Everything Vegan at Qdoba (2022)

Qdoba is a restaurant like Chipotle, Uberrito, or Freebirds, and has that same assembly-line style burrito making magic. I love these places, and while my favorite is Freebirds they’re all absolutely wonderful and have tons of vegan options.

Not only is it pretty affordable, at least for eating out, but Qdoba gives vegans/vegetarians a discount — having the vegan (no-meat) entree saves you about 10% off your order at Qdoba, or if you get Vegan-meat (Impossible Meat) it’s about the same as the non-vegan meats.

Vegan Base Options at Qdoba:

  • Brown Rice
  • Cilantro Lime rice
  • Black Beans
  • Pinto Beans
  • Impossible Meat Crumble 

Sadly they don’t offer any refried beans currently — but hey beans are beans are beans, two types of beans is good enough for me.

Other Yummy Vegan Things at Qdoba:

  • Fajita Vegetables
  • Seasoned Potatoes

Don’t forget to get these tasty things as well, they make a burrito go from good to WOW!

Toppings/Add-ons/Salad Vegan Options at Qdoba:

  • Tortilla chips
  • Fajita Peppers
  • Pickled Jalapenos
  • Cilantro
  • Shredded Lettuce
  • Guacamole (It’s Free!)

They have a real salad too, but I’m talking about burrito addins here~

Vegan Sauces/Salsas at Qdoba:

  • Salsa Roja
  • Corn Salsa
  • Salsa Verde
  • Pico de Gallo
  • Jalapeno Verde
  • Roasted Tomato Salsa

They also have a few seasonal sauces/Salsas such as Cilantro lime sauce and Mango Salsa, so they’ll likely have one of them at your location.

So how does Qdoba look for a vegan?

Dang near perfect — especially with the recent addition of Impossible Meat to the menu.

If you want an extra-big meal like most places like Qdoba (such as freebirds or chipotle) you can ask for all of the things for free, as in both beans and both rices if you want. In fact, like I do, you can ask for extra on top of that if you really want to.

Uniquely though, at Qdoba I’ve heard they technically will give unlimited guacamole too, for free, but I haven’t tried that. But it’s always free (unlike at Chipotles/freebirds) to have a little at least like I get, so if you like Guac make sure to get it!

In short, Qdoba has one of the best vegan fast-food options right now.

Are Qdoba’s Chips Vegan-Friendly?

Yes they’re 100% Vegan-friendly — they’re fried in vegetable oil and don’t have any strange non-vegan stuff added to them.
