Moe's will also launch a 24-hour Queso Hotline to support all their queso obsessed fans. The hotline will begin at 12:01 a.m. and can be reached by dialing 1-855-440-6337. Queso fans are encouraged to call and confess how much queso they eat in one sitting, how often they think about eating queso, and the weirdest food they put queso on. Callers will be rewarded with a special surprise.
Keep calm and Queso on ✌🏻#FreeQuesoDay— Moe'sSouthwestGrill (@Moes_HQ) September 18, 2017
“As we move into our 17th year of serving our famous queso, which is now available in over 700 restaurants, we know just how much our fans light up at the mere mention of the liquid gold,” said Bruce Schroder, President of Moe’s. “It is time once again to celebrate Free Queso Day together, our annual chance to say thanks to our loyal fans and invite queso newbies along to see why Moe’s is known for it.”
