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.

Tender, juicy spare ribs

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... read 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

Being a bar-b-que snob, I really didn't expect much but was so happy to be WRONG. Service is friendly and accommodating and I especially appreciated plating for two when sharing an entree without extra charge. The owner, Gilbert Lee, makes the rounds greeting the patrons and showing Aloha his native state of Hawaii id renowned for. This place was a... More

I haven't been to a lot of places where ribs are sold, but right now, this place is the best place for ribs for me. The best thing about it is that they give you the choice of three sauce for the ribs. Original, honey and hot. (if im not mistaken) Their mashed potato is also one of the best... More
