My son said that after eating their chicken for lunch. Chicken was very tender and juicy though skin was mostly burnt.

“There's more to Penong's than barbeque”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014 via mobile

Spicy (just add php10) chicken and pork barbeque were my perennial favorites, but one can never go wrong in choosing their other specialties as well like crispy (but fatty) isol and pinakbet.

“value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014

Inasal/inato may not be Davao's specialty but we liked the chicken and pork barbeque here. We also tried the pinakbet which we loved. The place is clean (we visited the branch at Toril) and service is quick (they have unlimited rice, all you need to do is clap your hands to call the server's attention) but make sure you don't come here too hungry or you might lose your temper waiting for the food. The food takes long to prepare so come here while you still have the energy and patience to wait.
