We picked up carryout from El Chubby's while we were visiting family in Aurora. It wasn't spectacular Mexican food but it was delicious and plentiful. Be careful about the spicy dishes, as some are extremely spicey.More

On vacation from el paso and decided to check this place out. Its not bad food but the salsa needs a lot working on. It tastes and looks like it right out of a can. Not a bad place for lunch.

We are a family owned business for more than 25 years and serve up fresh and quick. We make beans in the pot just like mama used to make and our green chili is made fresh everyday! We are best known for our Hot Green Chili, but our Carne Asada Fries is now our new Signature dish. We hope to see you soon!
