Whenever Im in Cebu, I always visit AA for their Pochero.
I dont mind about the other dishes because its something that I can eat whenever, wherever....
But their Pochero is a different story... :D Every first timer in Cebu should try AA.

Just be aware that it is mostly outside eating. Expect hot during the summer, flies flying, sound of the road, etc. They have electric fan to counter it.

Fits anyone's budget perfectly too!

I am a regular customer of AA BBQ and started dining since 2001 when they were just yet a small barbecue place in Lahug. I witnessed how this main branch grew and eventually opened several branches within and outside Cebu City. Food is great especially the grilled pork belly, grilled kitong (one type of fish), tinolang lapu2x and pork sinigang. For ngohiong lovers, you won't be disappointed as their ngohiong is really yummy. They serve blended iced tea in huge glasses or in a pitcher. You should also try their fresh fruity drinks that come in big pitchers. Very refreshing!

AA BBQ is visible around cities of Cebu. There are branches in A.S Fortuna, in Mabolo, in Lahug, in Manalili, in Mango and many cities around Cebu. Some branches even offer birthday packages like the one I have tried in A.S Fortuna branch.

Their food is really good, servings are OK. However, it is like catching the best menu first. During night time, my guest from Manila was disappointed because he wasn't able to order the freshest fish during his dinner experience. There are soups of fish and clams, pork and chicken bbq, pancit canton, pork belly and a lot more. It is good for families, friends and couples.

If you are a person who avoids crowds and prefers luxury eating, then this place isn't an option to consider. The venue isn't the cleanest option since they are on outdoor setting. Comfort rooms aren't the cleanest as well.

You choose the raw meat to be cooked. Usually, the freshest are on mornings (as expected). Their food is not pricey compared to other fine dining and is good for birthdays and gatherings.

It has it's own unique taste...

I have been to other place with the same concept but AA always brings excellence to the taste of their finished products. My family always enjoy eating here and we can't stop telling our friend from other places to try it here since nobody has expressed any regrets thus far.

Keep up guys! And more power!
