FORT MEADE – Soldiers and families at Fort Meade helped the Army & Air Force Exchange Service celebrate the grand opening of Qdoba Mexican Eats at the Exchange food court on Feb. 15.
Garrison Commander Col. Thomas S. Rickard; Garrison Command Sgt. Maj. Brian S. Cullen; Exchange General Manager Joanne Cahalan; Exchange Food Court Manager Anne Chester; Gary Rose, Exchange Eastern Region food program specialist; and Pamela Hutto, Exchange restaurant program manager; cut the ribbon on the new restaurant.
“I remember eating at Qdoba when I was in college, so when I saw that it was coming to the Exchange I couldn’t wait,” said Navy Petty Officer 2nd Class Nicole Roach, United States Africa Command. “I don’t eat meat, so it’s good to have the option where I can order veggies, rice and other things. They have great customer service—a good experience and very quick.”
Qdoba offers tacos, burritos, burrito bowls, nachos, tortilla soup, quesadillas and fresh-made guacamole. Dishes can be made with better-for-you ingredients, including fresh vegetables, whole-wheat tortillas and grilled chicken.
“The Exchange is honored to bring another high-quality, name-brand dining option to the Soldiers and families at Fort Meade,” Cahalan said. “The opening of Qdoba strengthens our goal to make the Fort Meade Exchange a one-stop shopping, dining and entertainment destination.”
The Exchange is dedicated to helping service members fuel a BE FIT lifestyle. All of the Exchange’s more than 1,700 restaurants, including Boston Market, Arby’s, Subway and more, offer better-for-you menu choices to support Warfighters’ readiness and resiliency. Exchange shoppers can also enjoy $2 off entrée salads at participating Exchange restaurants—including Qdoba—every Wednesday.
Qdoba is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sundays. The Exchange food court is at 2799 Rose St. For more information, call 410-305-4003.
