In the aim of getting you delicious ice cream as quickly as possible, we're teaming up with our friends at Lucky's Last Chance ( just a block away from us ) to sell half gallons tonight in a limited run test. There are three flavors on tap tonight: Vanilla, Dark Chocolate, and Sea Salted Caramel. You can place your orders here from 3pm to 8pm. First come, first served!

We're still working on our long-term delivery system, which is coming along slowly but surely as Chris attempts to balance raising children, writing code, and maintaining sanity, in that order.

Today marks our third anniversary!

We had a lot of fun stuff planned to celebrate the occasion, so we're a little bummed that we can't share the love with any of you in person. Regardless of everything going on right now, we sincerely appreciate your support and we can't wait to kick off year #4.

Once we're able to convene with the public again, prepare your faces for the return of ice cream hoagies.

March 18, 2020

OK folks, how would you like to stock up on something more delicious than toilet paper?

We're considering making heaping HALF GALLONS of ice cream that could be summoned directly to your door. If that sounds like something you need in your life, please tell us what flavors you're missing the most.

We hope to have more to share soon!

Sadly, conditions have shifted and we no longer feel comfortable remaining open. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Tubby Robot will be closed until further notice.

Stay safe out there, everyone! We'll see you on the other side.

March 13, 2020

In the aim of maintaining the safety of our patrons and staff, Tubby Robot has transformed into Anti-Pandemic Mode.

Orders will now be taken and deployed directly through our tactical windows! The front entry has been locked and rendered effectively impenetrable! Every descriptive sentence will now end with an exclamation point!

It's March 10th, otherwise known as MAR10 day around here. We're celebrating by playing the one and only Super Mario Bros. on WALL-O-VISION all week long!
