Somewhere in between the two reviews below... – I work in the NW Industrial area and have been to Tubby's many, many times. I don't find the help rude at all and I've never had undercooked anything from there. Having said that, it's also not worthy of 5 stars. Tubby's is quite simply just a regular sandwich shop. Nothing fabulous or spectacular about anything there, but they don't claim to be either; obviously, Howard's Catering is their "big" business. But the burgers are pretty consistently good, although one time my burger was a bit overcooked and another time they forgot the cheese. But twice out of about 25 times ain't bad (don't judge me - food options are very slim in the NWI area)! The egg salad sandwich is another favorite, and I really like their fries. Breakfast is good and cheap but they serve way too much food for my liking that early in the day.
The place is big and clean, and you can sit in a booth or at a table, or you can call ahead for take out. Just don't walk in with any unrealistic expectations and you'll get a satisfying meal at a resonable price.
Rude and Undercooked Chicken – Unfortunently, this establishment does not pride itself on customer service or the quality of their food. The counter person was impolite, the food was so undercooked that it was unedible. I would suggest going to Guild's Lake Inn or McTarnahan's Pub, both of those places are friendly and have good food, which is cooked all the way through.
Great Food, Quick Service, Order ahead for pick up too! – Hey! Tubby's is a great neighborhood place that's not really in a neighborhood. For all the people in the NW Industrial area or just driving down Hwy 30, this is the place to go! Great food...Great Service. Breakfast is quiet and portions are hefty and not too pricey. Lunch is busy but plenty of parking and plenty of seating. Kind of old style, where you order at the counter and then food is delivered to your seat. Service is great, friendly workers, very clean. It isn't fancy, it's comfortable. When I'm in a rush, I call ahead for take out at no extra charge! I've also called ahead to eat there and the food is ready when I arrive...you don't get that service everyday! The owner is onsite everyday and is easy to chat with, takes care of any trouble on the spot. My company has used Tubby's for food delivery service. Great menu for breakfast or lunch meetings with really good and on-time delivery. They've even catered our company picnic for 650 people! Tubby's can really do anything it seems... AND they do it well. The burgers are great! They always have a couple homemade soups and a different lunch special everyday. Someone from work calls in to see what the offerings are each day. I go to Tubby's at least twice a week and have for a couple years! The menu has a lot of variety, so I don't think I can get bored with it! I recommend you give it a try. Maybe I'll see you there next week!
