Qdoba rolls out two new cheesy items, just in time for Queso for a Kiss

Categories: A Real Deal

Fast-casual operations took off fast in Colorado. Two years after Steve Ells opened the first Chipotle at 1644 East Evans Avenue, Qdoba Mexican Grill got its start here -- originally as Zuma, then Z-Teca. Today the company is owned by Jack in the Box, and if it hasn't grown to the 1,500-plus locations stature of Chipotle, it's still going strong.

And unlike Chipotle, Qdoba serves queso. In fact, today the chain is rolling out two new variations: Queso Diablo and Queso Verde.

The newly remodeled Denny's in Englewood opened its doors at 9 a.m. today, inviting diners to take advantage of free specials, including Grand Slam breakfasts. Judging from the lack of crowds earlier this morning, you've got a good chance of getting a free burger at lunch (offered to the first 25 customers who arrive at noon) or free entree at dinner (for the first 25 customers who come in at 6 p.m.). In the meantime, you can get a free look at the "locally-inspired" design of this Denny's in these photos by Brandon Marshall.

Eat up! It's for a good cause -- and the coffee's free.

The shop did a big business that day. But the public service didn't end there: Today this Dunkin' Donuts will celebrate its grand opening with deals for both customers and the community at large.

Margarita Mondays at Adelitas could pack the place.
Mexican joints across town have discovered the joys of Taco Tuesdays, which fill restaurants on a slow night of the week -- and generally tend to fill cash registers, too, because while regulars fill up on bargain tacos, their bar tabs keep growing.

When he opened Adelitas Cocina Y Cantina last May, longtime restaurateur Brian Rossi realized there would be some slow days, and he was quick to introduce his own version of Taco Tuesday. And now he's figured out how to move things along on Monday, too: with two-for-one margaritas all day and night.
