I have fond memories of Chubby’s (Raleigh location), going every Monday for $1 off burritos with friends for a burrito that would last 2 meals. The phrase “hole in the wall” definitely comes to mind. Fast, cheap, greasy with a good salsa bar and 3 veggie options. The size of the burrito did seem much smaller during my recent visit. The mixed drink I ordered was mediocre. Without the salsa and nostalgia, my rating is probably closer to a 2, but that guacatillo brings it to a 3.

The salsa bar is a GREAT concept! Every order comes with a generous basket of tortilla chips and access to the salsa bar. (The chile de arbol salsa is the best imho) The black bean sweet potato taco is the absolute best, closely followed by the mushroom and the tofu coming in only slightly behind that. All are great vehicles for the wonderful salsas as well lol. A really good lunch for under $10, which is definitely a rarity when it comes to vegan food. I would love to see them add a few more vegan options, but I mean, what they do offer is delicious and cheap so I can't complain too much. Absolutely recommend!


Cons: Only a few options (but all fantastic!)

Ok tacos, three are vegan.

I tried the sweet potato and black bean, tofu and vegetables, and portobello mushroom tacos. The mushroom taco was very wet and messy. The sweet potato and black bean was the best, very tasty. The tofu and vegetable taco was bland. The taco shells tasted great, and they had a decent salsa bar and chips. Priced fairly.

Pros: Good salsa bar, Reasonably priced, Great black bean and sweet potato taco

Cons: Serves mostly meat offerings , Some tacos are bland wo salsa

Best place for cheap food

I love this place! it's my go to for cheap really good food. The portabello mushroom taco is really good and juicy (they cook the mushrooms with pico de gallio so it's juicy and has lots of flavor). The black beans and sweet potato taco is also really good, especially if you pour a bunch of salsa of your choice on it (otherwise, it's a little dry). The Spanish rice is pretty standard and also delicious.
Every order comes with tortilla chips and they have a pretty good salsa bar with delicious salsas.
The place has a hole in the wall sort of feel to it. It's still nice to sit and eat your meal, but it's more of a hang out and chillax type of place, not a super fancy type of place.
