Visited this restaurant that offers both outdoor and air condition sitting. Over ordered without realizing how huge each order would be ... enough to serve 4-5 people. All of the order was too salty for me but did taste good. I believe they have unlimited rice.

This restaurant serves chicken barbecue among other grilled dishes. We also liked their seafood platter. They also serve unlimited rice. The food is very affordable too!

Not our first time to eat here and will keep on coming back because of their pinakbet.. Tastes better than just the ordinary Pinakbet. Customer service is inconsistent but one thing we notice to be consistent - good customer service of the guards! Keep it up, guards! Maybe, it would be better too if you do an audit as to... More

Penong's is our go to place when we are craving for chicken bbq. Love the flavor of the chicken and the spicy sauce that goes with it. Mostly we just eat there for their chicken bbq because i'm not a big fan of their other dishes. Service is generally good each time we are there, servers are attentive and nice.

Careful in choosing a restaurant! Our experience in Penong's was very bad. I ordered for delivery. They delivered to my house the foods, and I also ordered fruit salad for our dessert, it was old, spoiled, smelling bad. Strong odor when i opened it! What if i did not check it? My kids will eat it.

Clean, cheap and good location. Not friendly staff and we had to wait for almost an hour before we got our order. When it was served, it was lacking and we had to wait again for minutes before we ate. Serving is small. Don't be deceived by the unlimited rice. Place needs good management. I used to come here during... More

Some of the grilled items are overcooked and too charred. Generally, taste is okay. Open air restaurant, guests dining in open area are exposed to pollution.

We went there last Sunday to eat lunch before heading out to watch the Sinulog grand parade. We knew that they don't have the "puso"(rice wrapped in coconut leaves) w/c is the best match for bbq so we decided to buy outside. When we ordered we informed the waiter that we will not order rice because we have our "puso".... More

Probably the best grilled chicken in town. The meat is tender, juicy and not dry. There are plenty of other dishes that you can try but beware because not all of them are worth it. Never order the ribs because the portion is quite small with a not so friendly price tag. They also have an air-conditioned room, sadly it... More
