Whenever my family will celebrate a simple gathering or celebration and we forgot to book a table in our fave restos inside BF Aguirre, our next best choice is to find a restaurant in SM Southmall. I personally do not like coming here anymore since I transferred home back in 2009. Because I find it too far from where I live and there are other restaurants and shopping malls near my place like Vista Mall Las Pinas and SM Sucat Paranaque.
Since I am a BIG fan of American food, because common, it’s basic and I just love anything meat especially their famous baby back ribs in Burgoo American Bar and Restaurant.
Burgoo SM Southmall
The restaurant reminds me of TGI Friday’s as they have similar food choices but the prices in Burgoo are cheaper than Friday’s which I like the most. To be honest, there are other non-commercialized restaurants here in Las Pinas that offers way cheaper in their menu but the quality of their food is not compromised.
Burgoo can accommodate 60 to 70 pax and they are open during mall hours from Monday to Sunday, 10 in the morning until 10 in the evening. And during mall SALE they are open until 11 in the evening.
I ordered their group meal that cost less than 2,000 Pesos / 40 USD, good for 4 to 5 pax. The set menu is complete with an appetizer, a salad of your choice, 2- 1-liter drinks, meat, pasta and a lot more.
Onion Rings with Chicken Tenders and Fries
I’m not a fan of onion rings but surprisingly my and I were able to eat 3 or 4 pieces of these. My kid even thought this was a Calamares because it does look like it.
Chicken tenders have enough spices on it and not too salty.
My kid and I are both pasta lovers and whatever kind of pasta dish you serve us, we will both finish it in no time. It may be in plain Olive Oil and tomato with basil or filled with thick white sauce and lots of meat and bacon and cheese, we love it!
Burgoo’s version of their Pasta in Marinara Sauce is excellent. You cannot see any trace of meat but in your first bite, you can taste the saltiness of bacon which I love most.
Baby Back Ribs
This baby back rib is so tender that it melts in your mouth and even kids will love having this for lunch or dinner. The sauce is a bit sweet with a little tanginess but it’s not too overpowering which is good.
It’s moist and dense. And I like the mix of lemon sauce in it.
The set menu also comes with 2 1-liter of drinks, House blend Iced Tea and Lemon Juice.
The set menu is already discounted so PWD and Senior Citizen card will not be honored anymore. Besides with all these food choices I only paid less than 2,000 Pesos.
If your barkada or family are looking for a place to have good lunch or dinner, consider dining here at Burgoo. They have several branches all over the metro.
