My highschool friend included me as secondary sponsor in her entourage. The wedding took place in Subic and being a good, dutiful friend that I am, I, together with the boyfriend went a day ahead.

We arrived in our hotel at exactly 2:30 in the afternoon and I was already on a beastmode because I was starving. The last food that I ate was my dinner the night before so just imagine how hungry I was. However, the funny thing was, no matter how starving I am, my oc-ness kicked in and I went to fix our things first before heading to Texas Joe's.

It's a good thing that the restaurant is just a stone away from Bayfront Hotel, a 2-minute walk I think. I have read a lot of good reviews here that's why I was really excited to try their food. I love good ribs and I was craving for quesadillas so this is a perfect place for me. The boyfriend and I were not surprised that we were the only customers when we went in because it was just 3:50pm. Too late for lunch and too early for dinner. What surprised us more was when the clock hit an hour after, people were starting to fill in the resto. A good indication that this place serves good food, I told myself.

Anyway, here's a rundown of our experience.

AMBIANCE AND PLACE
Cowboy-ish! The boyfriend and I goofed around when we saw that they have two wooden horses outside. I had my photo taken there, I didn't care if I looked like an idiot big girl riding a small wooden horse. Haha 128517 Anyway, the whole place is big. They have al fresco area and spacious dining area inside too. If I were to compare it too TGIFriday's in Rob Ermita, I think Texas Joe's is a lot bigger. It's not cramped, tables are a bit far away from each other thus providing privacy among the diners. They also have a small function room for meetings or small get togethers.

LOCATION:
Texas Joe's is located inside Subic Freeport Zone. Along Waterfront Road. Easy to find!

SERVICE:
They were in chikahan mode when we arrived, I guess it's because there's no customers during that time. They quickly accommodated and ushered us to our table. I forgot the name of our server but she was sweet and really accommodating.

FOOD:
My favorite part!! Oh Good Lord! I can't thank Him enough for good food. Not because I was starving but because they really do have yummy food. Our tummies were so bondat when we left the place that we can barely walk and laugh at the same time. 128540

Here are the food that we ordered:

BABY BACK RIBS- they can give Racks a good run of its money. So tender, flavorful and filling. I was expecting a big serving and I was right. Half rack of it can be shared by two. Basta. Masarap siya. Smokey. Sweet. Yummy. It surpassed my love for Red Baron's and Porch.

SMOKED CHICKEN- the boyfie enjoyed this too. Big serving of chicken and corn on the side. Juicy and flavorful too. Not too tangy. Just the right taste.

BEEF QUESADILLA- now this is the bomb!! I have never seen and tasted a quesadilla as thick and yummy as this! True story. Ang sarap sarap sarap sarap. Hindi tinipid sa beef and cheese. I know some resaurants that offer delicious quesadillas too but it's not like this. Makapal talaga siya because of beef. Unlike others, this one is worth every cent.

MOCHA SHAKE- heavenly good! Tasted like melted mocha ice cream. Thick and creamy.

Bonus part? They have NO service charge. And because I was more than satisfied, I left them a 10% sc for the super yummy food and service. They deserve it.

So since its valentines tomorrow my lavidabs and I decided to go driving In subic early this morning to actually beat the record of our 242km driving his Porsche (I'm not bragging about his car so be good to me hehe128513 even though I post my pic geeeh) anyway after grabbing so many chocolates in duty free, we decided to eat lunch at this house of ribs

Serving is big so we split it, ordered rib eye steak for 1,099 with 2 choices of side dish, so we choose rice wippeee! Too bad I'm a fan of super spicy food I've tried the "habañero steak sauce was shock it's not that spicy at all! Quite disappointed though.
Riblets is 149.00 ok naman pwede ng pang ulam hahaha

Place is pleasant cowboy style! Spacious and clean. No service charge, but I'm quite puzzled about their receipt. It's written at the very bottom like this

NO SERVICE CHARGE!
tips suggestion:
10% gratuity = 149.50
15% Gratuity = 224.25
20% Gratuity = 299.00

Haha I think if your going to put a tip they have price from percentage. It was all ok waitress are very attentive. Carrot cake is light but too sweet! Price is fair because they have big serving naman! Our journey was fun and lovely! Advance happy V'Day everyone! 128522

The ribs are what the Restaurant is famous for, but the steak here is equally good. I always make sure to drop by at Texas Joe's whenever I am at Subic.

