I see why the line is always across the street and Chubby’s is dead. The steaks were dry and the cheese was tasteless. Not too greasy though....probably why no taste!

Chubby's is across the street from the more well known, more popular, Dalessandros. I would highly recommend Chubby's hand-over-fist versus their cross-street competitor.

Across the street is marginally better sandwich. But it's crowded, and loud. Chubby's has good AC, real waitresses, a full bar, if you have to have liquor,and comfortable booths. Chubby's wins on points.

My husband wanted a cheese steak on returning home from a New Year's Weekend Getaway. His place of choice is Chubby's. The parking lot was full of cars so my first thought was that the restaurant would be SRO. To our surprise, there was counter...More

I tried here for a cheesesteak after reading some good reviews. It provides a good option for a sandwich where you don't have to wait in a long line and can pay with options other than cash. I got my cheesesteak with the usual toppings...More

My husband and I frequent Philadelphia often and to date our favorite cheesesteak place has been Dalessandro’s. We have tried a few other places but are usually disappointed. Chubby’s is located across the street from Dalessandro’s and is the first place we have tried that...More
