Qdoba Mexican Grill® Sets Out to Prove to Chicagoans That Everything is Tastier With Queso

August 30, 2011

Between the Italian beef and deep-dish pizza, Chicago is home to some of the world's tastiest creations. Even though queso is not currently at the top of the list when it comes to Chicagoans' favorite savory treats, Qdoba Mexican Grill® and up-and-coming Chicago comedian Joey Dundale aim to change that. Joey is driving around the Windy City in a one-of-a-kind food truck tricked out by Qdoba to prove that queso makes everything tastier. Unlike other kitchens-on-wheels, the Queso Quest Truck serves only one thing – cheese, specifically Qdoba's 3-Cheese Queso.

Traveling in the Queso Quest Truck, Joey will visit iconic Chicago restaurants and landmarks, such as Wrigleyville on Aug. 30 and Soldier Field on Sept. 2, to taste-test new and imaginative queso creations. Chicagoans may join Joey on his quest by visiting the Queso Quest website at to follow his adventures, suggest foods to make tastier with queso, or to grab a coupon to try queso for themselves.

"I'm just one man, with a tricked-out, queso-filled truck and a big dream," said Joey. "I'll demonstrate to everyone from Navy Pier to Wrigley Field that I love Qdoba queso and believe that it should be the next great Chicagoland food obsession. I challenge all of Chicago to join in my quest to find out what I already know... queso is delicious!"
