The bar is located in a sketchy part of the city of San José in Costa Rica; nevertheless, that did not matter, as the place was crowded with a full bar and only a few tables available. Surprising thing for a Sunday night, but I guess not everyone has lived under a rock for the past 30 years as apparently,... More

The few times I've eaten here it's been fine, but not good: stale buns on burgers, poorly prepared wings, and mixed up orders without rectification. That, combined with the Gringo Gulch feel and low-rent sports bar ambiance, poor service, and high prices have made me look elsewhere for my beer-and-burger fix.

We visited all four locations while on vacation and the food is just amazing. The honey mustard and BBQ chicken sandwiches are to die for! If you're looking for great food with large portions, great prices, cold beer and entertainment, ChuBBs is the place to go!

My fiancee and I went to Chubbs to watch some UFC. The beer was damn cold... had those little bits of ice in them!

The drink specials are great (especially beer) and the food prices are fair with good taste. Service is decent - don't want much and unless you're a table of guys you probably won't see your server much. They play all the games (including college ball) and the atmosphere is casual and relaxing. Was our favorite stop while in the area.

Excellent food, great atmosphere, great service. What more could you ask for? My entire family loved it. Highly recommend to anyone in the area to give this place a try.

The bar had really cheap and cheesy Halloween decor. It was overpopulayed by extremely loud and obnoxious Americans. The womens bathroom had cockroaches and the food was poor. The only thing that shined in this experience was our waiter. Would not go back here!
