Green chile, meet cheeseburger. Downtown Denver, meet Bubba Chinos. The latest location in the chain started by Leonard Cordova, grandson of the late Stella Cordova of the original Chubby's, will open tomorrow at 1361 Court Place, just steps from City Hall.
And first-day customers will receive free chile cheese fries from 11 a.m. until noon.
This is a franchise location. "We're excited to cater to the downtown crowd. There aren't many lunch options over here," says franchise owner Kenneth Gomez. "We'll have TVs and free wi-fi, and we plan on hosting some cool events. We'll also serve beer and wine."
