Colorado has its fair share of chains rolling through the state.

Whether it’s former fast food giants like Quiznos, which have fallen from grace after getting their start in Denver, or new chains like Cava taking the state by storm, there are certainly many layers to this topic.

However, a recent survey from FinanceBuzz seemed to answer one question: What’s the favorite fast food restaurant in each state?

For Colorado, it seems we have a favorite that isn’t talked about enough. Plus, you can trace its roots back to the Centennial State.

Qdoba has been called Colorado’s favorite fast food chain

It seems Qdoba has become Colorado’s favorite fast food chain. To find out, FinanceBuzz used both the number of restaurant locations and search popularity to find the most popular places.

At first that may seem like a bit of a shock. Sure, Qdoba is popular, but is it? That popular?

But when I think about it, I don’t think I’ve ever heard anyone say anything bad about Qdoba. Based on that, it starts to make perfect sense.

Qdoba is a bit of a hometown hero

As many people know, Chipotle was founded in Denver. I know, a big shock.

However, some may not know that Qdoba also opened in Denver in 1995, just two years after its biggest competitor.

You can still go to the original Qdoba today on Grant Street and Sixth Avenue. However, you can visit 82 locations in Colorado.

All this said, the fact that both Qdoba and Chipotle opened in Colorado and are direct competitors to each other is extremely interesting.

What do you think of all this? Is Qdoba your favorite chain in Colorado? Do you think Chipotle is better? Or is it something completely different?
