Qdoba versus Chipotle

>> Thursday, March 31, 2011

Ever wonder which restaurant serves the better burrito, Qdoba or Chipotle?

I wondered the same thing for years, when a co-worker of mine though we should apply scientific theory to this important question.  So we did...

The Test: Order the same burrito from each restaurant (with medium sauce, black beans).  One person cuts the burritos in half, sticks a toothpick in the one they know the brand, then the other person will choose to either switch the toothpicks or not (while the other person is not looking).  This ensures that neither person know which is which until it is revealed at the end.

One person remarked prior to the test that Chipotle is better in some meats than others, so we decided to do the test for all meats.

Here are the results:

CHICKEN WINNER: Chipotle 2 - 0

PORK WINNER: Qdoba 3 - 1
MarkQdoba
JamieChipotle
PadamQdoba
RianQdoba

STEAK WINNER: Chipotle 2 - 0
MarkChipotle
JamieChipotle

SHREDDED BEEF WINNER: Chipotle 2 - 0
MarkChipotle
JamieChipotle

It's over, Chipotle with the overall victory 3-1! It's worth a trip to Qdoba though if you are in the mood for pork (or craving their Queso sauce), otherwise, Chipotle is the place to go.   Also to note, the burritos were priced within 5% of each other, so cost was not a factor in this comparison.
