Mark Antonation has been eating his way up Federal Boulevard for close to a year, reporting from every vinyl booth, walk-up window and bar stool where food is served. This week, he made it to the original Bubba Chinos at 160 Federal, which serves all food on styrofoam, whether or not you're eating in. And everything comes with a big side of atmosphere...

Danr74 appreciates Mantonation's efforts -- and intestinal fortitude:

This particular piece may not make me want to dine at Bubba Chinos (outside of certain extenuating circumstances), but it has inspired me to comment on "A Federal Case" series as a whole rather than simply remaining an anonymous reader. Frankly, I think that the whole thing is awesome; I love the ambition, the humor, and the honest glimpses into the places I'd so easily drive past on my way somewhere more outwardly welcoming or more vocally hyped.

One meal at a Bubba Chinos is all that I need in my lifetime. THE WORST in Denver.

@GRAMMATO No... the owner himself shut a few of his branches down because it got to the point where he wasn't able to adequately monitor what was going on in all of them.
