Awesome stuff!

Just tried for first time and the three of us agreed that it was really awesome food! The carnitas tacos were scrumptious, very flavorful, very juicy. The steak burrito was equally awesome, and boy is it huge! I'm not a huge fan of lettuce in a burrito so will have them hold it next time. The... read more

The food was ok. The cashier gave us chips after she rang up our order and she failed to indicate that the various sauces were at the back of the restaurant.

Great chips! So crunchy and always fresh! Love their tacos too! Nice little local Durham restaurant right on 9th Street! Careful about parking thought.... there's a huge lot across the street but they're starting to ticket people if you park there to go to 9th street.

The Burritos are great. They offer a wide variety of Mexican hot sauces (self service). Small and occasionally crowded but very popular.

9th street has an overwhelming number of places to get burritos or tacos, but Chubby's is my go-to. The food is consistently tasty, the burritos are massive, and the salsa bar has some great varieties. I could drink the guacatillo salsa.

Everything on the menu is wonderful. Be sure to get there early before it gets too crowded. Be sure to be hungry when you get there, the portions are large!

No frills taco place with really tasty tacos. It was packed in there. Not a lot of seating. Don't be turned off by the looks of the place. The food was delicious and it's reasonably priced.

This is a cool little unpretentious place on 9th in durham. it's not too overrun during weekday lunches, provided you show up by 12:20. after 12:30 the line does get a little long, but the kitchen is pretty quick. the tacos are very tasty. they have a very good wide menu. and the salsas in the back are really really...

In my experience, hole-in-the-wall Mexican restaurants are the best, and Chubby's is definitely one that is worth visiting! In the few years since they've been opened, their menu has changed, and they now have combos that come with a drink, rice, beans, and chips. I think this is a great addition, because in the past I would just get two... More

This place is a total hole in the wall located on the famous 9th street in Durham, NC. It has amazing tacos and chips! I also was very surprised when I saw that they had Salsa Bar, which was AMAZING!! You totally have to try it when you are in Durham, it's a local favorite and I promise you'll want... More
