I drove right past looking for the old building and had to circle back. But, don't let the new building fool you, they still have the same amazing green chili, service, and great staff with a large area to sit. If you've never been Chubbys...More

If you are a fan of big, spicy, greasy, smothered in amazing green chili burritos, you owe it to yourself to find this little hole in the wall on 38th ave. Every time you drive by there is a line out the door, and for...More
