Excellent customer service and food. Had asked for the best seller dish and was recommended beef brisket sandwich. The service attendant even asked for feedback. Would highly recommend 5 stars.

Went to Texas Joes because I read a review best steak in the Philippines. The place is nice and clean and the service is fast, maybe a little too fast. I ordered the cowpoke salad ( just a regular salad with lettuce tomato cucumber. The...lettuce was fresh and crispy and the dressing was good. My main course was the rib eye steak. It was cooked exactly as I requested and came with green beans and a baked potato. the waitress informed me that I was eligible for another side that was included but I didn't want anything else and didn't notice what my options were. The steak was very good not great because there was no seasonkng. I'm also used to have fresh cracked black pepper. The establishment is very clean and the aircon works great. The wait staff are friendly. Steaks are to be served on a hot plate mine was not. I usually ask for one but it had slipped my mind . Overall a good experience I would go back again if I visited Subic. Price for one was 1750 for one I only drank waterMore

Appreciate your review. Sorry about the fresh cracked pepper which we do have because I too prefer my food with cracked pepper. I am sorry about your plate temperature. It should have been served on a heated plate. I will reinforce that. Thanks again, Ed

We had baby back ribs with mash potato and beans. Also pork chops with corn and rice. Also buffalo nuggets in original sauce. Everything was delicious. The staff were great on a busy Sunday afternoon. Cannot ask for anything more from the team. Thank you.

I don't live for BBQ like some of my friends but do know great ones from mediocre and this place competes with anyone anywhere. The true test iof a BBQ joint is in their "baked beans" and Texas Joe's were awesome, amongst the best anywhere....Serivings were humungous and service was super firendly and spot-on (thet onee negative view below... guy must have had a chhip on his shoulder.) And good value to boot. You're in Subic Bay, you MUST go to Texas Joe's. Otherwise you haven't been to Subic Bay.More

We were not allowed to sit inside because one of us did not have a mask, which I could understand but half the guests did not have theirs on because they were early. We sat outside which was fine. We all ordered drinks and they...were just ok. We then ordered our meals. No bread or anything like that to munch on. I got the half baby back ribs, Cole slaw, and corn bread. That was good in that it had real pieces of corn inside. The ribs were just Ok, but for over in the Philippines, they were good. The slaw just just ok. All in all, is was maybe a 5 out of 10.More

Food took a little over an hour. Lots of flies. Servers don’t care until you nag them multiple times. Food serving is ridiculous also. Yeah the ribs are okay, but the sides are good for 2 bites. Its that small. Not proportional to the amount...of ribs. Then they have the audacity to charge the same price of 700+ pesos. Stay away from this place. They used to be good but i think after the pandemic, they got lazy. Stay away. Plenty of other places in subicMore

Forget Meatplus, Texas Joe's is the bomb!!! Food was awesome, 11 stars out of 10! Food prep might take long because of the meat being grilled to perfection but it's worth the wait! Will surely visit TJs again and again! Place can be busy at...lunch and dinner especially on weekends. Parking spaces available. Can choose to dine inside or outdoors. Price point depends on your financial position lol! but it's fairly priced because of their serving size. If you are a tourist visiting Subic, this is a must place to eat at.More

No wonder why this resto is ranked numba 1. Aside form the cozy country ambiance, the food tasted great. Though the steak is far from perfect as there are some tough parts. I'm not sure if its just mine or all. The place is filled...with people and waiting lines are long esp. during holidays and wekends. No reservation, so be early or bear the lines. Definitely a place to go towhen you visit Subic. Don't forget your vaccine card.More

Got my order after an hour of wait. Followed up for four times. There wasn’t even a lot of people when we ordered. All they could do was apologize. On top of that it took 20 minutes for them to provide the bill. Salmon was...dry and overcooked. Ribs sampler was great and so was the chicken quesadilla. Not worth the time I wasted for the quality of food and service.More

Menu price is like 650 for medium steak 🥩 and 490 below the others from chicken buffalo wings to the steak they served good portions so if you’re getting grilled steak get small for one person still big portions for me
