We wanted authentic and that's what we got. The shredded beef tacos were delicious. My son had the fish tacos and raved about them. Pico de gallo was excellent. Overall everyone was happy. Only negative-- black beans tempature was too cool. Great value and food.

Chubby's on Wycliff delivers consistently good food. The atmosphere is very casual and the service is good.

I usually order the fish or shrimp dishes, and my husband and friends like the beef and chicken tacos and burritos.

It's among the best Mexican food you'll find in the Raleigh area.

I visited Chubby's on a Saturday afternoon and had a hard time getting a table. Luckily, the food comes out so fast that people weren't occupying tables too long. I thought the variety of tacos on the menu was great and noticed that they even have some creative vegetarian options We decided to go with a Baja Tilapia Taco (special of the day), Carnitas Taco, Grilled Chicken Taco, and Tinga Chimichanga. This was more than enough food for 2 people to share! The food was great, the salsa bar was great (some very interesting salsas), and the service was great. This is definitely a place to try!

Our family enjoyed lunch at Chubby's yesterday. Chubby's offers a large variety of tacos and burritos. The food was delish! Everybody left happy and full.

For a long time, Chubby's was Raleigh's best-kept secret. Not any more. Long lines are the norm at lunch and dinner. Be ready for it - it's worth the wait. The menu hangs above the counter where you place your order. After ordering, find your table and your food is brought to you. (Don't snag a table first - regulars will glare at you.) Whatever you order, it needs to be enhanced by one of their many house-made salsas located on the salsa bar in the back. Not because their food needs enhancement but because the salsas are a must-eat! The heat (spice) varies according to the heat of the peppers used when each salsa was prepared so expect the heat on your favorite to be different from time to time. The Spicy Tinga is a spiced chicken filling. It's excellent on the taco salad or the quesadilla. Check out their weekly specials. Any meat can be served your choice of ways. YUM!!
