Founded in 1987 by the two Touris brothers, immigrants from Greece, there are now four Chubby's locations in the metroplex. The restaurant's name refers to what you would probably become if you became a regular, addicted to the Southern/Texan, Tex-Mex, and Greek delights served here. The regulars are legion and enjoy the cuisines presented through a classic diner prism, from traditional hearty breakfasts like the Ribeye Steak 'N Eggs served with hash browns or grits, toast or biscuits and cream gravy, to the Tex-Mex combo platters and gyro plate that mixes lamb and beef with a side of Greek salad and pita bread. As is to be expected, there are chicken-fried steak, meatloaf and fried fish dishes served alongside other tried-and-true greasy-spoon stars.
