texas joe’s in subic y’all!

In places on February 16, 2012 at 4:13 pm

it was a spontaneous valentine’s date. the original plan was to pick up wham burgers and picnic in UP or the quezon circle. we ended up driving to subic (!) but still felt a burger would be nice. had read something about texas joe’s having a decent burger so we decided to check it out.

the restaurant is along waterfront drive, a pretty part of subic. it had a good crowd when we got in, always a good sign. the menu looked quite interesting. straight out of a texas barbecue joint (at least, that how i imagine it). so of course, a burger – or bubba burger on their menu (P295)

this was indeed a decent burger. not great. maybe not even very good. especially not at that price. but a good option – filling, tasty enough. and those fries were really nice.

we also had the ribs (3-boned with 2 sides for P385)

this had great flavor! pretty much what i would expect after watching all these top chef shows about barbecue, taste-wise at least. but it was just this side of tough and that was a little disappointing. i can’t tell though if the trouble was their technique or the pig. but this was pretty much worth the price as it was a hefty portion. and the sides – we chose coleslaw and a 6-inch corn bread loaf – were nice.

the main reason actually for coming back to texas joe’s is their barbecue sauce

original barbecue, habanero hot, and carolina honey. all sooooooo good! all the sauces were pitch perfect – tang and spice and sweet and salt. this is a true must-try! i already know what i’ll order next – the brisket. and we’ll make sure to smother it with a LOT of this beautiful sauce
