Food: The Skinny on Chubby's

Chubby's Super Subs and Pizza web site says, "Chubby's is now home to some of the best pizza in Tampa..." I will have to take issue with that statement. Chubby's needs to delete "some of." Chubby's is home to the best pizza I have ever had in my whole life. My favorite is the Meat Pie, a meat lover's nirvana with pepperoni, sausage, salami, ham, cappacola, meatballs and bacon on a perfectly prepared crust. Cholesterol be damned!

Even though Chubby's has been at their current location at 5023 Bayshore since Moby was a minnow we have just recently added this little SOG City gem to our list of "go-to" dining spots. We have jogged past it for several years and weren't very impressed with the rather small, nondescript building. Chubby's proves that you should not judge a book by it's cover however. You won't necessarily be impressed by the interior decor either. But we went in because we were hungry. We didn't leave that way though, and we were impressed with the quality and taste of the food, in addition to the warm, friendly people taking our order. There is no table service. You order at the counter.

In addition to the pizzas we can also recommend Chubby's super subs. We picked up a couple to take with us on a recent fishing expedition and the subs were tasty and filling. I had the cappacola and "that woman who catches all the damn fishes" had the turkey club. The subs were much more satisfying than the fishing. Actually, Chubby's was a lot more satisfying than a couple of high end restaurants we have experienced recently...one at the Westin on Courtney Campbell and another on Beach Drive in St. Pete. Admittedly, Chubby's isn't high end dining, but then again, we didn't spend a freakin' fortune on mediocre fare.

Chubby's serves beer and wine and has lunch and dinner specials and...be still my beating heart...delivery after five. There is a limit on the delivery area, but they are in SOG City and we are in SOG City, so...! Chubby's isn't fancy, nor is it expensive, but the food is really good and filling.

All of this blogging has worn me out and now I think I am too tired to cook tonight.

"Hello Chubby's!"
