Don't let the D'Allesandros partisans fool you. They haven't eaten there in years and are living on past memories.

Chubby's serves steaks TO ORDER, not from a 20-pound mound of steamed gray meat. Onions are chopped a little large for

Pros: They server ice cold beer and rib eye steaks

Cons: Rep is not as good as D'Allesandro's

I started going to Chubby's because dalessandro's, across the street isn't open on Sundays, doesn't take plastic and never has parking. Once I tried their food, I was hooked. The steaks are perfect and so are the hoagies and the fries.

Pros: Great Cheese Steaks, serves beer and decent parking.

Cons: It's a chesse steak joint! not a great part of town.

.

The cheesesteak is average. Unfortunately for Chubby's, they sit across the street from Dalessando's, which in my opinion, has the best cheesesteak in Philadelphia (and therefore, the world). Chubby's just can't compare. The only reason

The cheesesteaks here are excellent. Fast service and friendly staff. Alcohol served on site. However, the buffalo chicken cheesesteak is not recommended as it is very messy and runny.

The cheesesteaks and sides at Chubby's are really good and the condiment bar in the sit down section definitely adds to it. \r
It's my first choice when I am running around Philadelphia.

Pros: Quick Service, Good Value

Cons: No long lines at 3am

A good quality steak, good service, and a cold beer while you wait. Better than your average philly neighborhood cheesesteak joint, but without the line of the tourist traps. A quality choice if you're in the area and want a low key place with decent food over a beer with a friend.

Look, I eat steaks with such frequency there is a good chance I won't live to see 40. I want to give Chubbys a big thumbs up, especially for their delectable chicken cheesesteak. The onions are particularly noteworthy. Bread and meat

Skip Pat's and Geno's the steak tastes like leather, are small for the price you pay, and are no more than tourist traps. I have never understood why these 2 places are considered good. D'Allesandro's in Roxborough is also over-rated,

We are from NYC and just came back from Philly after a short weekend getaway. I've been to Dalenssandro's couple years ago and wanted to take my boyfriend there to taste how a good cheesesteak is supposed to be like. Sadly (but good)

I have never eaten at Chubby's, but have gotten steaks for takeout. They are very good, as are the cheese fries. Good Philadelphia classics!

Pros: Cheesesteak, Hours, Beers, hot pepper bar,

Cons: only one location

At Chubby's make sure that you make the right choice. For me that right choice is their Chicken Cheesesteak with a Birch Beer or if you're in the mood--a 40. Also, choose the right booth to sit at with your group and bring quarters for

Fresh roll, tasty steak. It's open until 2 am and serves cold beer to wash the steak down. It's definitely one of the better steaks I've had.
