The reviews I've read were all on point, Zubuchon lives up to the hype! Definite the best lechon in Cebu! It's one tasty succulent bite after bite of Cebu's best lechon! Don't forget to order their three-citrus tea to complement your order! Oh, and the food servers all look good! :-)

I tried CNT as well but i think this place is much better, its cleaner and the meat is less fatty. The price is more than reasonable and if you like spice as for the it and you wont be disappointed

This is the restaurant to go when you want to eat Cebu's famous lechon as they serve it in a myriad of ways that only Zubuchon can do. A must try are the following: classic lechon, Boneless lechon, and Tokwa't lechon. If you are more adventurous try their chili lechon. The ambience is good with a lot of natural light... More

I stop here every week, the lechon is always so good!! They stuff the pig with aromatics and cook it just right. I always overeat a get a kilo and am happily stuffed. I have had lechon all over Cebu and this place is the best for cleanliness, service quality and overall eat and go ease.

The menu is rather simple and if you are not into pork I would keep right away. If you are like me and love everything pig, you will be as happy as a pig in mud. It was the best fusion I have ever eaten. They stuffed a whole squid in pork. I love, love, love it. If you are... More

Very crispy skin but tasted more of a lechon kawali skin rather than a lechon. Meat was tender and juicy. Service was very fast and attentive. Best for me is still the cochinillo in Segovia, Spain. Will try CNT tomorrow.

We ate at their cebu airport branch for lunch. I don't agree that it is "the best pig ever". I can say the lechon of Davao is better. The service however is nice.

Finally, after many years waiting to come home I tried the Zubuchon in Mactan. The lechon was okay. We came right at 5:30 pm per employees recommendation due to fresh delivery of the lechon. When we got our order the skin was not that crispy, I was a bit disappointed. Then there's this Fish tacos that was mouthwatering deliciously paired... More

there are definitely more lechons that taste much better than Zubuchon. Try Talisay lechon like Lina's, etc. for a really authentic Cebu lechon experience.

First dine-in experience with friends from Manila and we were not disappointed. So far, the best lechon I've ever tasted.
