4 out of 5 stars
Raleigh’s assortment of Mexican restaurants (at least the ones I have tried) are pretty depressing. In fact it seems like the majority of them are run by the same people, because they all offer the same menu items at a somewhat dismal quality level. But not so at Chubby’s.
Situated conveniently near Rex Hospital, Chubby’s could potentially fill up a pregnant mama who is eating for two on the way home from a childbirth class, or start a recent surgery patient on the road to ruin. Either way, there are lots of tasty options on the menu. I ordered the chimichanga with a side of black beans and yellow rice. The chimichanga was a mini version of what I’m used to getting at other places but it was just enough to fill me up, and was filled with some tender stewed beef.
It also came with some chips and access to a salsa bar which I unfortunately didn’t notice until I was done eating.
Hubs ordered the ground beef taco salad which looked abundant.
Friends we ran into also highly recommended the gordita, made up of a pillowy corn bread wrapped around the filling.
What I really liked was the wealth of taco filling options. With options from beef to portobello mushrooms or Ahi Tuna, even our vegetarian friends will be pleased. Chubby’s is a small space but packs in the patrons. Prices were reasonable and food was fresh and tasty. A recommended stop.Chubby’s Tacos 2444 Wycliff Rd
