As customers slam Chipotle's queso, Moe's is giving away the cheesy dip for free -- here's how to get some

Moe’s wants to reassert itself as the king of queso.

On Thursday, the Tex-Mex chain is giving away free queso all day.

All customers can get free chips and a six-ounce cup of queso at Moe’s. You don’t even have to buy anything else — just show up and get free chips and queso.

Queso has been trending in the fast-food industry recently. In July, Wendy’s added three queso-drenched items to the menu: the Bacon Queso Burger, Bacon Queso Chicken Sandwich, and Bacon Queso Fries. Del Taco ditched nacho cheese in favour of all-natural queso in early September. And, in mid-September, Chipotle rolled out its queso nationwide.

However, Chipotle’s queso has had a less-than-positive reaction. Many customers have complained about the texture, with some calling the chain’s queso “a crime against cheese.”

According to a Chipotle spokesperson, queso sales and customer reactions have been sufficiently encouraging and the chain is not planning on substantially changing the recipe.
