Chubby's Diner is a small, friendly, neighborhood diner that's as retro as it gets.  The diner is retro not only in the decor, which harkens back to the 1950's, but the food is retro as well, as you won't find anything fancy on the menu, just good, ol' home cookin' and diner "comfort food."

As with all restaurant reviews I publish, I have no affiliation with the restaurant reviewed, and there is no monetary gain on my part, as I am simply a person who likes to eat, and I love to write-up, and publish my dining experiences.

Photo:  It's early Monday morning, just a little after 0700, March 11, 2019, and I'm ready to enjoy a delicious breakfast at Chubby's Diner, located in Roseville, CA.  Chubby's is located in a 1970's era shopping center, not far off I-80, and offers plenty of free, safe parking.

Photo:  As you enter the restaurant, you'll notice the large counter.  Booths line the window and the back of the restaurant.  The dining room is quite compact, and during busy hours, it can get quite "chummy."  On this early Monday morning, there is only one booth seated.  I chose to sit at the counter.

Photo:  The first page of the large breakfast menu offers everything that you could imagine for breakfast.  Chubby's is serious about breakfast, as breakfast is available any time the restaurant is open.  I began to scan the menu and my eyes stopped on #2 and never really left.

Photo:  I'm at he rear of the dining room looking toward the entrance.  Note the period vinyl upholstery and the 1957 Chevy picture.  Doesn't this remind you of an "old school" diner?

Photo:  If you look over the counter, to the side of the cash register, you can get a view of the chef at work.  I love open kitchens!

Photo:  Meet Cynthia, my friendly, but camera shy server, as she brings my breakfast to me.  She didn't really want her photo taken, but I did it anyway.  My breakfast arrived quickly, less than 15 minutes after placing my order.

Photo:  I'm all smiles as I prepare to enjoy my "All American Breakfast."  Thanks, Cynthia, for snapping my photo.

Photo:  Cynthia told me the "All American Breakfast" was big, and she was right!  Big and delicious!

You get TWO biscuits, covered with lots of country gravy.  Then, you get two eggs, cooked any style, along with sausage or bacon, or if you're like me and you can't make up your mind, you get a little of both.  

The biscuits were fresh, made in-house, and were delicious.  The country gravy was tasty, and had lots of sausage chunks in it, which really went well with the biscuits.  If you love breakfast gravy, you've come to the right place, as Chubby's gives you lots of gravy.

I ordered my eggs cooked over easy, and one of them was a little on the hard side, but no worries on my part.  The bacon seemed like just a piece of bacon until I took a bite of it, surprise!  ... it had a REALLY smoky taste, which in my book means delicious.  The sausage was big, juicy and delicious.

The "All American Breakfast" is just that, an "old school," "Americana" breakfast, direct from the heartland of America.  I definitely enjoyed my breakfast, and I left with a full stomach and a smile on my face.

When you're in the mood for some great "Americana comfort food," head over to Chubby's Diner in Roseville Square.  The food is delicious, the portions are large, the price is right, and the staff are friendly.  Breakfast is served all day, so anytime, you can get your breakfast fix at Chubby's Diner.
