Top Five Fast-Food Restaurants That Should Start Giving Free Extras

Qdoba is taking a stand, according to its website. The second-stringer Mexican fast-casual chain is doing a crazy -- except more like business savvy -- new promotion involving free queso dip, which is one of the smartest things any chain could do, ever. Yep, Qdoba is giving up up-charging for extra goodies like guacamole, sauces, fajita veggies and both of its hot cheese sauces, offering a flat price per entrée, which means that customers can order burritos smothered in free Queso Diablo -- and Chipotle just got pwned.

Here are five other joints that should take a cue from Qdoba and start giving free extras too. Take a hint, places that aren't Qdoba, because people really like free things, especially hot cheese.
