I have to give them props for not putting out the same dull food that all the other Mexican restaurants in this area do. I've eaten here numerous times for lunch since they opened last year.
The tacos are really the specialty, at 2 - 3 dollars each really a bargain as well. You choose from a variety of ingredients, I especially like the Tilapia tacos with a perfectly complimentary chipotle cream sauce.
This place is always slammed at lunchtime, so my only wish is that it were larger because it is very difficult to get a table.
New kid on the block.
We were excited when Chubby's opened in our neighborhood. We had always heard about this place, but never been to the one in Durham. The food is good, but somehow it just misses the mark. I ordered nachos, and they really skimped on the beans.... hardly any there! The mango margaritas are FABULOUS. The salsa bar is good, very creative.
I appreciate what they are trying to do, it just not necessarily appeal to my taste. The chips are somewhat tepid. Fillings are great variety.
