Qdoba Vegan FAQ

Is Qdoba Impossible vegan?

Yes, the Impossible meat now served at Qdoba is vegan. Choose one of Impossible choices straight off the menu or substitute Impossible Meat into any item to come up with your own vegan creation.

Does Qdoba have vegan cheese?

Qdoba does not serve vegan cheese, at least not yet. With the recent addition of Impossible Meat it’s not out of the question to think Qdoba could end up serving a vegan cheese option sometime in the near future.

Is Qdoba’s new Chile Creme and Jalapeno Verde Sauces vegan?

No. According to the Qdoba’s Allergen guide, the chile creme contains egg and the jalapeno verde sauce has both dairy and egg.

Our Picks

Ryan’s Pick: Burrito Bowl with Cilantro Rice, both beans, Impossible Meat, Fajita Veggies, Fiery Habanero, Roasted Chile Corn Salsa, Pickled Jalapenos, Lettuce, Tortilla Strips and Guacamole.

Then, if I’m really splurging I’ll get Tortilla Chips and use them as scoops for my bowl. Delicious.

Jen’s Pick: The last time I ate at Qdoba they did NOT have the Impossible meat available–that’s what I want to try! What I did was simply a burrito bowl with cilantro rice, pinto beans, salsa, shredded lettuce and chips on the side to dip.
