The ribs, chicken bbq, liempo and shrimp rolls were especially good. Good sized portions and reasonable prices., Good atmosphere, cheerful and polite staff and very clean. We will always eat here when we have the opportunity.

I can say a must try on all the menu list. But me give you some suggestions. The baby back ribs is the bestseller. Try also the sizzling bulalo which is Something new and original on this dish which is normally cooked with soup.

Johanna is a must when in Batangas.... or make that, anytime you want good baby back ribs! My guests always feel sorry when they order a rib to share. YOU MUST HAVE YOUR OWN. So far, in their menu... our best sellers are the Ribs...(I order large no rice but added corn at no extra cost) and the Sizzling Bulalo. The other items in the menu are so-so (not bad) but just because the ribs are just superb!More

if you want to try real Filipino bbbq. this is not Inihaw. just imitation bbq smouldered in sauce. no signs of charcoal grilling. We wanted to eat bbq as in Filipino so we ventured for a mini trip to the city and browsed tripadvisor. ugh......place looks fine.. authentic provincial resto.. but i just wish they stick to the old inihaw method.Why??? would you have a Filipino ambiance and serve imitation Racks grilled beef.It's ok. it tasted ok .. food to fill the tummy but if your looking for Inihaw.. aurhentic Filipino barbecue.. this is not the place. 🙄 the tacos were good. the turon is fine. the ribs were soft and average. the service is ok.. they memorize the orders but forget them 🤣 just write it down! haha Tummy Filler resto.. this is what it is.More

I like their shrimp, stuffed squid and chicken barbeque. The ambiance is fine. Parking is small but they will assist you. It is in the middle of the city.

Located right at the heart of Batangas City, this restaurant serves the best Beef Caldereta and Crispy Pata. Luckily, I am not hypertensive that I am able to enjoy both delectable dishes. Must try when in Batangas!

It’s been ages I’ve been here in Batangas City but first time to go and dine at Johanna’s Grill, my verdict...very nice ambiance. Food is ok, ribs and sausages. Fries too thin and looking at it feels like it was dehydrated. I’ll give the ambiance...an A though not AC room, January weather is cold, I wonder how it will be during summer. Anyway, server was polite so I’ll give an A also. For the food, it’s B- for me.More

I’m a regular customer of their original Bauan branch. But since I now live in Batangas City I tried dining at their branch along P. Burgos street. The food is amazingly consistent but I notice the service is a liitle bit less than the original.

When you’re in Batangas City and you want a baby back ribs, then Johanna’s Grill is the best choice. We are returnee customer ever since they have their branch at Bauan Batangas. We love the taste of their ribs and even the children loves them....It is best paired with their house blend iced tea. Yum.. But I don’t like their blueberry cheese cake because it is to sweet and just a ref cake. One of the problems that I always encounter when eating at their P.Burgos Branch are their displays of cars because my son really like cars 😂. But I warn you check your bills properly because I encountered wrong bill one time just because the crew marks 2 meals (the top and buttom). Good thing I asked for OR not just their tally sheet before I pay.More

The best tasting baby back ribs in the city! Its tenderness, juiciness and flavor makes it the best. Another must try is their bluberry cheesacake!! 😍 I loved the interior of the restaurant in Batangas City but the branch in Bauan has a more cool...vibe. 😊More
