Visited zubuchon in mango several days ago. I like the crispy lechon skin but agree to other reviews that pork itself wasn't juicy. Their ice tea is good though. Price is above average(250-300). The overall dinning experience was really good the staff was very attentive, clean bright light dinning area.

First time to try their Zubuchon (original) and was expecting to be overly gratified by their lechon since it’s very famous in Cebu City but was NOT. Pros: - Attentive service attendants - Pork skin is very crispy and flavorful. - Fresh Juice drinks are good. Cons: - I think that the meat was not that juicy enough. - I’ve... More

We arrived at the restaurant on the way to the airport at about 10am; but sadly, they had no lechon! Thankfully they confirmed they would have some at their branch in the departure lounge and we grabbed some Lechon sisig and takeaway. Delicious. Still delicious.

We visited zubuchon at around 10:10am, and we ordered the famous zubuchon lechon. The crew informed us that they don't have a ready lechon to serve so we waited for almost 2hrs for our order. I just want to suggested to zubuchon management. they should not open the store if they don't have stock of the main menu which is... More

Thank you for your visit to Zubuchon. For most of our stores, lechon is delivered at around 11am for the luncheon meal rush and again at about 5:30pm for the dinner crowd. This addresses some 92-95% of our customers. And when there is no lechon available (which surprisingly, only makes up 20% or less of our sales), there are some... More

Visited with friends and the pork was fantastic, while the waiter repeated our order back, the kitchen still got it wrong - was a little frustrating but life is never going to be perfect

Due to the amount of pork that I ate my blood pressure just went berserk. I felt dizzy and felt numbness in my limbs. Word of advice eat and enjoy the delicious food but your health is always the priority.

Food is yummy, wanted to try out their seasonal dishes, but always ended up being out of stock or phased out.

This chain of restos feel like they're catering only to the non Cebuano crowd who oh and ah over Cebu lechon no matter how insanely expensive they are. The locals are not impressed! Nothing extra ordinary about their fare, and with the atrocious prices, I'd say they are rip offs. Only thing good there is their calamansi shake. Thumbs down!

Thank you for your visit to Zubuchon. Please allow me to state some facts. Zubuchon's customer base is made up of approximately 80-85% local customers, with more than 80% repeat clients at that. We also cater to local and international tourists as well. As for the prices you state are "insanely expensive" and "atrocious", I would like to point out... More

Description
We serve roast pork as the main dish, with nearly three dozen other Filipino dishes that are either include roast pork or are pork-free complementary dishes. We offer an extensive seafood menu in three of our restaurants as well as many vegetable dishes and natural local fruit shakes. This is the roast pork that Chef and TV Host Anthony Bourdain declared as "The Best Pig, Ever!" On his No Reservations episode on the Philippines. For a taste of Filipino cuisine, in clean, bright comfortable surroundings, visit us at any of our branches in Cebu.
