“Very Good Local BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

We tried the brisket, chicken, pulled pork and ribs with a bunch of different sides.
Everything was very good but the chicken and pulled pork were excellent! We liked how we were able to try the different sauces...we combined the sweet and hot to make the perfect sauce.
We will definitely go back to try other things on the menu.

“Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

People are very particular about their BBQ. If it is a little different it's tabbed as no good. I really Chubby Guys because of the smoke, it comes unsauced, and i like the verity of sauces. Their sides are great, love the smoked green beans. The only thing I think they are doing wrong is they don't charge enough money for what you get.

“Chubby Guys is great for BBQ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We have been to Chubby Guys BBQ on numerous occasions. It is "fast food" BBQ, but tastes just like a restaurant. They have a cute backwoods theme to the restaurant decor. The staff has been wonderful every time we have been there. They are attentive to your needs and answer all of your questions about the menu. I have had the BBQ nachos, BBQ taco and various sandwiches. They also have unique specials every week. I've enjoyed everything I've had. The mac & cheese is tasty and their homemade fries and chips are awesome. Chubby Guys makes my family happy to eat out.
