On State Street in Pleasant Grove sits a neighborhood café that serves up big food — big enough to fit its name. Chubby’s Neighborhood Café specializes in big portions and small prices. For the price of a meal at a typical fast food place, Chubby’s guarantees you will not leave hungry.

Its diverse menu ranges from Southern comfort food to burgers and fries and everything in between. And all of it is amazing. Some menu specialties include beer-battered fries, home-made jambalaya, fresh-from-the-smoker baked beans and chicken fried steak. Chubby’s cheese steak burger is the crowning jewel in its menu full of good eats. This combination of a cheese steak sandwich and a hamburger can only be described as mounds of beefy goodness.

Chubby’s inexpensive prices make it accessible to college students and families alike. The average meal price is around $7 and considering the portions, that is a steal. If you’re looking for a down-home atmosphere and great food, this is the place for you.


Chubby’s is located at 670 W. State Rd. in Pleasant Grove. They’re open Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
