It's a chain restaurant but it's awesome. Try the pork sisig, excellent! Quite cheap as well. It's worth a try.

I love the way they cooked the "Lechon" and their own 'sarsa". I just hope that this will be applied to all branches whether it is a company-owned or franchise. I've been to different branches like Makati (near RCBC, along J.P. Rizal, near Chino Roces and Evangelista, Sta. Rosa, Laguna and Quiapo, Manila. I've noticed that their services differ espcially...

Needed a late snack/dinner and dropped into this place. Looks good, but not impressed. First, food tastes ok. But portions are small if not tiny. So the reason the prices are low is that servings are smaller - so small that I need to buy at least two portions for myself. Lots of items on menu not available. Service and... More

I have been a Chic-boy fan since it started. What made me a fan was the variety, the prices, and the serving portions. However, a couple of weeks ago I visited chic-boy and found major changes...ordering is a bit more confusing, prices went up, and the portions got significantly smaller...too bad...

Had my lunch there the other day. While it is full of customers, staff managed to serve us hot food in 10 minutes. I was amazed how they do that when they are serving grilled foods. Food is great tasting and with big serving. Cleanliness is the same as Mcdonalds. Thanks.

once you dine in this place, you will not like to come back again...the food they offer will not satisfy the crave of our stomach, poor service and small space to move in.

There are a lot more choices that its competitor offering the same type of food with unlimited rice. I really like their sisig. The place can get very crowded during noontime so if you're not on strict time limits (like lunch break during work hours), better come here early.

I recommend Cebu Lechon or Cebu Chicken I think CB5 and CB6 are the best menu for everyone who loves chicken and pork. The vinegar of Chic-boy really compliments the chicken and pork to really enhance your tastebuds nonetheless UNLIMITED RICE!

Chic-boy is a must try for all young people as it is really cheap and it fills every inch of your stomach. Their cebu lechon and their lechon manok (roasted chicken) is the way to go in this restaurant. They have also these tasty sinigang and sisig but my hands are already full with the lechon and the manok. Although... More
