Chubby's Southern Style Barbecue16430A Old Frederick Rd.
Emmitsburg, MD 21727
Chubby's is in the middle of nowhere but its worth stopping in for any fan of good barbecue. Owner Tommy Caulfield calls his approach "Southern Style," but he smokes a lot more than just the pulled pork popular in the region. There's also brisket, pork loin, pork chops, baby back ribs, pit beef (summer only), and chicken. Rounding out the menu are burgers, hot dogs, chili, fried chicken and fish, and much more. But we recommend sticking to the signature items — the pulled pork in particular — and some of the good sides.
Chubby's "is vintage roadside restaurant circa 1950s, with a stack of wood by the front door, a bar with stools, and vinyl booths and tables." See Full Review…»