Service was ok.. Food came in time.. The mashed potato and corn bread were excellent.. But I didn't find anyhting extra special with the ribs that they served us.. In fact, i thought the ribs were a little bit overdone.. All told, it was an ok dining experience

Boedrey A brought us here to pig out after a tiring beach trip, we happened to be diet conscious and workout addicts but despite the weekend pig out we gave our last hurrah by splurging on their ribs and steak, oh that juicy and tender ribs together with their delicouse side dishes, for that moment we stopped counting calories and started digging through everything in our table, all of em were good, will definitely consider returning here the next time we pass by subic 128077🏻

We were supposed to wait in line to be seated for 30 mins but yay it got reduced to only 15!!! 128588 Anyway, it's kind of pricey but the food was good naman plus I really liked the ambiance! It's not everyday you get to have lunch in a Wild Wild West themed restaurant, in the Philippines! I mean there are a few branches of Wild West Roadhouse Grill in Manila but the ambiance is nothing compared to the feel of Texas Joe's.

I did the ordering and I ordered a lot!!! We had the humongous sized spare ribs that comes with 4 cups of rice and 4 sides, the Tennessee combo, which was a combination of barbecued chicken, beef strips and more ribs!!! Plus the Carolina combo! Flavor wise it was good, plus the sides weren't bad at all! I liked the mashed potato the most. I also liked the mushroom soup! 128076

We were going to order dessert but then everyone was full already, so I just ended up getting an order of Joe Mocha milkshake, coffee infused, plus vanilla ice cream 128522128522128522

It's one of those unforgettable American restaurants that I've seen 'coz of its nice cowboy themed interior. 128522 It was newly opened back then when we visited the place.

I ordered their ribeye steak, medium-well, and it was delicious! I loved the gravy, and the mashed potato was heaven. 128523

The staff was nice, and their restroom was clean. 128522

Damn.. I miss Subic. 128542

first time to try this place yesterday. i convinced the bf to try here coz i was convinced by the looloo reviews.

texas bbq grill theme was spot on. i got transported somewhere when we went here for Saturday lunch. the songs were country and the movies were old wild wild west themed.

tables, decor and staff uniform were in line with the cowboy theme.

baby back ribs were good. it may not be the softest but it was packed with flavor and it was cheap for the serving. bbq sauces were original, honey and the spicy one i think. i like the original one. side dishes were generous. fries was fried perfectly. the veggie side were perfectly cooked too. mashed potato was buttery.

chili was great! best with onions and the cheese served with it.

will definitely come back.

no service charge in the bill.128519

This place was downright excellent! Odell R, Peanut D, a friend and I decided on this venue due to overwhelming positive reviews posted on Looloo. Looloo users, you do not lie! We ordered two full racks of baby back ribs to feed the four of us. It was a Holy $#%?! moment when we got the two racks- they were huge! (Get your mind out of the gutter gentlemen) If it weren't for the fact that the ribs were imported from Spain, I would swear they were GMO Pigs (EU forbids GMO meats.) They need to rename this giant baby back ribs. I will definitely be going back. I like to add one thing places can improve on to keep from sounding like a manic reviewer. One thing I would suggest is that they taste things fried in their oil because the onion loaf we ordered remained uneaten due to rancid tasting overused oil.

Ordered their ribeye steak again on my 2nd visit. 128525 I love it way more than their famous ribs. My medium rare steak was perfectly cooked, tender, juicy and flavorful. Serving was good enough for 2 but I ate it all myself. 128523 My fave side dishes are the butter garlic veggies and baked potato. Comfort room was also clean and well maintained. 128077
