The owner is a pervert. The place is filthy. It is unsanitary and if you want better food go to bubba chinos

do you ever say to yourself why do people say that the meals they serve have been home made? well i can say that this place is as close to homemade as it claims, all the meat products, all the sauces all truly made from scratch, worth more then the menu price, and friendly family owners will always be on...

The Original Chubby's off of 88th and Washington get's my mixed opinion. In the past they have been great. More recently in the coming months I get very slow service. In my most recent 2 experiences it has taken more than 1 hour to get a steak burrito. I appreciate that chubby's advertises fresh cooked food for your meal, however... More

Some of the worlds finest green chili. I always return to this place when I am in town. Chili cheese fries are a must have.

Back in the 70's and 80's I would eat at the 38th and Lipan location on a regular basis. I found out during my visit the Lipan... More

The food here is so good! I love the smothered cheese fries! I would like some now actually. The place gets really busy around lunch time, but so worth it!

Chubby's has decent tasting food but it is not real Mexican by any stretch. We had the barbacoa burrito, beef enchiladas, chicken enchiladas, and "smothered fries". Service was quick. The barbacoa had a nice flavor with a bit of smoke, but inside was a glob of canned cheese sauce that had hardened. That was all that was in it. The... More
