Food took a little over an hour. Lots of flies. Servers don’t care until you nag them multiple times. Food serving is ridiculous also. Yeah the ribs are okay, but the sides are good for 2 bites. Its that small. Not proportional to the amount...of ribs. Then they have the audacity to charge the same price of 700+ pesos. Stay away from this place. They used to be good but i think after the pandemic, they got lazy. Stay away. Plenty of other places in subicMore

Family early dinner. Food was not as great compare our last 2 visits (2019 & 2021), the ribs served warm, their nachos portion not worth it for the price - portion. Ambiance still classic. Service was superb

Forget Meatplus, Texas Joe's is the bomb!!! Food was awesome, 11 stars out of 10! Food prep might take long because of the meat being grilled to perfection but it's worth the wait! Will surely visit TJs again and again! Place can be busy at...lunch and dinner especially on weekends. Parking spaces available. Can choose to dine inside or outdoors. Price point depends on your financial position lol! but it's fairly priced because of their serving size. If you are a tourist visiting Subic, this is a must place to eat at.More

No wonder why this resto is ranked numba 1. Aside form the cozy country ambiance, the food tasted great. Though the steak is far from perfect as there are some tough parts. I'm not sure if its just mine or all. The place is filled...with people and waiting lines are long esp. during holidays and wekends. No reservation, so be early or bear the lines. Definitely a place to go towhen you visit Subic. Don't forget your vaccine card.More

Thank you for your positive review. I am sorry for your steak. Unfortunately, there are times when the cut of meat isn't as we would like although our cooks try to make sure it is a good cut before it is delivered to the table....More

Got my order after an hour of wait. Followed up for four times. There wasn’t even a lot of people when we ordered. All they could do was apologize. On top of that it took 20 minutes for them to provide the bill. Salmon was...dry and overcooked. Ribs sampler was great and so was the chicken quesadilla. Not worth the time I wasted for the quality of food and service.More

It’s always a great experience being here. The place, the food, and the staff were superb. I introduced my co-workers from a different province to try and eat at TJ and they loved it! We just have to wait to be seated since there’s a...lot of people but it’s understandable since it was the weekend and you’re following health protocol to keep us safe as well. Kudos to you guys! See you again soon!More

Worth the trip going to Subic for the food and the ambiance. Staff is really friendly and make sure the experience is really good. Pretty big food servings, almost every meal can be easily shared between 2 people.

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
