SAN DIEGO (June 23, 2022)—Leading fast-casual Mexican restaurant QDOBA announced the introduction of Citrus Lime Shrimp, a new limited time protein now available at participating QDOBA locations across the U.S. and Canada. QDOBA’s new Citrus Lime Shrimp features sustainably sourced and BAP (Best Aquaculture Practices) rated shrimp, all freshly sautéed in-house in a tangy citrus lime sauce. Seafood lovers, rejoice!

Because why choose only one when you can have double the protein AND double the flavor!”
