Qdoba Review 3/28 – Fishers

It’s been a while since I’ve been to this Qdoba, but if I were looking for quality service and nachos, I would definitely come and visit this one again.  Although I did have to wait about 30 seconds for someone to start making my nachos (while I was the only one in line and it seemed like there were several workers just staring at me), I was greeted promptly.  The small wait was more than worth it as they piled on all of the ingredients without being stingy.  Everyone was quite friendly, professional, and seemed like they were happy to be there.  I was even helped to my seat with all the food (without even asking), as I had ordered for others dining with me as well.  Truly, a very enjoyable dining experience.

Qdoba Review 12/27 – Noblesville

Wow, this Qdoba was packed today!  I stood in line for about 10-15 minutes before getting my order at a little after 1:00p.m.  This was likely do to all the shoppers out the first Saturday after Christmas at this busy mall location.  There were only 3 people behind the counter actually making the meals which resulted in quite a wait.  Despite being very busy, the staff remained quite upbeat and pleasant.  They also had someone cleaning tables and floors regularly, which helped people to be able to have a seat.

The nachos were really well made today with a generous amount of toppings which made them quite tasty.

Going through the line at Qdoba, the workers were quite friendly today.  They also layered on plenty of toppings that I had picked out.  Everything was quite fresh when I sat down to eat my nachos layered with black beans, mild salsa, queso, lite sour cream, rice, and shredded cheese.  This is definitely a good combo!

The one complaint that I have about the meal today was that the soda fountain machine must have ran out of syrup on the Diet Coke.  When I got a refill, I was shocked with the awful taste of carbonation without any of the Diet Coke syrup.

Today, I got the Vegetarian Nachos.  There were good overall, however the mild salsa was a bit runny today and made liquid puddles on top of the nachos.  Fortunately it did not settle down into the bottom and get the chips soggy.  Mostly, the liquid stayed on top of the cheese.  Not the prettiest presentation, but they still had a good taste.  The vegetarian nachos consisted of tortilla chips, black beans, queso, rice, mild salsa, shredded cheese, and sour cream.  I think some of chips that were used were from the bottom of the container because some were extremely salty.  Others had the perfect amount of salt on them though.  I typically really enjoy the tortilla chips from here.

McAlister’s Deli – Fishers

October 28, 2008

Restaurant: McAlister’s Deli
Location: Fishers, IN
Address: 8355 East 116th Street, Suite 101  Fishers, IN 46038
Menu: McAlister’s Menu
Type: Deli
Loyalty Program: None Known
Today’s Meal: Taco Salad, Soft Drink
Cost: Less than $10

Today I dined at McAlister’s Deli.  McAlister’s Deli is known for the really large potatoes available with a variety of different toppings as well as their sweet tea.  Nearly everyone I have dined with here will attest to the goodness of the sweet tea.  (I do not like tea, so I cannot offer up my opinion.)  

It’s one of my favorite places to get a taco salad.  Mind you, it’s not a traditional taco salad with the shell shaped like a bowl or anything, and nothing about it really tastes Mexican.  It has a bed of lettuce with some tortilla chips crushed below, and then they use their chili (which you can also get vegetarian chili to make this taco salad entirely vegetarian), cheese, tomatoes, sour cream, and black olives on the top.  It also comes with Jalapenos, but I leave those off.  On the side is extra tortilla chips as well as a little bit of salsa.  Quite yummy!

In the past, the staff at McAlister’s has been very on top of drink refills.  You see, you go to the counter to order (they give you your drink while you’re up there), and then you go find a seat and put the order number they give you on the table.  They bring you your meal when it is prepared, and then typically they come around from time-to-time to see if you would like more to drink (they also have you take your lid and straw before they take your cup, which I REALLY like, more sanitary).  This time they never came around once to see if I would like more to drink.  Hopefully next time I go there they are more on-top of the drink refills!

Today’s Meal – Vegetarian 3-Cheese Nachos, Diet Coke
Cost – Under $8
Type – Fast Mexican Food
Loyalty Program – Qdoba Card

For dinner this evening, I got the Vegetarian 3-Cheese nachos and a Diet Coke.  The nachos were loaded with their 3-Cheese Queso, Rice, Mild Salsa, Black Beans, Shredded Cheese, and Lite Sour Cream.  This is a place where you go through the line and they make your meal right in front of you, adding ingredients as you go down the line, similar to Subway.  Today, the meal was very good, and they were very generous with all the toppings.  Everything tasted very fresh as well.  The pico de Gallo (which they also call their ‘Mild’ Salsa) is very good.  It has the perfect blend of tomatoes, onion, and cilantro.  The Queso is a definite winner as well.  This is always one of my favorite places to get nachos.  If you go there for a burrito, expect to leave feeling very full…their burritos are huge!
