Reader: Chubby's Has Denver's Best Walk-up Window!
While there are many small restaurants in Denver, some eateries are so tiny that they're really nothing more than walk-up windows. We posted a list of five of these little spots last week -- which led to a big debate on the burgers at Grandpa's Burger Haven. See also: Five Walk-Up Windows to Hoof It to When You're Hungry
The busy window at the original Chubby's.
Best burgers ever
Responds Legen Dairy:
Not a fan of Burger Haven. Too much bread and no meat. All about Bourbon Grill.
And then there's this from Noah:
How on earth is Chubby's not on this list?!
Good question, Noah. We love the original Chubby's on West 38th Avenue, which started life as a drive-in burger joint, turned into a Mexican joint in the late '60s, and never added a dining area. But there are always rumors that it will, and in the meantime, there are several tables outside, as well as a bench inside -- and with its well-deserved reputation as a Denver institution, Chubby's just seems like so much more than a walk-up window.
What other walk-up spots did we miss? Post your suggestions below.
