Reliably Delicious

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.

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.

Chubby's is a great Mexican casual eatery....cheap and plentiful as well as delicious. If you eat lunch, you're likely to still be full for dinner. It's very casual with inside or outside dining as well as beer and margaritas. I go to Chubby's every time I'm in Raleigh and haven't been disappointed yet. Lots of fun sauces and salsas to... More

I was a little hesitant walking up, but boy was I wrong! There were 6 of us including 2 kids under 9, and we never try a new mexican place that everyone likes. This was it. Everything was delicious, the portions were ample, there were great vegetarian options, and there was a good kids' menu. We will definately be back!

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.
