Bought a 3-piece chicken for take out at their Jaro Branch for Php285. Quiet excited to reach home due to the yummy smell coming from it. Upon reaching home I immediately ate it, batter was good but the meat was bland. Amount of coleslaw was...measly. I could get a much better deal from KFC for the money.More

Fried chicken are kid's all time favorite. Since we are in a new place, we wanna take a break from the usual fastfood and wanted to try the highly recommended Uncle Tom's fried chicken. Kids loved it. My husband and I had ribs. It was...tasty! Good ambiance.More

We came here because we were hungry for a good steak. We ordered a fried chicken and a porter house steak. The orders came qith soup, rice and french fries (as a subtitues for salad). The mushroom soup was a McCormick ready mix package. The...flavor cannot be mistaken. The french fries was warm, not hot. The fried chicken was almost too rare to eat. The stake was tendor and would have had more flavor on it own, without their aeasonning. The whole meal was on one note of Old and Reused Oil. $10 for a steak, you should use preminum fresh oil to cook.More

They cook you chicken after you order it, so it is very tasy and juicy. And highly suggest that you order their potato salad as it compliments both the ribs and the chicken. Also one of their spaciality is the sizzling ox tongue. This comes...with mushroom soup, and rice, and could even request for extra mushroom gravy. For dessert, their chocolate cake is a must try. Place is modest and clean. You could have your dinner alfresco, sittes in bean bags, or be in an aircondition room with their tables and chairs. And their staff/ waiters are attentive.More

We went here because of their steaks and fried chicken I have a high expectations on this restaurant based on what I’ve read on many reviews but when got to taste their food it’s not delicious as what I expected. Just an average Taste. Also...they have to improved or renovate the interior of this restaurant too.More

Hired them to cater a series of training a few years ago and all participants were very happy. Bought a couple of meals recently and still very satisfied. Plenty of options, big servings, good food, excellent service.

The place was a little run down. Some of the items we ordered were out of stock or no longer on the menu. Fried chicken was pretty good. Not really worth going out of your way for. Sunburst of Cebu is much better than this...place in all aspects.More

Just got a steak and a mango shake there for a quick business lunch. Expectation excedeed, meat was great and the service fast. Considering the other comments on the site I was maybe just lucky. Not too many Clients on a (normally) busy hour.

When it comes to fried chicken, this place has always been a favorite, before I got my wisdom teeth until now when I have all teeth minus the wisdom. The gravy though I feel is not the same as it used to be. Or maybe...that depended on who made the gravy that day.More

We ordered the fried chicken and ribs after reading some good reviews. However, it was a big disappointment. Chickens were bloody; and for the price of P190, you can get better quality fried chickens at Army Navy for P175 (or so many other restaurants! Try...Jamie's at SM City. It's the best so far IMO). Also the rice that comes with it is of poor quality. As for the ribs, what do you imagine when you order ribs? It was adobo flavor. We all hated it. It's such a shame that for just a few minor tweaks, this restaurant would have been great. But with prices above average and food is below average, it's a double punch. I tried to love it, even convinced my family to try it, but it was such a waste.More
