BEST BBQUE

I was told Penong's serves very good chicken barbecues so I just had to try it. However when I got to the restaurant it felt like I was in Davao's version of Mang Inasal. When the chicken was served it was unevenly cooked. Service was okay. Penong's is not excellent but it's worth a visit when you're looking for a... More

Crowded when we went on a Tuesday night...service was average. My partner had the grilled shrimp and I had the two pork chops. The shrimp wasn't a large amount but was cooked ok. The pork chops were decent size and cooked ok as well. Overall, this is an average place to grab a dinner or lunch, but there's nothing that... More

I don't see the reason most of the Dabawenyo's go to this place. There's no significant difference with the taste of the food of Penong's from other local bbq restaurants but the prices are higher. I tried eating here several times in different locations but it's not really gonna be one of the restaurants that I will be going to... More

If you are a Barbecue lover, whether it be chicken or pork, like me, then this is the place for us. I personally love their Chicken Barbecue Inato Meal. Back when I was still working at this place that was just walking distance from a Penongs branch, we would always order from them if we had to do overtime work.... More

It's exactly as the title above says. Their marinade is nothing special and the rice tastes cheap and unenjoyable. Pricing is okay and the unli rice thing might be favorable for heavy eaters but the flavor leaves a lot to be desired. Service is fast despite being almost always crowded during lunchtime and dinner.

Chicken BBQ tasted good which is normal in Davao. The Baby Back Ribs also tasted good but there are some parts of the meat that did not taste as good as the exposed surface. I did not like the lemonade-cucumber juice because it tasted so artificial. The staff were courteous but needs more training. They made three mistakes with our... More

A new friend (somewhat kind my aunt already) treat us here, their food is good for its price. Mostly who are dining there are friends and family. The waiter though right away asked for auntie's "senior card" when she's not a senior yet. It's not nice to do that, you should ask if she's a senior not immediately say or... More

The service was good and the waiters and waitresses were nice and friendly, and the special feature of this restaurant (there are quite a few around town) is that if you order unli(mited) rice, you just clap your hands twice and you'll get a top up. Personally feel that the baby back ribs were extremely worth it (~135php) - the... More
