“KC Legend”
Reviewed January 19, 2013 via mobile

This place is a legend. Been around for years, but well maintained. Step back in time with jukebox at every table. Diner decor. Great staff and good food. Have eaten here at various times of day ( and night) and never disappointed. Lots of local "characters" add to ambiance of the place. Good choice regardless of whether you are from area or just in town visiting.

“This Chubby's location has closed”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

Update to my previous review: I just returned from KC, and as of Nov 2012 this Chubby's location has closed. Others are still open. I assume the menu and food quality are still the same at the other locations but I haven't visited any of them.

“Chubby but never greasy!”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

Cute 50s-style restaurant with nice service and very good food. I loved the vintage atmosphere of the restaurant and the clean and neat entourage for this family reunion lunch in the States!

“Best Burger in the City”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

This inner city diner is a great place to catch lunch or a late night snack after being out on the town. They serve up one of the juicest, flavorful burgers in Kansas City with fresh garnishes and crisp sides. I'd walk two miles in the rain for an order of their onion rings. The service is fast and friendly. The scenery is absolutely the best for people watching and evesdropping on the most interesting conversations. Try Chubby's on Broadway for value, taste and a big dose of Kansas City cool!

“Great 50's Diner”
Reviewed July 5, 2012

I visited the location on North Barry Roadwith my sister-in-law and her family and had a great meal. I grew up in KC and usually have a pork tenderloin sandwich whenever I'm back there, but this time I had the chicken fried steak. This one was huge and was a great value for the price. The atmosphere is 50's malt shop with old Marylin Monroe and James Dean photos, red and white decor, really cool for us 60ish types.
