Stopped after our tour of Duke & really enjoyed the lunch. Not fancy but tasty food at a reasonable price. Worth checking out!

This is the best Mexican food you will find this side of Mexico! Don't go to any other place...Chubbies is the real deal! A great menu and a friendly staff (especially Abril!). Great for a jeans and T shirt meal.

My girlfriend and I frequent the Woodcroft location, and there are no better tacos anywhere in the triangle. Thus is a counter style restaurant with an 8-salsa salsa bar. Try the chile de arbol on whatever you order!

I've tried the tacos on multiple occasions at chubby's and found the ones I tasted to be really good. I'm not a taco expert but I know what I like. It can be crowded but I've always managed to find a spot to sit. In my opinion, the price is fair but colleagues from LA have pointed out that they're... More

Hear on a college tour. Great place and good food. Hole in the wall atmosphere. Not far from campus.

We had heard about Chubby's and finally got the opportunity to make it over to 9th Street for dinner. This is a very small, yes, hole-in-the-wall type restaurant with just a few tables crammed in. Our group had various items on the menu and enjoyed everything. Portions were good and prices were great. Not the cleanest nor updated place, but... More

I eat the fish tacos and love them. Nice small salsa bar. Easy, friendly, reliable, inexpensive. I frequent the location on Ninth Street.

I was visiting Durham with my son while at a camp at Duke and wanted to give him a taste of the local, college type scene. We both loved the food and the laid back, very unfancy atmosphere. You order at the counter and there are only a few tables. It wasn't crowded when we were there, but I can... More

Love this place. Always go in the early for lunch to avoid the crowds. The grilled shrimp tacos are fantastic. The only thing that would it better would be if they had Margaritas.

We prefer tacos etc ala carte, skipping the dinner with uninspired added beans and rice. Fish and shrimp tacos are our favorites.
