So I got two al pastor tacos, and they were slightly better than average, but at FIVE DOLLARS for ONE TACO, I really was expecting the best tacos I’ve ever had in my life, that was not the case… at that price you can get at least two instead of one at any other place. I don’t know how they’re able to claim “best tacos in RDU”, but I highly doubt it. I’m not saying the food was bad or anything, but definitely not worth what I paid for it. I get overhead costs and what nor, but it’s still a little ridiculous. Also, they only had like one or two salt shakers in the whole place??

We went to Chubbys tacos for my daughter’s birthday. We got in and found the line, it’s to the left when you walk in. We walked past the really cool murals on the wall one that read “Cubby’s Tacos” with a taco and a dog on top of a bull with a rainbow behind it. The artist put a lot of time into these. We got to the register and I ordered 3 Carne Asada tacos (non spicy) with a side of rice and refried beans. It was so good. They reminded me of street tacos like I used to get when I lived in NYC. They were so good, they were fresh and delicious I highly recommend. My daughter got the same without the side. My boyfriend got the “Chubby” Changa with Tinga chicken. It was delicious. It has a lot of cream. My daughter and I got Jarrito sodas which aren’t easy to find. They even had Mandarin, not many places carry this flavor. We also got chips and salsa which were complimentary. They had a whole salsa bar to choose from. I really liked these tacos and we will definitely be back.

The best tacos I’ve had at any restaurant in Durham. Love the fact that they have a salsa bar that compliment the chips well. Their torta is life-changing I would recommend it with the spicy tinga chicken. They have different options for dessert but the plantains are the MVP of the dessert team.

Baja Fish Tacos are my favorite. The salsa bar is a total hit! On Tuesdays they have $2 beers on draft 🙂 they have outdoor seating as well. I always enjoy the reggaeton music playing as well.

Love the salsas!! They are the real highlight of this little local gem. They have around 6-8 fresh made salsas that all vary quite dramatically in taste, and style. Burritos are a good large size. High-quality ingredients. They have just started 2 dollar taco Tuesdays which is a great deal.

Disclaimer: 3.5/5 This place was decently rated so I decided to give it a try. I haven't explored many hispanic restaurants so I had high hopes for this spot. The ambience had hispanic culture: bright colors, stereotypical decorations, etc. I haven't had hispanic food since I left California, so when I saw enchiladas on the menu, I had to get it. The menu was a little bit confusing but pricing is per item / item + meat. I also got 2 tacos. The carne asada tasted more like pork to me, but it wasn't too bad. The saving grace was the salsa: not too spicy but quite flavorful. The rice and beans were not bad but a tad too salty. The enchiladas were also okay, and similar to the rice and beans, a bit too salty. The service was great though! They brought out the food in a timely manner and answered any questions I had, and provided to-go boxes as well. Great staff! Seems like they have different deals depending on the day. When I went, it was kids eat free? Or at least at a reduced price. There were a lot of families that day. However, for me, the pricing was too high for the amount of food I ordered.

The food at this place is not the best. Tacos are not really well put together, the chicken tacos is not really tasty, it has tone of oignons with low quality chicken. Beef tacos is basically the same. The drinks are good there with friendly service.
