Jollibee Tips (14)

Jollibee: Bad restaurant, bad experience

My daughter and I decided to eat at Jollibee Santa Rosa one day. i ordered burger steak for her and chicken joy for me. I let my daughter eat first her burger steak and when she was almost done eating i started to eat my food. I found out that the rice served to me was mushy, when i started eating it tasted too soft and wet. Plus it smelled stale already. I checked my daughters rice but i couldnt distinguish if hers Was also stale as she had finished eating already.
I asked for a supervisor.
He said " he will have a replacement for the rice". And he did.. He gave me another plate with rice and he said " Just transfer the chcken to this new plate". The chicken was already soaked with the stale rice that he first serve.. I lost my appetite and none of the crew and staff apologized. I brought the rice with me and showed other people. I went to the baranggay to have that incident documented. Even in photos you can distinguish the staleness of the rice. After all the hassle, the supervisor said that " you should know like any other restaurants, we're not perfect. Me and my daughterwill never step foot on that place again, She had phobia with jollibee.

Jolibee: Run.the other way

The Jolibee at Robinsons in Laoag, the hamburger was cold, had to ask no pink sweet sauce, FF;s were cold had to ask for hot fries I dont think they are trained in proper holding times.. Chicken has a weird taste (not good way), BUT the staff was very nice & helpful.. I guess it depends on quality of food your used to.. coke was flat..

Favorite Dish glass of water..you cant ruin the water

Jollibee: Which even McDonald couldn't win

You can't escape Joliibee when you are in the Philippines. Even more omnipotent than McDonald. There is one restaurant along any major roads. Very popular with the locals as the chain offer local fast food at economical prices. You get the standard fast food fare - burgers, fried chicken (which by the way is tasty and worth a try!), salad alongside local items such as Halo Halo (local dessert), yam pies and the quinessential ball of rice. Possibly the only place on Earth where Uncle Ronnie has to accept second best.

Favorite Dish Fried Chicken!

Jollybee: Local fast food chain

Jollybee is a success story to prove that local initiatives can also compete against global giants. Delicious burgers with enough variety are preferred by locals as well as foreigners like me. The quality of the food is high and the prices are very reasonable. During our 4 days stay in Manila, we visited Jollibee at least 3 times.

Favorite Dish The big burger which can compete a Big Mac or a Whopper

Jollibee: No one should eat fast food...

Jollibee...I grew up eating this stuff. No wonder I ballooned up to 225 lbs. Fast food should be eaten sparingly or never at all. Just think about all those greasy trans fats, saturated fats, sugar, sugar, and loads more sugar. There's sugar in the spaghetti, sugar in the sauce, tablespoons of sugar in the soda. This is the nastiest thing anyone can put in their mouth. Can you just imagine what your insulin levels will be like after a meal at Jollibee? They'll shoot through the roof and before you know it, you'll have a belly as big as the Jollibee's mascot.

Don't get me wrong. Filipino food CAN be healthy. Visiting the Philippines gives you the opportunity to savor fresh fish, vegetables, and a wide variety of tropical fruits. That's what I always look forward to when I visit.

What went wrong with Jollibee? They tried to imitate McDonald's (which also serves nasty, greasy fast food) but added tons more sugar to their menu. Before you know it, America's obesity problem will also be a Filipino problem albeit with additional complications from eating too much refined sugar.

Favorite Dish None, no one should eat this unhealthy fare.

Jollibee: What's All the Fuss About????

I've seen endless endless tips on the VT Manila page about Jollibee, and I have to say I don't see what all the fuss is about. I've eaten at a couple of Jollibee outlets in this country, and to be honest I wasn't impressed. It's nasty cheap junk food at it's worst, laden with salt, fat and sugar.
Service is slow - the large burgers never seem to be available - if you want one it has to be cooked to order and takes at least 10 minutes. Not exactly fast food in my opinion.
In one Malate branch I was served fried chicken that was raw in the middle, and when I asked for a replacement the staff looked amazed and bemused. I was told that a replacement was coming, but when it hadn't arrived after 15 minutes we gave up and left. The second time I was foolish enough to order chicken from there, it turned out to be mostly bones and no meat.
The hamburgers are usually cold, and appear to have been sat on, and the overload of sweet pink sauce floods the bread and makes it soggy.
The hotdogs are bearable, and the french fries are not too bad - when they are actually served hot, that is.
The burger and spaghetti sauces are way too sweet and sickly for most western palates, who don't understand the necessity of adding so much sugar to traditionally savoury meals. One thing in it's favour is that it is cheap - but you get what you pay for.
Sorry if I'm offending anyone here - I know Filipinos love this 'restaurant' - but there is much room for improvement!

Jollibee: Manila's fastest growing fast food chain

After a couple of hours walking about the popular Mall of Asia, we made our way to Jollibee with a curious mind why Mcdonalds ranks second to Jollibee in Manila.
The fried chicken is tasty but I left some pasta unfinished. Read somewhere that the locals like Sweet pasta sauce. No wonder.

Jollibee: Fast Food at it's best...

Man, I love Jollibee (and every other fast food joint in the Philippines). There's just something about getting rice with your burger that never ceases to amaze me. haha. I also find it amazing that you can get arroz caldo here. I wish we had a Jollibee in Canada.

Favorite Dish The fries, crispy chickenjoy and arroz-caldo

Jollibee: LOCAL FASTFOOD

Jollibee is one of the Philippines' phenomenal business success stories. Starting in 1975 as a two-branch ice cream parlor, it later expanded its menu to include hot sandwiches and other meals. With encouraging success, Jollibee Foods Corporation was incorporated in 1978 with seven outlets to fully explore the possibilities of a hamburger concept. Thus was born the company that revolutionized the fast food industry in the Philippines.

Jollibee: Filipino fast food- Be Happy

It was my first meal on the Philippines, there was one in fromt of my condo in Greenhills.
Philippines is the only country that has McDonalds chain and the brand is not the first when we alk about fastfood. Filipinos are crazy for Jollibee!
Their sauces are a litle bit sweeter, just ok for the filipino taste.

Favorite Dish ice cream
