If the judge were to discover that burritos were sandwiches, Qdoba would have been barred from opening a restaurant in the same Worcester mall as Panera. Luckily for Qdoba, the judge consulted culinary historians and ruled against Panera, confirming what we all know: burritos are not sandwiches. They should have asked Chef Kevin, who has declared the case closed.
