A jam-packed weekend brought my family to try a restaurant that we don't regularly go to: Burgoo. I have been to Burgoo before and I was quite satisfied with the service. For the food, well..
Thinking that I might have ordered the wrong food the first time, we still gave it another try.
My little sister wasn't too pleased that we chose Burgoo, because she wanted to eat in some other kid friendly restaurant. She was about to have a tantrum when the server gave her an activity paper with crayons, and she suddenly kept quiet and got busy with the crayons. Alleluia.

Moreover, the activity paper has the kids' menu. Wise, eh? My sister ordered a mini-pizza and cookies & cream milkshake.
For starters, we had Cheddar Cheese Fries (Php 225 for regular, Php 325 for large) and Caesar Salad (Php 325 for regular, Php 425 for large).
The salad was satisfactory for me and my mom, but the cheddar cheese fries needed more cheese sauce, in my opinion.
For main course, our family shared the Shrimps and Ribs Platter (Php 995, large).
The platter has barbequed baby back ribs, Cajun-spiced fried prawns, served with fries and grilled corn. Claimed as their bestseller, I wasn't amazed with this dish. The fried prawns were too greasy, and the ribs wasn't to our liking.
My only consolation was the Watermelon Shake (Php 145), my favorite fruit smoothie.
Overall, Burgoo is a kid-friendly restaurant efficient when it comes to service. However, given the bill that we paid (around Php 2500), our family would rather go somewhere else with better and more delicious food. Should Burgoo improve on their food, I'd gladly give them another visit.
