Texas Joe's House of Ribs is an authentic American Smokehouse restaurant. We feature slow smoked US Pork Spare Ribs and Pork Baby Back Ribs. We also smoke US Certified Angus Beef brisket and US Pork Shoulder as well as Chicken. We feature several USDA Choice Steaks also. All of our food is prepared fresh using our own unique recipes. Over the years we have become a favorite place to eat in the Olongapo/Subic Bay area.

Bang for the Buck!

Although TJ's not the cheapest but you really get what you pay for. I love the flavors coming from their steak and it's very very good.

Those were the best short ribs I've ever eaten in my life. They had a home made habanero barbeque sauce that was so good, I think I'll dream about it for the rest of my life. It's worth a trip from Manila to eat at Texas Joe's!! No kidding!!!

After a long drive from Metro Manila, this place was such a welcome respite. Upon arrival at the parking area on a Monday afternoon, the place looks deserted from outside. I felt like I was in a western movie ;) Upon entering the cool interior, I felt relieved. The place looked welcoming and the staff were accommodating. We were immediately... More

Juicy, tender, and with perfect sauce combination... definitely one of the best spare ribs I've ever tasted. The place got enough parking spaces. The ambiance inside the restaurant is good. The waitresses are in cow girl's outfit and serves well.

Real Texas barbecue. The sauce is so good that we brought some home. The rib portions were huge. Glad we only had a half rack.

It's our first time to eat here. My brother wanted some steak and we saw tarpaulins in Subic advertising Texas Joe's so we look for it. When we came in there, the ambiance is pretty cool, it felt like we're in a Western country. The waiter/ waitress are in their cowboy costumes ready to give courteous service. The food is... More

We celebrated the birthday of my father-in-law in Texas Joe's last February 21. The restaurant had plenty of parking space. We were a group of 12 and the staff didn't make us wait for our table. Ambience inside is that of an old western saloon. There is a billiards table for those who want to play while waiting for their... More

The ribs here are great, and the best I have tried in The Philippines. The restaurant has a nice, relaxed and family friendly atmosphere - we always end up eating here every night when in Subic.

Every Hot Air Balloon event, from Clark Pampanga its been our tradition to head out to Subic and spend a night or two to see the Duty Free Shops. The first time we ate at Texas Joe's, we were hooked. By the entrance, they had wooden horses for kids to go cowboy. Inside, there's a corner where you can play... More

Went on a busy valentines day evening. The service staff did a great job of telling us how long it would be, and actually seated us much earlier. They were generally very attentive throughout despite the busy evening. The only mis-step was when they brought the bill - I liked the fact that the tip was optional and we could... More
