Food orders come in big servings can be shared. Price is mid-range. Food taste is satisfactory. Friendly food servers. Ambience is true to the name of the resto. Gives you a cowboy feel. The staff was kind enough to lend us some cowboy hats so we can take pictures wearing them while we were waiting for our food to be served. The facade of the resto is really nice! Good for IG pictures.

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!

As soon as you walk In and being greated by the staff, you feel like you are in Texas. Black and White John wane movies on the TV screens . Brick walls and western style decore. When you sit down and enjoy a beer the waitress have a lot of knowledge about the menue. Any question you ask sthey seams to know it. When we went in the place was packed whit prople, and I asked the waitress if it's normalyblike this and she said yes, It's a popular place . I orded the spare ribbs , fantastic . It isn't drowend in sauce . but the is different sauces thay you can add your self. teh others orded sallad , hamburgers and brisket. Ewrybody Was impressed whit there food. We had a bifrday guest whit us so we told the staff, they came out whit a ice cream cake whit a candle and they where singing happy birthdy. Highley recommend Texas Joe's House of ribs.

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!!

Sorry for the experience you had at Texas Joe's. It is extremely rare to get a review such as yours because we try to prepare quality foods and I can assure you that we don't serve "old carbaw". Our meats are all imported from a quality supplier but there are times that if the meat is not to your standards we will replace your order if you tell us. Again, my apologies and thank you for alerting us to your experience.

Good thing they allow kids already in the alfresco. Just couldnt get over (Im sure the others too and not their fault) to show you have a face shield before the sit you down OUTSIDE. But rules are rules. Now the food: We ordered what I consider the staple of a good barbecue/ smokehouse RIBS, Brisket, Pork Shoulder (they say better than pulled pork). Brisket - was ok asked for the fatty part but only given a few slab of fatty cuts. But the downside is they put the bbq sauce o. The top of the brisket. I shouldve been asked if I want the sauce to be on the side. So i can appreciate the meat. Pork shoulder - Was So so not better than the brisket. Ribs - ordered a three bone because I know these are big ribs but with the size is the lacking of flavor. Ribs we got is so Dry so smothered with the sauce but even the inside lacks juiciness. Ribs was supposed to be the highlight but this is not the texas joe’s I knew. Too sad. Funny thing is the highlight of the meal is the green beans! Perfectly cooked. Crunchy and so buttery the way we like it. Dirty rice has always been a favorite and the bbq sauces has been consistent. Will I give it another try Sure. Since considering the pricepoint its still somewhat value for money. I saw a commenter also experiencing the dry ribs issue and replied by Ed to have it send back. So if that happens call it out. But again, that shouldnt happen in the first place. ;)

Sorry, Jack. Sorry that you were not satisfied with your visit. Although this has been a difficult time for our industry we still do our very best to provide a quality meal to all of our guests. I noted that you have been here a number of times so you should have a good reference point. The brisket has been prepared the same way since the beginning and it is one of our most popular dishes. Again sorry your order was not to your liking. If you had dry ribs then again I apologize. Sourcing good product is difficult these days and sometimes we get a rib that is not what we want to serve but it is up to your taste which is why I commented before about sending it back. Most guests are quite happy with the ribs. In any event, we are here to serve our guests and out of the thousands of guests we serve each week we sometimes do not meet their expectations and I am sorry for this. With your comments and with others we try to improve and reach the highest standards. Thank again your comments. Ed

I know this review is a bit late but I need to say that our Thanksgiving lunch was amazing! Emphasis on the word: amazing. My boyfriend and I loved the turkey and stuffing. Drizzled with some of the gravy, it was just perfect. The staff were very helpful and kind, asking if we were satisfied with the food or needed anything else. All in all, we will definitely visit again maybe for some casual dinner this time. Would really like to try their steaks!

Wow, don’t overlook this wonderful cuisine from Texas recipes. Food was great and the service was just excellent. Try the Tennessee Trio. Excellent since I am from Tennessee. JL Lunceford (I do have one complaint; I have worked in or visited 70 countries. And I have undoubtedly had a few Martinis in everyone of the 70 countries. Not one establishment in those countries ever charged me extra for two olives to accompany my Martini. The two ladies behind the bar at Texas Joes insisted on charging me an extra 10 pesos for the two olives. I can afford the darn olives; but refused to pay for them just from a principled standpoint. This was a ridiculous way to treat a patron who regularly visits the restaurant). They finally offered them on the house, but by that time, I had finished the Martini and I was in no mood to accept charity. I was really disappointed in the bar staff at Texas Joes.

