As you can tell by this restaurant's logo, they specialize in the Filipino delicacy lechon (roast whole pig) and it is delicious.

I would surely recommend this restaurant to all my friends who would be visiting Cebu. The waitstaff were very accommodating. We tried the Boneless Lechon, the Zubu Buwad Platter and their Sinigang. Everything tasted perfect! The Zubu Buwad were made of dried fish.

I am not from Cebu but the resto was suggested to us by a purely Cebuano. The waiter who served us the LECHON didn't realize that he made me enter a whole new gastronomical world of lechon taste! Delicious! Heavenly! Enticing!

Visited the Escario Central branch. Came across this by chance where we stayed at a hotel beside it. The roast pig is yummy. It was well-marinated, well-roasted and tender. Service good improve a little though. The service staff was friendly but not attentive.

This restaurant has variety of choices and the pork there is superb. There were 5 of us and we ordered fried rice, mixed vegetables with pork, 2 different types of lechon and Toufu. All the dishes are delicious and not forget about the drinks too. The starfruit juice is very refreshing as well. Overall this is the best meal I... More

Found this because we asked locals where we could get good pork letchon. Was told about this place at Mango Square, near Robinson's mall. A meal for us both with soft drinks came to about 15 Dollars, if you can find it you should go.

Cebu lechon is famous for not needing any sarsa (sauce), and you definitely don't need it for this because it's tasty (although a tad bit too salty) on its own already. But don't just focus on the lechon! The pork sinigang was spectacular with its thick, sour broth and generous servings of meat! The kamias shake was really refreshing. The... More

I've tasted better lechon but Zubuchon - with its convenient location and affordable prices - is my go-to place when craving for this popular Cebuano food. I particularly love their value meals - individual portions with rice - since there are days when my friends and I don't feel like eating big servings of lechon. I also appreciate that the... More

Not outstanding lechon but good enough. Place was nice and the ambiance, very relaxed. Kamias shake is a must-try, something different. Attentive staff.
