Fire forces Bubba Chinos on 38th to close indefinitely

Outposts of Bubbachinos -- the burrito-and-green-chile chain owned by Leonard Cordova, a grandson of the original Chubby's owner, Stella Cordova -- have expanded so quickly in this town over the last few years, we can barely keep up.

But the prolific chain is down one: The location on 38th Avenue and Stuart opened just over a year ago, but when we stopped by today, the place was dark, and signs were posted warning would-be patrons that the restaurant is closed until further notice due to a fire.
