It is very casual, and very friendly! There is a real variety of pork and beef entrees, but ALL homemade! All of our food came to us piing hot, good beer and excellent sides. The waitstaff knows the food and is super friendly. HEARTY portions!

I was told that Chubby's has a good reputation and they have awesome BBQ. So we stopped in during our recent road trip and the BBQ ribs were fantastic. I ordered the full rack of ribs and they were meaty and delicious. The full rack...More
