Ok folks- this place is the real deal. For sure you need to try it. My husband highly recommends the Nobby burger with cheese skirt and I devoured the turkey on sourdough with avocado. Oh, and the large fries are really large - serves 2 or 3 easy. Amazing place...it is very small and very casual with plastic chairs and... More

The burgers were larger than I thought they would be :). I really liked the cheese skirt on the burger. Also, the shakes were really good as well! Definitely will come back again

" The Nobby " Melt in your mouth bun , crisp fresh produce, prime meat & "CLASSICALLY" melted cheese . Real fries (not shoestring). No nonsense atmosphere, but cozy. Bring Cash

The dinning area inside is small, and a small dining area outside. The trade off is the huge taste and size of their burger's. The atmosphere is like a mom and pops burger joint. By far the best burger in Chico.

Great burgers and fries! Nice to sit outside and eat on a sunny day. Love the cheese on their burgers. Reasonable prices too.

The tiny burger spot is usually crowded at lunch time so the service can be a bit backed up, but the wait is worth it for the cheeseburgers which usually have a little "skirt" of fried cheese around the edges. Sadly, the fries are a disappointment and the drinks are in bottles and cans, but a Styrofoam cup of ice... More

Tried to go several times always crowded. Super excited to go and was really disappointed. Fries cold, Burger dry, just ok. And no bathrooms but really wouldn't go again. Bummer

Over and over, new eateries prop up claiming to have the best burgers in Chico, blah, blah blee. Anyone who has had the pleasure of a Nobby's meal will rave about the best burgers in northern Cali. For years the folks at Nobby's have consistently produced a good range of sandwiches, fries, and awesome burgers rivaled by none. You are... More

One of the best burgers, covered with cheese. Fries, onion rings and chicken sandwich also great. Only negative is Styrofoam cups.

My favorite place for a cheeseburger in chico. I see firefighters eat here. The burger is huge. It is bigger than the bun. Bring cash. I get a shake also. Don't worry about calories. Seating is limited but worth the watch of people coming and going. It's a Chico iconic place to visit and ears goog burgers. Priced reasonable. Fries... More
