Jody Lytton graduated from N.C. State University and began working as an electrical engineer. His career brought him to Florida and Texas where he fell in love with hole in the wall Mexican restaurants and taquerías. He searched far and wide for a restaurant in Raleigh to satisfy his cravings for authentic food. With much determination, Jody ended up opening his own place we all know and love, Chubby’s Tacos.

DSC03702Chubby’s Tacos wouldn’t be such a thriving business without its loyal Raleigh customers and new visitors anxious to experience the delicious food. This weekend Chubby’s is not only celebrating Cinco de Mayo but also its fifth anniversary, which happens to conveniently fall on May 5, 2013. You can celebrate at the Raleigh locations all weekend long with food and drink specials. What more could a Foodie ask for? The Cinco de Chubby’s $5 tostada combo special is guaranteed to put a smile on your face when the generous portion of authentic food arrives to your table. The loaded tostada comes with your choice of tinga, carnitas, ground beef, shredded beef, barbacoa, or chorizo, beans, lettuce, tomato, cheese and sour cream.

If you’re like me, on Cinco de Mayo I always want a margarita. Thankfully, all of the margaritas on the rocks will be $3.50. Two special margaritas will be featured for the Cinco de Chubby’s celebration, including the vibrantly colored Chubby Blues Margarita.

2013050295212255[1]The Classic Chubby’s Margarita will also be $3.50 and includes a quirky twist. You’ll find a floater of Kinky Vodka in your margarita, which is an infusion of super premium vodka distilled with mango, blood orange liqueur and passion fruit.

2013050295212322[1]All you taco-lovers should head out to Chubby’s Tacos this weekend for giveaways, fresh and authentic food and, as always, a fun atmosphere.
