This was our first visit to this location. The staff was friendly and helpful. The food tasted great. We only gave 4 stars because all the sides were warm, not hot though. Ordered the 3 Taco and Seafood Samplers. Happy with both. The lemonade is a must! We will be going back.

We love Chubbys! They always have delicious food and excellent service. We recently used them to cater a work event for 25 people and they provided everything we needed down to the serving utensils and cutlery. The manager on site was there every step of the way to ensure our order was correct! Can’t wait to order more tacos.

Food is good, but I've never had the same order filled the same way twice. One tiny bag of chips, or two huge ones? Taco actually filled up, or two shreds of slaw on a fish crumb? Will we get the hard shell taco we ordered, or a soft shell? Entirely different order, or something in the ballpark of what we asked for? Believe me, I understand that working in food service sucks. I don't care if things aren't perfect. I just wish I knew what to expect.

Prices are great, food is always awesome. An excellent Durham classic! We love the fresh tortilla chips and salsa bar, as well as all the classic menu options. Chorizo taco bowl was a great decision last time, and our three-year-old loves the black beans. One of our favorites!

Authentic, fresh, delicious, inexpensive, and they have a liquor license. Homemade food at fast food prices. Two of us ate a nice lunch and left a 20% tip for under $25.

Food was very tasty. Portions were generous, served quick and hot. Salsa bar has some tasty offerings. Good draft list (for on-site consumption). Fast-casual, so order at the counter or take a seat at the bar. Non-beer available as well, including adult cocktails

We called to place a pickup order and were immediately put on hold. We had been on hold for so long we decided to drive to the restaurant to place our togo order in person (while still staying on hold). When my husband arrived to the cashier, we showed his phone being still on hold 15 minutes later. The two girls look at their phone, at each other and just shrugged - not even an apology was given. The food is good but I am giving a three star review because of their average customer service.

Generally, I love Chubby’s. They serve good food and they do it quickly. Though there’s a bar, I don’t smell alcohol and I appreciate that. The place is extremely kid-friendly, making it a good place for a fast dinner with a family. My main complaint would be that there isn’t enough vegetarian/vegan options, and some of the service can be prickly, but though that doesn’t bother me that much, it can bug others a lot.

All I can say is Chubbychanga with chili is amazing. I know I never would've expected those words to come our of my face...and yet here we are. Oh and even though I've been here 3 or 4 times I just found out about the salsa bar. 😂 Anyway do the thing y'all!

The food is great! The prices are high on some items. The guacamole is $1.75 for 2 ounces! Its great for tacos and basic Mexican fare.

Chubby's is a Durham classic. The tortillas especially taste fresh and authentic. All the chip sauce/salsa options are always a hit. An easy choice if you unsure about dinner or want a place to bring company. Very reasonable prices for the quality.

I love this place! The food is good as well as inexpensive. Nice eating areas inside as well as a extensive salsa bar for your chips! The nice thing to is that you can either order at the counter or sit at the bar and be served there with drinks. Parking is easy as well.

Large dining room and covered outdoor seating provide plenty of space for patrons to eat. There is a fully stocked bar with a friendly bartender and lots of TVs for viewing inside. The food is great and we love the tacos, and especially the salsa bar.

Staff it's friendly and they always engaged in conversation make you have a great time. The barkeep keeps you having fun. If you have any questions they're not scared to give you any answers or prices on different drinks they are very knowledgeable. Let's just say my brother and I will be returning for a Saint Patrick's Day. 👏👏👏👍👍👍😁😁

Chubby's doesn't disappoint, with delicious food -- their tacos are amazing! Plenty of sauce options for you to self serve. Margaritas are even better. Laid back atmosphere, mix of people unwinding after work & families. It also seems to be a good option if you're looking for a place to unwind solo, as there's usually good conversation at the bar. Seating includes bar option, tables and unpadded wooden booths. The service is top notch. Lots of easy parking and convenient location.

Although they moved to this larger location a year or two ago, the menu is much the same: tacos, burritos, enchiladas, etc. It's not one of those menus with 100 different combo platters -- they keep it nice and simple. And quick! Food arrives very quickly after ordering, even during busy lunch times. I often get the enchiladas or the taco salad. The chicken and beef is well seasoned and tasty and the lettuce and tomatoes are good quality. But the real star is the salsa bar! They have an array of freshly-made salsas, so there's something for everyone. I have lunch here every few weeks, and the service and quality is consistent. I'm happy to have this in my neighborhood.

Great deal, low prices! Unlimited chips and salsa, and there is a large variety of salsas! Good vegan options as well, and festive atmosphere. One of my favorite places to go.
