Around the Town Thursday: Chubbys on Broadway

Welcome to Around the Town Thursday!  Thursday is becoming one of my favorite days because of Around the Town Thursday.  I love highlighting interesting and unique places.

Kansas City may be known for it’s bar-b-que and jazz but don’t ever think those are the only good things KC has to offer.  There are tons of great museums, activities, wineries and distilleries and places to eat.  And I love to eat!  D1 is a big foodie and he’s got the digs on lots of good little places with great food.

Chubby’s on Broadway is a fantastic family-owned diner in downtown Kansas City, Missouri.


The interior design is as close to 1950s as you can get without actually going back in time, which I absolutely love.

Love the decor!

One of Chubby’s claims to (local) fame are that they’re the “Home of ‘The Big One'”, the “Big One” being huge cinnamon rolls.  Their cinnamon rolls are to die for.  And, yes, big too.

But their cinnamon rolls aren’t the only yummy things at Chubby’s.  The burgers are great, eggs benedict rock, biscuits and gravy are like eating on the farm and D1 can’t get enough of their pancakes.

Between the atmosphere and food this is, by far, one of my favorite places to eat.  Besides, who doesn’t love hearing a jukebox play in the background while looking at pictures of Elvis, Marilyn and Ol’ Blue Eyes?
