Grill All Meat You Can Eat at The Grillery Smoke House in Backyard Burgers South in #88 Quimpo Boulevard, Ecoland, Davao City.
The Grillery is a “grill-your-own” BBQ Buffet Restaurant. It takes “ihaw-ihaw” to the next level of fun, sharing and community.
Grill it. Share it. Enjoy it.
We got the chance to visit the new grill-your-own-food place in the city called The Grillery for our Sun-date with my boys. This new place is located just right beside Backyard Burgers Ecoland branch located at Quimpo Boulevard near Lechonero’s and SM City Davao. We were told it has the same owner as Backyard Burgers. They opened two weeks ago on April 5, 2015.
You become your own grill master. It’s up to you how well done you want your food to be, how you want to cook your food on the grill. If you get to burn it, it’s all up to you. If you don’t know how to grill, well this is your chance to learn and practice. *wink*
First, line up at the counter table where they display all the food and you can select the ones you like to grill.
You can always come back for more. So far during our visit, they had a lot to choose from and we didn’t notice that they ran out of something we want to grill. It is a feast for meat lovers.
The menu list below based on their website:
- Fatboy’s Pork Barbecue – Dalmatian rubbed pork chunks marinated in calamansi juice, rosemary and garlic
- Dwaeji Bulgogi – pork chunks marinated in sweet and spicy Korean barbecue sauce
- Lola’s Chicken Tenders – Dalmatian rubbed chicken breast strips with thyme leaves
- Mi Corazon – chicken heart rubbed with rock salt
- Kebabulous – imported ground beef marinated in onion, garlic and turmeric
- Kumander Batikulon – chicken gizzard rubbed with rock salt
- Senorito’s Soriso – boiled pork home-made chorizo
- Senorita’s Neck – Dalmatian rubbed chicken neck marinated in calamansi juice and garlic
- Pigment – pre-marinated boiled pork skin
- Mr. Floppy Ears – pre-marinated boiled pork ears
- Vitamin Atay – chicken liver rubbed with rock salt
- Naughty & Nice – Dalmatian rubbed chicken skin
- Pork Flowers – pre-marinated boiled pork intestines
- The Fresh Catch (TFC) – the freshest seafood available in the market
- Yeeham- pork sweet ham
- Chubby Weenie – pre-steamed cocktail hotdogs
- Wow Sabawww – soup of the day
There are sauces to choose from: BBQ sauce, Spicy BBQ sauce and Satay sauce.
And since I love peanuts, I like their Satay sauce!
These are what we chose to grill at first…
I like the kebab (leftmost) and their chorizo.
I tried to tell hubby to skip the more sinful ones on their menu. He even spotted which look like simply pork fat to which I really had to say no to.
Hubby did the grilling. I tried to help him by fanning out the smoke all over away from him as much as possible. But I had to go away every now and then from the tables. As should be expected, there is a lot of smoke in this smoke house.
Our grilled food… thank you Papa!
The fun part for you in this is that you know you grilled your own food to share and enjoy eating in the company of family, friends, barkada and officemates!
From what we chose to grill, I enjoyed eating the kebab initially by putting a generous amount of satay sauce on them.
I like the fish too from the fresh seafood catch. If someone in your family or party can’t or don’t like meat-all-you-can, they can still enjoy fish-all-you can.
My little kid was fine with his Chubby Weenie all-you-can. Those are pre-steamed hotdog cocktails. I asked and the staff said they use PF tender juicy hotdog. You know we and “kids can tell”.
Kids can also enjoy the Yeeham – sweet ham shown below.
They also have premium specialty items on the menu based on their website:
- Sosy Dwaeji Bulgogi – premium cut pork chunks marinated in sweet and spicy Korean barbecue sauce (3 sticks for P89)
- Her Liemponess – Dalmatian rubbed premium cut pork marinated in calamansi juice and fresh garlic (3 sticks for P89)
- Supervitamins – bacon wrapped asparagus brushed with lemon butter sauce (3 sticks for P89)
- FTW – bacon wrapped prawn (3 sticks for P69)
- CrabBoy – bacon wrapped crab sticks (3 sticks for P69)
- POOSIT! – dried squid (3 sticks for P69)
- AHHH… TAYA’G BACON OI! – bacon wrapped chicken liver (3 sticks for P69).
Did not realize they have these specialty items listed above when we were there. Will try some of them if ever we get to go back there.
Making the most of our foodtrip there, we made one last round this time with just fish and the chorizo which tasted really good to us.
The Grillery is the new place to go these days for those meat lovers who want to eat – all – you – can – grill or grill – all – meat – you – can – eat for P169 excluding rice. I think the price is all worth it. Perhaps one can say it is the Pinoy version of the Korean or Japanese eat-all-you-can restos which we have here in Davao City where you also cook or grill your own food with a griller at the center of your table.
Those rice are for the three of us. They do not serve unlimited rice at The Grillery. They sell rice for P25 per serving. The serving is big enough for me. Don’t worry about the rice not being unlimited. Just think of enjoying eating all those you can grill with one serving of rice.
You’ll come to a point or age when you have to realize you really need to eat less rice for your own health’s sake. But then again we Filipinos love rice, so you may go ahead order more if you feel like eating more rice with your grilled unli-meat.
As for the drinks which are mostly in can, when ordered are of separate charge.
They do have bottomless iced tea. They have lemonade by the pitcher. I hope they do sell softdrinks in litro bottle. But for your health’s sake, share a can with your loved one just like we did. Remember “Share it. Enjoy it.”
They serve fruits like sliced papaya and pineapple in big chunks which is part of the eat all you can. While I like the only one pineapple chunk I ate, it did make my throat itch.
Kids have a different rate. Children 5-10 years old pay a sharing fee of P89 and children 2-4 years old pay a sharing fee of P50, excluding rice and drinks.
They do serve Kangen alkaline water for free. First heard of Kangen through the Tuna Queen herself, Maam Ellen when we visited Ellen’s Tuna Queen where they also serve Kangen water. It’s becoming a trend.
Closing time of 9PM and the smoke house is still full.
From what I have heard the place is almost always full so be there early if you want toget the best seats in the house where there is less smoke. I notice many people don’t seem to mind the smoke and they just have fun eating while grilling.
Hubby seem to had fun grilling while I and my little kid had to step away because of the smoke almost everywhere. It is not an ideal place for those prone to asthma and allergic to smoke as it is indeed literally a smoke house as it calls itself. We managed to still continue with our food trip even if my eyes started hurting and tearing up because of the smoke as the two tables next to us started to grill their food. I almost backed out because my chest started to hurt, not just my eyes but thanks so much to the kind help and understanding of Ms. Yeng and their TGSH staff who moved our table to a better location inside. Thank you!
Overall it was a really nice summer foodtrip experience! We are indeed “busog” much and it was worth the Sunday foodtrip we had with my boys at The Grillery.
The experience in this foodtrip was worth it. I agree with those who were asking if they could find a way to lessen the smoke in the area even if it is an open area.
I hope to be back again with my family for another grilling adventure this summer there, hopefully with less smoke in there. We can go back but hopefully they may allow us to choose a table near the entrance. The lady guard somehow won’t let us get the vacant table near the entrance despite a few attempts to make a request for health reasons. There was less smoke at the tables near the entrance when we dined tonight. Still thank you so much for the great service and accommodation of those kind staff who helped us at The Grillery!
