So cheap and good if you like BBQ cebu style. Parking space is very limited so best to come a little earlier than meal time

This is the #1 on my list of places to eat as a "balikbayan" (Filipino living abroad and coming back for a visit)! Went here on my first day back in Cebu/Mandaue and I was 110% satisfied! My favourites are chicken & pork barbecue, chorizo,...More

If you're looking for cheap eats to fill you up , then this is the place. I tried the pork BBQ, pork chorizo, chicken BBQ, and puso rice and all were OK though I find the pork tastier than the chicken. The place is quite...More

Their BBQ is definitely on the sweeter side, but still delicious none the less. You also have an option of getting the spicy version of their BBQ sauce. I recommend that you try their large barbeques with the spicy sauce and the grilled chicken breasts.

It’s only meat (and fish and rice). But it’s all very nice and pretty cheap. For the foreigners (like us): 1. Just take the meat you want and give it to the bbq people. 2. Take a seat. 3. Someone will come and ask what...More
