Reviews – Qdoba

As a busy weight watchers girl, I am always looking for places that I can grab a quick bite to eat without going point crazy. Qdoba has been a lifesaver for me. When I started the points system, the only place that I knew I could count on for a low-point meal on the run was Subway. Their sandwiches are quick and easy; and you can find a Subway almost anywhere. The problem for me is that I LOVE spices and while Subway is convenient, it is not spicy (hot or otherwise). As I was looking for other options, I came across Qdoba’s website. They have a great nutritional calculator, which is perfect for the weight watchers crowd. As it turns out, my naked steak or chicken taco salads (I have mine with pico de gallo, corn and bean salsa and habanero salsa – without cheese, sour cream, guacamole or dressing) are fewer points than any of the sandwiches I was having. *Cue the halo lights and singing angels* If you have the salad with grilled veggies instead of meat, the point value is even lower. They have several items on their menu that can be modified to be weight watcher friendly, I suggest playing with the calculator to see what works for you:

If you have any suggestions for healthy, on-the-go options, please feel free to share.

  1. The only thing I can stand at McDonald’s is the large unsweetened ice tea for $1.06, which I get here in hot, hot Florida almost every day. Love your blog.

  2. Hope for the Hopefuls

    I am a mexican food freak and the spicier the better. We have a Qdaba here in down but I have never visited. I think I need to now. Thanks for the information. I have also found that Salsaritas is a good place to get a mexican food fix while eating healthy. I normally get a Taco Salad (with out the taco shell), shredded pork, all the veggies and black beans. I use the hot salsa and Pico as my dressing. Very low in fat and fresh to boot.
