Great food; good price.

Have visited Chubby's many times. My only complaint is there is not always enough seating at peak times. Great shredded pork. HUGE burritos. Salsa bar.

My first visit, I ordered the tinga chicken taco, with rice and beans. We enjoyed the salsa bar. Everything was labeled do you knew what the different sauces were. I did not care for my taco, tasted a bit aged with sauce on top. This 2nd visit, I ordered the chicken ta vBulletin o, spinach queso and chips, quacamole, chipoltle... More

Fresh and fast! We enjoyed the awesome selection of homemade salsas! Each was a masterpiece. The fajita plate was tender and delicious and the seafood tacos Baja style were fabulous. I wish this place was in my hometown!! I could really develop a habit. The black beans had a bay leaf in them and they tasted so fresh and not... More

We both had the #1 three taco combo plus margaritas. They were out of frozen but the on the rocks versions sure hit the spot. The value and taste here are well above the normal fare. My fav was the Tinga Chicken - might be to spicey for some.

Great quick stop for an excellent variety of tacos, taco salads, and quesadillas. The chips and multiple fresh salsa options complete the meal nicely. The children enjoy coming here for the kids meals, but they usually find the salsas to be too spicey. We have found this location to be consistently the best Chubby's based on their food and friendly... More

Just contacted the manager and he claims that the green and blue fuzz on the flour tortillas were BC at the manufacturing company... They process different flavors! OK not happy this is gross!! He laughed about it! Watch out food will kill you!

This is one of those places I wish I'd discovered sooner! Best tacos around -- fresh, delicious, affordable. When I leave, it feels like my gut is smiling. My favorite is the baja shrimp taco on a flour tortilla. The shrimp is succulent, with a perfect, light breading, and sprinkled with a flavorful coleslaw and sauce. It is delicious to... More

Chubby's is another local spot in Raleigh. They hand make the taco's right in front of you and give you multiple options. They also have outdoor seating so you can enjoy that nice Carolina breeze.

Decent place, pretty fresh ingredients. Took a long time to order (in Durham) and there was almost no where to sit. It's good food but I don't quite get the buzz this place generates. Maybe drunk Duke students with lots of money like it? If you want fresher and more healthy food for less or equal money you can go... More

These were as good as you get on the west coast. I have had trouble finding good fish or shrimp tacos in the area. These were delicious. They place was packed when we were there for lunch at 11:54! Service was fast just the same, limited seating for such a popular place.
