It is my 2nd visit and first with my family. Try the baby back ribs instead of the regular large ribs. The baby back ribs is still relatively large and good for 3 to 4 adults. But it is more tender and juicier than the regular rib slab. Try all their side dishes, everything we tried are good. Then of... More

It's already coming up as the #1 resto in Subic and we decided to give it a go: it's no hype! Large servings, buttery-soft meat, family ambience... definitely a go-to spot when at the Freeport TIP: forget the chicken fillet burger... it's dry and tasteless... you're better off getting the spot's core cuisine: ribs, brisket, roast chicken

Thank you for coming all the way from Manila to Texas Joe's and thank you for the great review. We are glad you enjoyed all of the dishes and that you had a enjoyable dining experience.

Restaurant atmosphere: We dined outside table and it was nice set up. Building reminds us very much like Texas style restaurant in US. They also had bar outside as well so they can serve drinks for outside table customers quickley.

Ordered spare ribs rack. Super tender, juicy, the sauces (original and honey) are the best. Don't forget to order their baked potato or else you'll regret not trying it! Will go back there with Fam soon. Note: they have no service charge but you have the option to give them gratuity. You can select it at the bottom of the... More

This place is a good training ground for cooks. First they will assign you watering the plants then gardening. after some few months you will be wearing a chef's uniform. GREAT right?

We are regulars in Subic and love dining out. We also dine in so many places in Subic and Metro Manila. Restaurants usually welcome everyone who wants to eat regardless on the number of people who will eat. They give tables on a first come first served basis which is a proper seating rule. Me and my husband arrived here... More

I was quite surprised when I read this review especially as I have been a patron for over 7 years and, more recently, an owner of the restaurant. Given that the context of this review was so out of line with our normal reviews, I did an immediate investigation of the incident. What I learned was that when you visited... More

Very attentive staff and friendly. Even diners are selectively very behaved and courteous. Pork ribs are not as tender as expected. Bbq sauce needs more lime and molasses in their mixture and need to baste more on the meat. Serving size is perfect though. Mashed potato need more improvement other than using most likely powdered potato. Overall it is an... More
