“Finally a salad!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

I have been volunteer teaching in Samar. I stay in Tacloban with a Filipino family and found my first salad in the 23 days I 've been here. I had the shrimp and mango salad and a San Mig Light. All salad ingredients were fresh. Not many shrimp but okay for lunch. The service was very good. The restaurant was clean. The menu is extensive with mostly American fare. I will return since I will be here another month. Prices are reasonable.

“Fil-Am staples menu”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

Visited for lunch and dinner whilst working in Tacloban.

Pros - All the staples are on the menu, and are pretty well cooked, wifi available.
Cons - Not everything was available to order.

Uncle Sam is a solid choice for a meal, nothing fancy, just what you expect at prices that are comparable to other places.

“Awesome burgers!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013 via mobile

Ive been a coming to this place time and again. Their burgers are the bestbin town. I would even say its the best in the region. Their waiters are polite and doesnt bug you when you are talking to someone... unlike other restaurants. Lol

The place is cozy tho small. The ambiance is awesome. If you are looking for american burgers, you should try them out.
