I've been to Chunky's three times recently and I've been totally pleased with their food, staff and cleanliness. We've had the wings, gyros and Greek salad. The menu has many options and is reasonably priced. Fried gizzards? Indeed! The employees seem to take pride in their work and were outgoing and pleasant. Don't go to any corporate chain on the...

This is the type of seafood you want to eat when visiting Florida. They have everything from wings to blue crab. Its reasonably priced and will be hot when you get it back to your place to eat it!

We visited Chunky's and found it to be a wonderfully friendly, small delicious spot. There were six of us so we were able to try many dishes and can highly recommend the following: corn nuggets, hush puppies, Greek salad, wings, pita bread and grilled chicken teriyaki over rice. Chunky's is clean, easily accessible (right off Waldo and Hawthorne Roads), and... More

Chunky's menu is so diverse, I know I'll need to go back several times for a thorough review. I've been eyeing this place since it opened, and being that there are limited dining options on the east side of Waldo road, I figured I'd wind up there sooner or later. Something prevented me from stopping in for months, though. It's... More

I visited Chunky's when they first opened. They were trying to do so much, that nothing worked. That is in the past! The food is really good now. New staff and a remodel so that they now have a cozy eat in area. They have gyros! They have grilled chicken, rice, and warm pita on the side. The the curry... More

Very shocked at the attitude from the staff. Would NOT recommend them nor would I choose to visit them again. Additionally, the quality of the food is not worth the price.

Great fry house in west Gainesville. You can drive through or walk up only. everything is cooked fresh when you order it and the staff there is super friendly. they have wings which are delicious and they have other seafood as well like crabs and shrimp scallops you name it. but most of all they have conch fritters!

I go here at least once a month to grab some of their fried shrimp, chicken wings and crabs, which you can purchase by the bushel if you are feeding a small army. Wish they had more than one location, as its quite a drive from NW Gainesville.

Upon hearing about this place from other locals, my friends and I decided to give it a try. First off, it's in a pretty seedy area of town, so if you decide to venture out, just keep things in perspective (not all of Gainesville is high-brow). I was pleasantly surprised by their selection of food. It's a drive-through, but not... More
