You have to try their ribs! The owner (Hawaiian?) let us stay to use wifi even when staff was packing up to head home

We went there several times already and each visit was consistent. Great ribs, delicious sauces and cute waitresses. Definitely feels like in the US. We will keep coming back.

In my opinion, this is the best place in the Philippines for real American style ribs. Ribs are not dry and don't depend on the sauce for flavor. They offer spareribs and baby back ribs. The baby back ribs are more tender while the spareribs are more flavorful. Fried potato skins and baked beans area also up to par. Value... More

Greetings Mikedeleon, Thank you for visiting Texas Joe's and especially thank you for the kind words. I am concerned, however, that your order of Beef Brisket was not up to our very high standards. Our brisket is famous for being extremely tender and juicy. We advertise that you can cut it with a fork and it melts in your mouth.... More

I would not call this place anything special but they do have good ribs (the spare ribs were a little dry). The service was OK but they would not make me a mix mango banana shake unless I ordered one of each.

Hello erikb1978, Thank you for your recent visit to Texas Joe's. I would like to explain to you why we were unable to give you a mango-banana combo shake. We process our fresh fruit by portioning it for a single drink, then freezing it. To accommodate your request, we would have had to use a 1/2 portion of the frozen... More

We loved all the food we ordered, the ribs were very tasty and the staff members were checking if everything went out well with our orders. The service could go a lot quicker but absolutely, our dinner was a two thumbs up!

I used to be a big fan of this place, as my review from a couple of years ago on Tripadvisor will testify. However, on my last 3 visits Texas Joe's has failed to deliver, and they have probably lost me as a customer now The once awesome ribs are now served luke warm, even when you request for them...

Hard to get good beef in the Philippines. It's good here. Ribs are very good also. Reasonable prices.
