A fast-casual chain that had little-to-no presence on Long Island a few years back, is finding its footing — Qdoba has opened its fourth Long Island location, in Massapequa. The chain also operates in East Meadow, Plainview and Farmingdale.
Customers can build their own Mexican meals — burritos, tacos, burrito bowls, salads, quesadillas, nachos — with proteins such as grilled steak, slow-braised pulled pork and slow-smoked beef brisket; then add rice, beans, cheese blends, pickled jalapeños, guacamole, salsas and sauces.
Or, dive right in to signature bowls (all are less than $10) including chicken tacos, an Impossible fajita burrito or the newly introduced Mexican cauliflower mash with chicken.
Delivery is available via DoorDash, UberEats, Grubhub and Postmates.
Owners (and brothers) Jeff and John Froccaro of the Burger Brothers Restaurant Group also run Qdoba locations in Bushwick, Brooklyn, and Fresh Meadows, Queens. The duo plan to venture further out into Suffolk County with Hauppauge (670 Motor Parkway) and Bay Shore (331 Main Street) locations. The Froccaros also own more than 30 Burger Kings across the Island.
Qdoba is at 4870 Sunrise Highway, Massapequa. It's open Sundays to Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and on Fridays and Saturdays until 11 p.m., 516-590-7450; qdoba.com
