Stumbled across this place while in a business trip. Half sit down half fast food the food is good. I had a #6 combo which was good. Their green sauce is excellent. If I get another chance to eat here I was to try the Carne Fries the table next door has them and they look great.

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.

My son was at an event nearby and my father and I were looking for something to eat. The food was average, the service was ridiculously slow. We waited 45 minutes for our food to arrive. Wasn't worth it.

Daniel, first let me thank you for your feedback and I'm sorry for your experience. It is true that sometimes we have delays in pushing out food orders, especially on the weekend. We get extraordinarily busy and sometimes it's just overwhelming. Our average wait time is about 20 minutes. I would like to know more specifics about your visit so... More

Well been here 3 times , the food has been very good, make sure you are hungry because the portions are big and tasty,the only problem is that of the service it's pretty slow whether you go in or drive thru. There's one lady running the cash register and drive thru. Weekend mornings seem to be the busiest. Other then... More

My buddy and I eat here occasionally. ...have so for many years. Love their inexpensive food and speedy service. This place is not formal dining but it consistently gets the job done well. I always get their smothered beef and bean deluxe burrito (hot of course) with a glass of horchata.

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!
