The Philly cheesesteak sandwich was very disappointing: bland, dry, tough. Not worth the money. I doubt I would ever come back to this place. The waitstaff seemed distracted - service tended to be slow. I ordered ice cream for dessert and the waiter forgot to provide a spoon. Water and drink refills don't come automatically - I needed to call the waiter's attention. Condiments to the burger and fries, like catsup, have to be requested and not provided upon serving of food. And to top it off the waiter nearly doused us with water when he slipped carrying a tray of water. And to think there were only 2 other occupied tables when we had lunch so they were not particularly busy. I guess that's why they don't have a lot of business - tasteless expensive food served by inept staff.

My mom and I were surprised at how big the portions were despite being a teensy bit pricey.

The place itself was spacious and impressively designed too.

I ordered the grilled chicken sandwich. At first I expected like a normal-looking sandwich on a plate but instead got a whole round chopping board of it. So filling! 128523

Their baby back ribs are to die for as well! 128523

I found the patty of the burger to be rele stiff. Had a hard time chewing it. Lol perhaps it's a great place for true NBA fans like my brother that I accompanied during that lunch. I wasn't satisfied with my 395php meal.

They definitely don't want the food here. 128542

We had dinner and ordered bay shrimp ceviche for appetizer feeling 128170, three cheese pizza, bow tie pasta and another pasta. I forgot. lol.

127844127844127844-It was okay. A little spicy tho because it has chopped jalapeños. The plating I don't like. 128533

127829127829127829-Pizza was not a favorite. 128542 Perhaps the blue cheese over powers everything.

127837127837127837-Bow tie was 128078. It's dry and very bland.

127837127837127837-The other pasta which is in red sauce was my favorite. 9786️ Very tasty and full of tomatoes. Yum!

The place is really big and decors were a plus. But I guess they need to improve on their food.

Witnessed my beloved DLSU lose to FEU was terrible 128557128557128557

Good thing I was distracted with the food:

Peanutbutterness 11088110881108811088
Pistachio ice cream with nuts and whipped cream and peanut butter! Although it was green (sign of the pistachio), it tasted purely peanut butter! Like Reese's cups were inside the drink! Only had a little just because of the calories 128539

Chicago style hotdog 110881108811088
Regular tasting hotdog sandwich for me with lots of pickle relish. Basically that's it.

Would've loved it if they had nachos 128528

Nothing unusual. I thought one could never go wrong in ordering hotdogs or sausages. Unfortunately for me, i wasn't satisfied with what i got served. The new york hotdog sandwich didn't pass the standard i was expecting considering that the resto is supposed to be 'american' from its projection which is supposed to serve good burgers, hotdogs and sandwiches. Yes, the burger wasn't satisfying either. The ground beef patty seems to have no beef character on it.

Isn't this the saddest looking plate of salad you have ever seen? It was for me!

NBA Cafe is a promising concept. There are dozens of video walls showing basketball games on every wall.

We went here for dinner on a weeknight. It was close to empty. Bad sign.

It took many attempts to flag a waiter down. When he came over we said, "Um, menus please?" Lol. I think the waiters here are all first-timers!

We ordered a salad (pictured), burger and roast chicken. We also ordered their bottomless Diet Coke.

Their Coke is from a vendo machine. The time we went, the machine had no carbonation. Flat soda! No fizz! Imagine a glass of Coke that you left on a table for a day and put in the ref. Yucky syrup!! We complain and they replace it but no dice - still bad. I think they only had one vendo machine. We ask to cancel it (because it was un-drinkable) and we were told no way Jose. We cannot cancel it because we ordered it already. GREAT! 200++ pesos down the drain for two bottomless sodas that we cannot even drink! So sad.

Salad came and it looked like crap. Seriously. The chef needs to take classes in plating food. To be fair, that ugly plate tasted OK. It was not as bad as it looked.

Chicken came and was dry and forgettable.

The burger came and it was the savior of the night. It was big, thick and meaty. Not a bad burger. Not the best but surely a notch above average.

It took ten years to flag a waiter down for the bill. So frustrating!!

I will never be going back here again.

The place was pretty neat and the service was good. However, the food did not meet our expectation. It was a bit bland for our taste. We we're not able to finish our food and mind you, that doesn't happen a lot! I'm a "finish whatever is on your plate" kind of girl. It was pricey too.

Will not be coming back to this place anytime soon.

Maybe for a bottle of beer, but not for the food. 128542128549128557128546

Nice ambiance, if you're looking for place to hangout, this is good. Food is average but a bit pricey in my opinion. The hickory burger in the picture is around PhP400.

I didn't expect too much from this resto, until I tasted their food! Grabe 128525

We had the Creamy Mac and Cheese, Hickory Smoked Bacon Burger and the Baby Back Pork Ribs.

Their Creamy Mac and Cheese were really creamy, but for me there's nothing special with the taste, I wanted it more cheesy. I was a bit disappointed hehe. If you see the serving it looks small, it ranged around 300-400 pesos (I forgot) but it's so filling! There's even two of us who shared it and we could barely finish it.

The Hickory Smoked Bacon Burger, grabe it was sooo yummy 128525 For me it tastes better than most of the burger joints in the metro. I highly recommend this one. The lettuce even taste great! It's like all the ingredients were given a magical flavor (magical?) lol 128541

Lastly, the Baby Back Pork Ribs. You guys should try this one 128077O.M.G 128563 The serving was so big it could feed 3-4 persons depends on how monster you are. Kidding! Ang dami nyang meat! And they're so juicy and tender and chewy 128055128525 My instant favorite. Even the corn and the veggies, everything was delicious. 10084

Moving on with the food. The staff were also very nice and attentive! They also just put in mind your orders, no listing :)

The place and ambience, just like its name, is sooo wide and bright like a basketball court. There were jerseys and trophys. They have lots of TVs where they play some basketball games (in mute) and a live TV with sounds on. The games are just background hehe.

Their CRs are clean and nice. They play music in there too.

This place is so huge I swear. I'd like to seat next time on the window area where you can clearly see the view outside. It looks like the resto in My Love From Another Star where Cheon Song Yi almost drank the wine that'll make her unconscious. (naisingit pa) 128514

This place is sooo great can't wait to come back 128525

The place is great. Tv monitors are all over the place. The big screen is also great. Food was a bit pricy and does not blow my taste buds away. All in all im giving it 3 stars simply because of the ambiance :)
