National Cherry Blossom Festival in D.C./Chubby's BBQ/D.C. Area Sat, 04/2/11 6:35 PM (permalink)
First time at The National Cherry Blossom Festival in D.C.  It is really a beautiful site to see.  Hopefully Mother Nature will take the hint and let Spring begin.
 
Before I left home, my daughter who lives in Arlington called and told me to try a new route through Gettysburg, scenic and less traffic.  So I map out the route....it takes me right through Emmitsburg, MD, and right past Chubby's BBQ.  Here's the problem, it's Friday, it's Lent and my wife and I are trying to be good Catholics.  But I can't just drive by, I've been wanting to try Chubby's and meet Tom for years.
 
I checked out Chubby's website enough to recognize the place, no problem.  Right on the corner of Route 15 and Old Frederick Road.  But in reality, the smell of Q would have led me right to the door
 

 
As soon as I walk in I am greeted by Tom.  I introduced myself and it was like we were old friends.  I explained my eating dilemma to Tom, so he took me in the back to show me what I was missing
 

 
Thanks again Tom
 
My wife had a very good Caesar Salad.(Menu Description)Caesar Salad These salads are so good, one customer traded his for a new Mercedes! - 6.99
 
And we split an order of the garlic fries that Tom has been posting about.
 

 
These fries were amazing.  I mean, just look at them.
 
I had a cup(I don't think Tom knows what a cup is)of Cream of Crab Soup.(Menu Description)
Cream Of Crab Soup limit 2 bowls per customer.  this stuff is soooo good, many people cry at the last spoonful.Bowl - 7.25  cup - 5.75
 

 
The extremely tasty serving was huge, and filled with succulent chunks of crab.  Saying there was crab in every spoonful would be an understatement.
 
I also had a fried catfish sandwich, farm raised of course!  A very good, clean tasting sandwich that I topped with Chubby's "World Class" Volcano Sauce. 
 

 
The moist and tasty fish went very well with the spicy sauce.
 
So, all in all, I didn't do too bad with my meatless meal.  I told Tom that I would do an official RF review when I visited his place, but I am going to wait until I can post about the good stuff.  I will be using this new route for all my future trips.  Less traffic and Chubby's BBQ, what a combo
 
Here we are going over important RF business
 

 
This is what's on Tom's business card:
 

 
Believe me, he's all that, and a whole lot more
 
Serious, one of the nicest people you will ever meet, with a passion for putting out the best product he can.
