First things first: The Original Chubby's outpost that just opened in Westminster is not officially related to the original Chubby's, the iconic Mexican joint that grew out of the Chubby Burger Drive Inn on West 38th Avenue, which Stella Cordova bought in 1967 and where she kept working four four decades. She passed away shortly after her hundredth birthday a few years ago; that Chubby's is now in the hands of one of her grandsons, Danny.

Another grandson, Julian Cordova, opened the first Original Chubby's in Thornton in 1987, trademarking the name and serving up variations on the old family recipes. He opened a second second Original Chubby's at 1385 Santa Fe Drive last year, and then a location in Westminster last week.

Isn't that "reopens"? There used to be a Chubby's on the 7300 block of N Federal that was in a crappy old abandoned Long John Silver's building.
