I did it. I actually did it. I… Ate At Chubby’s.
If you read my post about this place last week you know what I am talking about. If not, go back and check out this post.
Ok, I didn’t physically actually eat the food AT Chubby’s. But I did convince the Lady Friend to swing by with me and get some take out. Good thing too, the “dining room” was pretty rough.. as seen here:
Yes, that is the entire dining room. So take out was the way to go. This is the menu… not just the takeout menu, the only menu. It was a plain 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece of paper folded in half.
From what we could tell it was a family business. We saw what appeared to be a mother and father working the kitchen and their 16 year old son took our order at the counter. And by the way… all three of them fit the description of “Chubby’ so it’s hard to tell who the joint was named after.
After some thought, my Lady Friend decided to go with the Reuben and I just HAD to know what the hell a Squealer is. Has anyone heard of this before? It’s basically a pork rib drum stick kind of thing. I chose to get the Sweet Thai Chile dipping sauce, which comes on the side:
I have to admit, I wasn’t too impressed with how the Squealers looked. Kind of a grayish mass of meat. But you don’t often see pork without BBQ or some other sauce on it, so I was willing to accept it’s unusual look as long as it tasted ok.
AND IT DID! The sauce was good, a great mix of sweet & spicy. Kind of like me. My Lady Friend enjoyed her Reuben too.
We also split this double layered cookie sandwich thing. It’s two chocolate chip & macadamia nut cookies with some sort of vanilla frosting squished into the middle and holy crap was it good.
So there you go… don’t judge a book or restaurant by it’s cover… or it’s shitty marketing:
Too bad we’re moving next week or we’d definitely be back to Eat At Chubby’s again… seriously!
