Famished, we wasted no time ordering the signature Manang’s chicken (P99 for a one-piece meal with rice and iced tea) plus a regular-sized Chips and dip (P39, your choice of dip). As in other Korean-style fried chicken, theirs was fried then glazed with a caramelized sauce- available in original, mild spicy and spicy.
Service was relatively fast compared to other fast food chains at lunch time, but one would later on find out that this is probably because their chickens have been cooked waaay before serving. Sad-looking and pale, both our meals were served cold and tough, possibly reheated. The meat had no juice, the skin without any crunch whatsoever, and the sesame seeds, insipid. Jigs’ sauce pick, original, is too sweet on the palate. You’d have better luck with the mild spicy sauce, which is less sweeter and carries that nice subtle kick of hotness.
Their saving grace were the chips, which were suuuuper crunchy and salted just right. The Creamy Cheese dip was fantastic as well.
Now ya might be asking, is the burger really bigger and better at BBB? Laid against McDonald’s Cheeseburger or Burger King’s Whopper: Definitely. Grilled spot on, the patty is plump, meaty, and succulent, oozing beefy juice into nice, soft buns as you sink your teeth into it. Even without cheese, I’d pick this delightful sandwich over other cheeseburgers in a heartbeat.

Couldn’t get the husband to stop eating the darn burger.
The fries too came in chunkier cuts than the usual fries in other fastfood joints. Crunchy but not greasy, the potato wedges were fried with a bit of potato skin on the ends which provided an earthy flavor.
And the best part? All you need to do is sit, order from an attendant, eat, and ask for your bill – all that without the costly service charge. How is that for fastfood?

This is one burger joint we’ll definitely go back to.
