About
Texas Joe's House of Ribs is an authentic American Smokehouse restaurant. We feature slow smoked US Pork Spare Ribs and Pork Baby Back Ribs. We also smoke US Certified Angus Beef brisket and US Pork Shoulder as well as Chicken. We feature USDA Choice Steaks also. We also have grilled Salmon shrimp dishes. All of our food is prepared fresh using our own unique recipes. Over the years we have become a favorite place to eat in the Olongapo/Subic Bay area.

Their ribs are so dry and tough ... Even their pork chops too ... Saved by their delicious sauces or original / honey/spicy ... If no sauce it's dry and bland ... Very disappointed ☹️☹️☹️ and quite expensive for their quality! And servers are not...cordial.will not eat here ever.More

If you are looking for delicious food, and excellent service this is the place to go! My husband and I are from Oklahoma (beef cattle country) and the food, atmosphere, and service make us feel at home. We visit here regularly, and always have a...phenomenal experience. The steaks are always cooked to perfection, beer is cold, and cocktails are mixed expertly. You can’t go wrong visiting this establishment. Highly recommend!More

I was there three times in 2019. Two times it was OK. The third time the quality of meat was lausy . I thought it was an exemption. So I tried again in January, however it was still more lausy, old carabaw, really really bad...meat that had nothing to do with fillet steak. I complained. And this I have to say: unlike what in those situations usually happens in Philippines, they really cared and regreted, offered free dessert, managed well. Maybe they knew and felt guilty. Anyway, two times is one time too much. Positiv only are the sidedishes, they still serve a lot. If You really want a perfect fillet steak in Philippines You can find it in OPERA in Bonifacio Global City: the best I ever eat all over the world, including US and Argentina!!More

Go here for the steak. Beer is cold. WiFi is available. In other words, a perfect out of town destination for those near Subic during quarantine (but you must be coming from a region that is NOT under ECQ or MECQ. (As of Jul10 2020)

Fantastic Experience. First outing since COVID-19 lockdown was initiated and Texas Joe's did not disappoint. The staff were great, the food exceptional and the service fantastic. Overall we rate the experience 5/5 and will be visiting while we remain in Subic Bay.

We love pets but not in the restaurant. We do have open space outside and if not full of guest we have permitted dogs if leased.

Menu price is like 650 for medium steak 🥩 and 490 below the others from chicken buffalo wings to the steak they served good portions so if you’re getting grilled steak get small for one person still big portions for me
