Hubba

24 North Main St., Port Chester, NY - (914) 939-7271

Hubba, which used to be called Pat's Hubba Hubba and, before that, Texas Quick Lunch, is a diner that always has been known for its hot chili. Few people come for chili all by itself (although it can be ordered solo); the house specialty is a chili dog, known hereabouts as a Texas hot. Actually, there is a full menu written in permanent marker on white paper plates tacked to the wall, but I would reckon that 9 out of 10 meals served are hot dogs blanketed with no-bean, ground-beef chili and garnished with crisp chopped onions. It is a wanton combo – hot, greasy, messy, and beguiling in a Roadfood sort of way. Those who need more sustenance than a brace of chili dogs get chili cheese fries on the side. To drink: Hubba water, which is tap water tinted pink by a dash of Hawaiian Punch.

Hubba's chili dogs are famous as the kill-or-cure conclusion to a night of heavy drinking. The restaurant stays open until just before dawn on weekends. No wider than an apartment hallway with only about a dozen counter seats, it is known also for its eye-boggling décor: every available piece of wall and ceiling is wallpapered with dollar bills.
