering that I had a pen at the ready in case the delivery man didn't have one; and of course, he didn't, however, since I had to run to the door I failed to bring the pen and had to go back for it 🙁 )As to the food itself? Well, obviously, I enjoy Qdoba. This will have been my 9th time having food from them, and other than one episode where I had to beg for limes to put into the coronas, I've never had a challenge.Opting to enjoy the taco platter first, I've put the chicken burrito to rest in the fridge, so that will be dinner (and likely breakfast since those things are really big!) You'll notice on the copy of my original order, I chose three tacos, one hard shell and two soft. Had the food preparer opted to put the hard taco shell between the 2 soft, I'm guessing there would not have been quite the “adventure” in separating the soft shells. Not a big deal, but still. Oh, and the hard shell, well, I suppose the steam envelope that was created by the plastic plate and clear plastic dome lid allowed it to not be quite so hard when I did eat them.All in all, the taco sampler was actually quite good, and I was pleasantly surprised with Qdoba's version of a vegetarian taco: black beans and their white rice all held together with some cheese. A nice sampling of their salsa sauces made consuming the three tacos quite a nice journey.Oh, and Qdoba's home made taco chips and guacamole that I ordered extra were a definite requirement (and in an unofficial survey, Marlene and I are pretty sure Qdoba is one of the least expensive places in NYC to get guacamole. Always a good thing!) So, if you're near a Qdoba, get yourself a rewards card, get it signed up online, and start ordering up!
