There's been a burrito war in Center City, as Chipotle and Qdoba seem to be duking it out.

I hear that a new combatant will enter the market this summer: Moe's Southwest Grill.

The chain's first Center City spot will be at 1725 Chestnut St., which was a short-lived outpost of Famous Dave's BBQ.

N.B. A Moe's is also being built in SEPTA's Suburban Station.
