Interesting as to why joerogo's post was flagged.  This really annoys me. It suggests that someone on these boards has something against him or Chubby's!  Too bad...........neither one of them are going away

Started visiting there this summer when we took Rt.15 to take my son to college in NY. It's everything the review states. I'm partial to North Carolina-style Que, but this place has a style of it's own! Wish it were a bit closer to home~

Jim,
 
Identifying flaggers would create a chilling effect, which would create an environment where individuals would be inhibited from flagging messages that they find offensive or otherwise outside the bounds of the forum's rules of conduct.
 
That said, I do suspect that flaggers are identified amongst the moderators and other insiders at Roadfood.com.
 
In this case, there appeared to be premature e-flagulation.

I don't want to go off on a rant here....well maybe a little one.....naw, I want the focus to remain on a great BBQ place run by a really cool dedicated guy.  
 
Tom/Chubby/Chewingthefat, congrats on the accolades you constantly receive for Chubby's BBQ.

I've reviewed this thread, read the reason for the flag and don't agree with it. So I've removed it.

Note the article in question is 3 years old but I doubt much has changed. Chubby's is about 90 minutes away from me and I like Tom's food but I rarely go to Maryland.

Politics...

On the other hand if some of you decide to travel out here let me know and I'll make an exception and join you.

Re:RoadFood Recommended BBQ 2014/02/20 12:03:37
Thank you all, Chubby's is a labor of love inspired by the Stern's "Roadfood" that I first read in 2000.
I realize there are a few non fans of Chubby's and me, jealousy I guess, there is one guy in particular, who has never been here, nor ever met me, he's a pitiful soul, but allowed his free speech and silly opinions.
Thanks again for your continued support, I'd very much like to have a get together here, food and drink on me!

Re:RoadFood Recommended BBQ 2014/02/21 11:47:07
Although Treetops won't see this because he said he has me blocked, but what he's talking about is a one-time voucher that's good for a year from the time it's purchased. I get half-off coupons like that in the mail and with inserts in the newspaper all the time. Among the poorly performing places that send these out are such failures as McCormick & Schmick's   Smith & Wollensky, Cheesecake Factory and P.F. Chang's.

And Micheal, once I get someone in here, they become regulars. Nice to see Treetop's interest in Chubby's!

The only thing better than Chubby's food is 1/2 price Chubby's food.
