I got some take-out from here recently and was not impressed. Tried a selection of offerings, from the nachos (loaded with ground beef, arrived home soggy and cool), the tacos (the double tortilla was weird and the flavors were pretty bland), and the burrito (extremely...large, but dry and the al pastor chicken was not tasty). Honestly a lot of other much better places around Durham that I would go to before repeating a visit to this one.More

Nothing blew me away--"solid" is the best word to describe it all. Tacos are a slightly larger size compared to bartaco or Babalus, and are good, but not as fresh or inventive as those two more corporate places--with prices being about the same. Service was...indifferent at best, but food came out rather quickly (but it was early lunch time, just past 1130). Rice and bean sides were below average; chips were good, but a nice selection of sauces at the salsa bar. All in all, a solid local chain for lunch. A good place for a good lunch supporting a local company.More

Stopped in for lunch on a Saturday. Seated quickly after ordering. Good salsa bar and fresh tortilla chips. Baja shrimp tacos , shredded beef tacos, chimichanga were all very good. Good amount of food for money. Would definitely go back.

If you have never been to this place don't let the look fool you. At first I thought oh geez just another fast food Mexican restaurant. But some of my family wanted to go there and highly recommended it so we thought well we'll give...it a try. We did not want to order Margaritas that were pre-made or from a jar so we asked for top shelf Margaritas made by hand. Thank you Jose you are a genuinely courteous young man and make fabulous Margaritas from scratch. The food is excellent is served very quickly and has a very reasonable price. You can order a la carte and really barely pay anything or you can order a combo for a full meal. We were so hungry we ate all the food before I remember to take pictures for TripAdvisor! The chips and salsa are wonderful and you can go select whatever salsa you want from multiple types. If this was near my house I would be going quite often. Please Chubby's open a branch in Florida on the West Coast!More

Went for dinner. Food was served quick. Burrito was huge. Son said it was good. Fajitas meat was over cooked and a little dry. Not what I usually get when ordering Fajitas. Just average tasting. Would try a different place next time.

The food is always hot and prepared fresh. The portions are large. I like the burritos. The salsa selection really adds to the restaurant. Don't over-look this cute place to eat with family and friends!

This was my first visit and I was surprised! The dining room is large airy and colorful and the food is delicious! I had the cheese enchiliada combo and my wife had the Chubbychanga! It is a walk-in, place your order at the counter and...take a number to your table. The wait staff is friendly and very helpful. The food arrives quickly and is hot and tasty. Condiments are available at a self serve bar - Salsas - mild to habenaro, pico, and a very tasty quac are made fresh daily. Don't miss out!More

Chubbys is excellent mexican food at an extremely low cost. The food is uniformly tasty and always prepared fresh and hot. It is comfort food and has the ultimate virtue of being available for those busy days when you can't face making dinner. Great tacos...are the start. All the dishes come with a choice of either ground beef, shredded beef, barbacoa, carnitas, spicy chicken etc etc. You get what you desire when you desire it. great place to eatMore

My family goes to this Chubby's as much as possible. The burritos are huge...big enough to share. They also have tortas that are as good as we used to get in San Diego. The endless fresh chips and salsa bar are the best around! Also...has a nice-looking bar.More