Went to Texas Joes because I read a review best steak in the Philippines. The place is nice and clean and the service is fast, maybe a little too fast. I ordered the cowpoke salad ( just a regular salad with lettuce tomato cucumber. The lettuce was fresh and crispy and the dressing was good. My main course was the rib eye steak. It was cooked exactly as I requested and came with green beans and a baked potato. the waitress informed me that I was eligible for another side that was included but I didn't want anything else and didn't notice what my options were. The steak was very good not great because there was no seasonkng. I'm also used to have fresh cracked black pepper. The establishment is very clean and the aircon works great. The wait staff are friendly. Steaks are to be served on a hot plate mine was not. I usually ask for one but it had slipped my mind . Overall a good experience I would go back again if I visited Subic. Price for one was 1750 for one I only drank water

Appreciate your review. Sorry about the fresh cracked pepper which we do have because I too prefer my food with cracked pepper. I am sorry about your plate temperature. It should have been served on a heated plate. I will reinforce that. Thanks again, Ed

Finally after numerous missed chances we had the opportunity to dine in this revered meat speciality restaurant. Got to try the baby back ribs , barbecue chicken and rib eye steak. Support crew dishes such as nachos, bacon pops, chicken Caesar salad , baked potato and that yummy cornbread completed the dining experience. Liked the food , and I felt that the steak was better than the ribs. Loved my interplay of the sauces in munching the baby back however. Fine ambiance . Very good staff service . I’m sorry I failed to get the name of the lady staff who handled our orders . She made good suggestions considering we are in a big group. Finally , while the food was reasonably priced considering the high standards of quality it should be noted that they don’t give a service charge. I hope they get to be tipped generously since they deserved such gratuity with their attentiveness and professionalism.

I've been here lots of times before and it was great. Recently came here. Atmosphere was great, staff are friendly. Drinks are awesome esp the margaritas... Food was still okay.. except that one time I came and ordered ribs.. it is a rib place after all. I had to ask for a steak knife.. because it was so so gamy. I don't mind ribs not falling off the bones but just that it was so hard and chewy was pretty disappointing. I dont know if it was just bad that day.. but it was really bad. It's like frozen ribs thawed a little and grilled. Not the best. They're sauces are great though. Also loved the chilli soup.

Thanks for your review. I am sorry for the ribs you had and you should never have that experience. If we get a rack that is not up to par then we will gladly replace it with a good one or with something else if you prefer. When you come back let me know you're here and we make sure you get a great rack of ribs. Thanks for your comments. Ed

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!

We went to this place for lunch to celebrate our 28th anniversary with my mom and 4 kids. We arrived a bit early so we were told to wait till they opened at 10:30am. They allowed us to seat at the open area which is a good thing as my mom needs fresh air. We ordered the rib eye steaks and the baby back ribs which was really good. The onion basket is huge and delicious. Buffalo wings is also good. Portions are generous and American size. Staff were friendly and attentive but undermanned which is why I did not give it a 5 star rating. We were seated in the outdoor non smoking area but a bit far from the view of the waitresses so it was an effort to get their attention. Other than that, everything was okay. When we went in to use the toilets, the place inside was packed! Proof that this place is worth going to. Ample parking space is also provided. For sure, we will be back again.

The restaurant is one of the best in Subic. The head chef at the restaurant is excellent. His cooking, and that of the assistant chefs, is amazing! The steak is an absolute joy and is so tender. The chef spends a great deal of time beating the meat and is not afraid to ask for assistance from his junior staff and Shea if required. I have been told the chefs big rib is also worth experiencing as this will melt in your mouth in a joyous explosion of taste. The deserts are stunning and the apple pie gives a taste of being back in the USA. It's like real American Pie. A truly exquisite Philippines dining experience

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.

I don't live for BBQ like some of my friends but do know great ones from mediocre and this place competes with anyone anywhere. The true test iof a BBQ joint is in their "baked beans" and Texas Joe's were awesome, amongst the best anywhere. Serivings were humungous and service was super firendly and spot-on (thet onee negative view below... guy must have had a chhip on his shoulder.) And good value to boot. You're in Subic Bay, you MUST go to Texas Joe's. Otherwise you haven't been to Subic Bay.
