Good old fashioned ribs.
Happy new year everyone!
To kick start 2016, I wanted a last get away before work started that I found myself in Subic. After the long drive I had a severe meat craving and wanted something substantial that I can eat with my bare hands (some people would find this gross, i don’t care)
but there is no feeling comparable to biting into a juicy piece of meat while grease is dripping down your chin (I know it’s messy)
. Luckily, I stumbled upon Texas Joe’s
while driving around.
It certainly caught my eye, take a look at that, a building that seems to pop out from the old west.
The red brick structure, and all out design to impart the feeling of being in the old American west. Their waitresses were even dressed as cowgirls, and all their TV’s had old western movies playing.
For starters, we had their Boneless Buffalo Wings with Joe’s original sauce served with ranch dressing. I really liked this one, and I only regret not getting the bigger size. The sauce(they have 3 kinds) was tangy and smokey, my kind of sauce. The potato skins underneath were crunchy and well seasoned which complements the chicken making this a great appetizer.
Now for the main course, Spare Ribs with 2 sides. It came with steamed vegetables, coleslaw, and home style fries. Fun fact: Spare ribs has more fat than baby back ribs that is leaner in comparison that it gives the BBQ ribs a fuller flavor. The ribs were tender and juicy, just the type of meal that I was looking for. You can taste the smokiness from the meat. The fries were cooked perfectly, although the coleslaw was just mediocre. To add even more to this dish you have the option to use their 3 sauces Joe’s Original, Carolina Honey, and Habanero. I liked mixing all three so that I had a sweet, savory and spicy kick.
Overall, Texas Joe’s succeeded in giving me that “finger licking good” experience. To top it off, the prices are also very affordable and frankly, this is better than Meat Plus. So be sure to come over when you head over to Subic.
Visit Texas Joe’s!
