Had a great group meal here - we had a whole pig which was delicious. Also loved the squid stuffed with pork and the fried noodles. It's like an upmarket fast food chain with table service - but very clean and air conditioned. Good value too. Would definitely recommend a visit if you're travelling to Cebu! I think there are...

I ate here and I ordered the Lechon sandwich. The waiter told me thats not available. I so puzzled a lechon place with no lechon? This is what happens all over the Philippines. Yes they had lechon but not the lechon for a simple sandwich. Thats lame service. We had soup and some thing else, not a memorable dining experience

I stayed in Islands Stay in Mactan several times and there is a Zubuchon by the hotel lobby. I always my breakfast here and every food I order did not disappoint me. I love every item on the menu and I love the juices that they serve. I just wish they have a bigger serving of the juices. The price... More

I am an Anthony Bourdain fanatic. Even so, I reckon the claim that Zubuchon lechon is the best pig (or roast pork) ever is debatable. I doubt the lechon he tasted and the one I ate are the same. Don't get me wrong- Zubuchon lechon is absolutely delicious. You can taste the herbs that go into the pig. I just... More

This is one restaurant that I have been waiting to be in CDO. If you're in Cebu be sure to have a taste of Zubuchon. It's a totally different experience of an affordable lechon and definitely best in town!

Zubuchon has achieved worldwide fame after Anthony Bourdain's claim of it being "the best pig ever!" After trying it with our own tastebuds, we conclude that it does live up to its fame. We chose to go to the original restaurant branch. The place isn't really big but we got a table immediately. The service was fast, friendly and efficient.... More

Goooooddddd lechon! Fast service by friendly staff. Affordable, yummy, clean decent place to dine in. Make sure to try the Kamias shake- it goes really well with the lechon meal. And in case you still crave for it - you can go for a last taste of it at the airport waiting/dining area.

With a menu heavily based on the pit roast pig or lechon (which is a word for a method or style of cooking very similar to roasting), Zubuchon is the ideal first dinner in Cebu when DB and I landed at Friday night. Unfortunately, we mostly had the leftovers of the pig because the skin was not crispy anymore. Zubuchon... More

Serving one of the yummiest lechon in town and its very affordable. When in Cebu, make sure to get the authentic taste of lechon cebu.
