Those who participated in the I Love Queso video contest last year may recognize the song playing on the site as the original hit by last year’s contest winner, Christiano Covino.

“We received such great feedback and participation in last year’s I Love Queso video contest, that this year we decided to turn it up a notch by adding dance moves to the mix and a larger cash prize,” says Joel Bulger, vice president of marketing for Moe’s Southwest Grill. “For years our guests have loved expressing to us how much they love Moe’s Queso. This summer, we’re excited to give them this fun and entertaining platform to do just that.”

 All of this excitement surrounding Queso will lead up to Moe’s second annual Free Queso Day on Wednesday, July 20. Participating locations nationwide will give one free 6 ounce cup of Moe’s famous Queso to every guest, all day. For more information, visit
