“if you want authentic cebuano fare”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014

Matias is the place to be!

I keep coming back for that chorizo!! You get there, pick your food and ask them to cook it. Sit down and enjoy it with puso. Matias is a no frills, get down to it, eat with your hands kind of place that makes you come back for more!

“Tasty Chicken Barbecue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014 via mobile

I like it here. I like the place and the food especially their chicken barbecue.

I was first introduced to this place by my friend who lived in Cebu. It's her fave barbecue place and she told me that Matias is way better than Larsian and I agree with her.

“Makes you full fast!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2014

Matias, you never fail us. Mom first found this BBQ house and at first i didn't know what it was. It's very popular for Mandaue residents unlike some other places. So here i can say this is not too expensive and a nice drink of Palsen to enjoy the moment. It's so lively here and many people are laughing and having fun with their barkadas. and this is a good concept of Matias in their family background since they have probably bought that lot a long time ago and made a business out of it. so tourists, try this place out!
