My husband wanted a cheese steak on returning home from a New Year's Weekend Getaway. His place of choice is Chubby's. The parking lot was full of cars so my first thought was that the restaurant would be SRO. To our surprise, there was counter space available where we sat until a booth became available. My husband ordered a mushroom... More

I tried here for a cheesesteak after reading some good reviews. It provides a good option for a sandwich where you don't have to wait in a long line and can pay with options other than cash. I got my cheesesteak with the usual toppings - whiz and onions - and it was really good. I would have put just... More

My husband and I frequent Philadelphia often and to date our favorite cheesesteak place has been Dalessandro’s. We have tried a few other places but are usually disappointed. Chubby’s is located across the street from Dalessandro’s and is the first place we have tried that rivals Dalessandro’s cheesesteaks. I ordered a chicken cheesesteak and my husband ordered a traditional cheesesteak;... More

Steak sandwich was very good, a little wet but great taste. The service was awesome for a busy Friday. Worth a try if you are in the area.

Overall a good cheesesteak hoagie.. They stuff the roll with tons of steak and onions! Plenty of seating at the counter or booths. Parking lot holds about 12 - 15 cars. They also serve beer and can make you a cocktail or a nice drink. No coke for the Captain ( they have Pepsi products) - my girlfriend was a... More

I enjoyed the local atmosphere of this restaurant but to be honest cheesesteaks and hoagies just aren't my thing. The chicken was pretty tasty but it was just pretty plain to me. I liked the fries but the best part was the Hank's wild cherry soda. My friends seemed to really enjoy their sandwiches so I guess it is recommended... More

You won't leave hungry, that's for sure. The $9 cheesesteak is about a foot long, and absolutely stuffed with delicious chopped steak. I had mine with provalone and grilled onions, but stuff yours with any of the large variety. Service is prompt and and friendly at this small, modest spot. Parking is a bit tight. They also have a nice... More

If you are ever in town look this place up. Parking on the side (Which is hard to find in this area) Everything on the menu looks good.... More
