I avoid Mexican at restaurants in states not located on the border. I have not had good luck. BUT, this place was recommended by a fellow Texan, so we went. It was good. I ordered the loaded shrimp tacos and a friend got a HUGE burrito. They have a salsa bar with mild to habanero. If you want a to... More

Hidden away in the corner of a small shopping center, you'll find Chubby's Tacos. It's a delightful, inexpensive unassuming hole-in-the wall, perfect for a casual meal. Frequent diners find the hidden gems on the menu: shrimp tacos and shredded beef nachos are my favorites. The chips are fresh and the salsa bar in back has 6-10 varieties to satisfy any... More

We love Chubby's so much it has become our weekly taco night place. This location is the best of the three Chubby's we've tried in the area. You can't go wrong with any of the tacos on the menu.

The price was very good, and I was glad they had beer. The line was very long and slow moving, which would have been no problem if the food had been really good. I had a chimichanga with refried beans, rice, guacamole, and plantains for dessert. The plantains were great; the rest was fine.

Looks like a little hole in the wall; but don't some of the best Mexican restaurants look that way? Avoid lunch and dinner time rush hours because seated is limited inside and out. Tacos are AMAZING. Queso will change your life. Quesadillas are good too. Actually, all the good is pretty awesome. GREAT PRICES & FAST SERVICE!!!

Enjoyed this little place discovered by our son. Ingredients were fresh and everything was very tasty. Small place and crowded at lunchtime but the food will let you know why.

Our friends in Wake Forest told us to try Chubby's and I'm always game for some good Mexican food. The place doesn't look like much from the outside or inside, but sometimes you find the best food in some of the smaller places. I had a chicken burrito and some quac with chips. All the ingredients were fresh, which was... More

Visited Chubby's on another business trip to Raleigh based on TA reviews and I was not disappointed! I arrived around 7pm and the place was busy, but not packed. As others have indicated, you walk in and up to the bar/front to place your order. I had the Two Taco Combo (Tinga Chicken on soft flour and Carnita on crunchy... More

We've visited Chubby's more times than I'd like to admit. These are the tacos you long for. These are the real deal. You'll be back!

The food is wonderful but if you've never been it's confusing at first. There is no waitstaff. You order at the bar then take your food outside or sit at a cramped table. It's wonderful if the weather is good (had live music on a Saturday night outside too). The booths sit two comfortably, four possibly. Our family of five... More
