The coupon reads: "Buy any entree for only $6 -- use as many times as you'd like between now and July 8th."
And of course, the fine print: "Limit one offer, per guest, per visit. Coupon may be used multiple times. Valid only at Denver, Colorado Springs and Boulder locations. Regular upcharges still apply. Cannot be combined with any other offer or Rewards program. No cash value."
And how to get this magical, fast-casual, food-hall pass?
Like Qdoba on Facebook, click on the little envelope icon with "Get Offer" next to it, and an e-mail will be sent your inbox with the coupon in it, ready to be used as many times as you like between now and July 8, 2012, when the coupon expires.
Print it out or just do what we all do these days: Show the staff the coupon on your phone. They'll take it from there.
And what can you get with this coupon? Any entrée for $6, including a bowl of Qdoba's Mexican Gumbo, a tasty hybrid of Southern gumbo and tortilla soup; the summer-only Mango Salad; and my personal favorite Qdoba dish, the handmade tortilla chips with sides of 3-Cheese Queso and guacamole.
Although Qdoba has gone through many incarnations over the years -- it started as Zuma, then became Z-TECA Mexican Grill, then Qdoba, then was acquired by Jack in the Box -- it's always emphasized freshly prepared Mexican food with quality ingredients. If you are a regular Qdoba customer, the coupon is a good reason to eat there more often. And if you haven't yet been to Qdoba, this is the time to give it a try.
