The first thing you see is the long queue waiting for a table. We ordered mussels, marinated chicken, hamburger, and onion rings. The onion ring batter was too coarse for me but the missus loved it. The food was good overall but because the restaurant is so small it felt like you were being packed like sardines. I would have... More

Recommended for people who have a tight budget and willing to wait in line. This place gets packed during lunch and early dinner. BBQ is typical local fare nothing to rave about.

The food is damn delicious but a bit pricey, sizzling back rib must eat!!! Bed to queue for 15-20mins.

My family and friends recommended the restaurant and we took our time to also get in line to taste their famous BBQ... Its best to arrive early if hungry. We waited for some time to be seated. We ordered their famous ribs - worcestershire spare ribs, honey mustard spare ribs and their grilled shrimps. In fairness, their order is fast.... More

We were intrigued by the perpetual line of patrons waiting to be seated at this corner restaurant so we went early the following day to beat the crowd and have lunch. We had their highly recommended baby back ribs and bbq chicken with a sode order of gambas corn. The ribs was falling off the bone although was still a... More

This is my all time favorite restaurant in Boracay. I've been going to this joint for the last 5 years and I never get tired of their food, even if I had to wait to be seated. What I had this time was the Heart Attack meal, which consists of pork belly, bangus, bacon skewers, sausages and aligue rice. So... More

This is one of those places which I wouldn't mind paying to dine. The price is really really reasonable for a good plate of baby back ribs and rice. I believe it's filipino food? The staff are very attentive and efficient. Good food good prices!

We tried the Chicken BBQ and the BBQ Ribs. Both orders tasted good and were served hot and newly cooked. But I feel the price has increased a lot compared to the last time I tried this establishment years ago.

Food took 30 minutes to come, the waiter was grumpy & annoying. We were so hungry by the time the food came, and when the food came it was horrible. We had the ribs, chicken BBQ and the chicken parmesan. All sucked.

The ribs are fall off the bone but nothing you can't find at a good bbq joint in north america. But no complaints as it is a good rib. But the pork belly with the bbq sauce is unique and really delicious. The lemonade was also good but not a must try. The sides that come with the dishes are... More
