The Chubby Chickn’ Burger was outstanding! It was one of the most unique and tasty burgers in San Diego we’ve had. It came with a fresh beef patty, homemade chili, fried chicken strips, lettuce, and tomato and topped with cheddar cheese and served on a toasted sesame bun.
The burger was juicy and cooked to perfection (medium-rare and pink throughout). The burgers are made from fresh, high-quality beef that’s never frozen. The chicken strips were crispy, juicy on the inside and paired well with the burger. The chunky homemade chili was also excellent!
