R. I. P.. It's September 2008. The original owners of Chubby's have bailed. The new management still serve the same menu items however the quality of the food is poor. Poorer still is the preparation of the food. I ordered the jumbo burger with fries and a side of onion rings. Both fries and onion rings were saturated in grease. I threw them both away. The burger was as bland as bland gets, not to mention the flies milling about on the burger condiment table. No thank you friend, I wont be going back. *UPDATE* 12-1-08, I drove by Chubby's today and it is gone. Coming soon, Gobi Mongolian BBQ. I can't say I'm surprised.
Often overlooked in discussions of great burger joints, the unassuming Chubby's is a true find..
The burger oasis is located in an average, run-down strip mall, that also includes a Philly cheesesteak place and a pho house. The look is bare bones. No frills. Chubby's makes McDonalds look fancy. Eat up and get out.
Go with one of the Chubby's Jumbo Burgers over the quarter-pound offerings. These half-pound beauties are big, meaty and nicely ground. Add bacon and cheese for true decadence. Chubby's shows its quirky character by also offering Chinese dishes, burritos, breakfast items and steak sandwiches. The biggest knock against Chubby's is the bad fries, which taste like the store-bought, frozen kind.
Good Burgers. The burgers are good. Very juciy and tasty. The sides are not so hot, looking and tasting like they just came out of the frozen food section of the grocery store.
Long time Big Good Variety. 30 Years of Service and it shows. Blue collar joint. First class grub. Breakfast and Lunch. Fries are great. Big Burger is Grande! Breakfast faire is rib stickin'. Beer to boot. One dollar sign and five star kind of place.
Skinny Cos I Don't Eat This Garbage!. I cannot believe that Chubby's is among the highest-rated burger joints in the South Bay. The burgers there are simply AWFUL! I don't know what kind of meat they use but it's tasteful and unsatisfying, and the ambience is atrocious as well. If you want a GOOD burger go to Mountain View and get a Clarkesburger instead, you'll be glad you traded up for that cos this one will just kill your tastebuds eating it!
GREAT STEAK BURGER.
We go to eat at this place and they are pretty good, the salad stinks but the burgers are GREAT.
Great food, low price!. Good burgers; the only place for a good old-fashioned grilled cheese at a reasonable price! This place isn't anything fancy, but the food is dependably good and won't put a strain on your wallet. The only place like it that I've found in CA; reminds me of the low-key diners of the midwest.
Got my vote!. This joint is not bad at all, considering I have never heard of it. The place is not fancy, but the food deserve two thumbs up. I like their 1/2lbs "jumbo burger". I had the chicken malibu the on Wed it too was also good. My recommendation is still the jumbo. :)
Happy Burger. One of the better burger joint around. Good prices and friendly services. Got other selections as well. A good stop for lunch. Tried the Jumbo. I heard they have good breakfast, but have yet to try.
Excellent Choice. Tasty jumbo burger. I really like the freshness of the patty. Other than that, there seems to be a variety of items on the menu. You have my recommendation on this place.
