surprisingly cheap

consider trying sea burger served with onion rings or french fries. (i liked the french fries) which is too much for a meryenda..
the variety of their menu as too American and their servings too.
their crew are attentive and you don't have to wait too long for the bill..
the price is reasonable (which at first you may find it pricey) since the serving is (which I agree with previous review) is generous.
the place will be ideal for a group of super hungry friends.
we'll be back to try their steaks..

extra sauce please?

3

i like their asian chicken salad... serving's generous, but sometimes the dressing isn't enough.. if im dining at tender bob's, i never miss to order this salad...

for the entrees, i find that there's little variety... i would wish that they'd vary their entrees a bit, there's little creativity on their entrees, it's either just fried, or grilled, nothing much to choose from...

i agree with the earlier reviews about the charge for extra sauce... who would want to pay an extra 35 or 40 bucks for a small cup of sauce??? not even if i indulge on the sauce that i'd be happy to pay 40 bucks for it... look, we already paid good money for the dish, what's a few pesos more on tender bob's expense sheet to please a customer by giving them a bit more sauce? of course, it's another story if the customer asks again and again for extra sauce... i think it's but reasonable for them to give a little bit more sauce when a customer requests for it... (just like in other restos like tgif, chili's etc etc)

THE PERFECT MEAT AND POTATOES

4

if you're in the mood for nice, tender steaks, i do reco tender bob's at shangri-la mall top level.

the portion is big. for ladies, i'd say it's good for 2! ...but if you're a lady who's yoyo-south beach dieting like me, don't share! :-) the best side dish for me is their Potato Skins, served with 2 dips -cheese and garlic ranch(i think), this is an exciting take on the usual french fries... and of course, your usual ice cold drink, coke zero is my preference.

seeing the other reviews here, am not sure if it's the branch but i always get good, prompt service at Tender Bob's Shangri-la, though haven't tried the other branches. as for the extra charge for the sauce, haven't really tried ordering extras, but if they do charge me for the extra ranch/dip sauce for my potato skins, i personally wouldn't mind if that's gonna make me continue to enjoy my meal even more, and I do over-indulge in the sauce anyway, as in.. :-)

extra charge for extra sauce

2

food is ok... a major drawback is there's an extra charge for extra sauce. as if the sauce that comes with your order is enough... we ordered the oriental chicken salad, there's an heaping plate of salad (mmmm... that's good) but it comes with a small shot glass of dressing (d'oh!). sayang, the salad is good pa naman... & another thing, the servers are kinda lazy in refilling the drinks.

Tender it is

Just had lunch there with my wife last week, we had the local porterhouse and ribs, the steak was unexpectedly tender and the portion was not bad, cant say the same for ribs, the glazing was too sweet and meat was a bit dry, the meat to bone ration was not satisfying. We also had potato skins as appetizers, the sour cream dip was delightful especially with a dash habañero sauce.

hit or miss

this place is another hit or miss. judging from the dishes ive ordered and what the people at the next table had, id say the servings are a bit small. the food isnt bad, in fact some of them are good. but for the money you're shelling out, you should expect better. if your at the block, i advice you to try your luck at gumbo instead.

Customer service needs improvement

We had dinner last night at Tender Bob SM the block. We are a group of 10 so we have ordered 10 different dishes. Among all our orders, the Clam chowder soup and the US prime ribeye steak were the best. For the others, Im not satisfied. I have nothing bad to say about the quality of their food. Their food really taste good. But their serving is really small.

I ordered for a Three Cheese Burger at the price of 295 (the prices in this site is not updated). I was expecting something very big for that price but I got dissappointed. I compared it with the burger which I frequently eat at Fridays, Fridays burgers is a lot bigger and cheaper. Though even with small serving, their burger is good. It taste well.

Another thing which dissappoints all of us was, when we tried to ask for an extra sauce (mustard) for the chicken fingers, the waiter said that there is an extra charge. I asked him why there is an extra charge, he said "Sakto kasi ang serving namin e. Bilang kasi mga yun". The price for a small cup of mustard sauce was Php 35. I have been to a lot of restaurant and this is the first time that I heared that extra sauce has a charge. It seems like Tender bob is focusing on how to boost their income and forgetting about their service.

Im not sure if this happens only on this particular branch, but I'll might give it a try to eat at other tender bob branches.

Good Meat.

Even though I didn't order the expensive U.S. steak, I was very happy with the porterhouse that I got. It was tender and tasty and the portion was generous. The sauce on the side was also nice and salty. Even the corn and other vegetables were good. I wish I could have had french fries on the side, though. I was offered only mashed potato or rice.

They didn't seem to have enough waiters for the size of the place.

Overall, I enjoyed the experience and I look forward to going back with my family and friends.
