Carol's Texan 5: Best Texan Ribs Hands Down!

When my friend invited me to try Carol's Texan 5, I have to admit I was hesitant.  It was not only unfamiliar to me and I also find it quite distant.  Yet, after my dining experience,  I just can't help but rave and share about it.

Carol's Texan 5 occupies the second floor.  There is a sufficient parking space but its usually occupied during meal hours.

What looked quaint on the outside is actually contrary on the inside as it it a bright, spacious and lively Texan themed fast food restaurant. It adopts a pay as you order system with a menu by the counter.

It had a wooden furnishing which is an evident transcendence from the Western America.

The place has impressive creativity in each section but consistent in totality with its motif.

It's a fun place where kids and adult alike can even chill and take Texan and rodeo souvenir photos.


Spud Selection
tato skins
Tato Skins (165 php)
These Tato Skins were so crunchy and flavorful with its savory bacon bits and zesty cheese This instantly captivated my palate and left me wanting for more.   Try this with their sour cream dip and I'm sure you'll be hooked like I was.

Old Time Favorite
dynamite wings
Dynamite Wings Solo (225 php/6 pcs)
I just love their Dynamite Wings which had the tangy citrus taste spiced up with some red hot chili.  The meat is plump and juicy too!  Spiciness level is within the middle of my tolerance range which is not too much but not too light either.

ultimate texan ribs
Ultimate Texan Ribs (425 php)
The Ultimate Texan Ribs is definitely a must try!  This is hands down one of the best texan ribs I have ever tried.  With or without the sauce, you'll surely fall in love with its tender and succulent pork meat that almost falls of the rack.  The sauce is lip-smacking good too!  As a foodie, it breaks my heart that this is still undiscovered by many.  I highly recommend that you try this.  For its huge portion, I find the price very reasonable.

Super Sandwiches
mushroom jack burger
Mushroom Jack Burger (205 php)

The Mushroom Jack Burger is a 100% beef patty topped with lettuce, jack cheese, bacon bits and mushrooms placed between a crunchy bun.  It's oozing cheesiness with overloaded toppings as well as wholesome juicy and chunky beefiness made each bite a sensation!

tomato shrimp basil
Tomato Shrimp Basil (220 php)
The Tomato Shrimp Basil is an al dente cooked pasta with the perfect hint of basil and generous amounts of shrimp.  It has certainly passed my standards for tangy red sauce-based pasta with flying colors.

mango cheesecake
Mango Cheesecake (195 php)
The Mango Cheesecake has a light and creamy texture which I find soothing.   While I found this too sweet, my companions enjoyed this to the last spoonful.

waffle cream
Waffle Cream (115 php)
The Waffle Cream is a golden crisp waffle topped with cool vanilla ice cream drizzled with caramel syrup and nuts.  This is a classic that never loses its touch.

lava cake
Lava Cake (155 php)
The best dessert for me is the Lava Cake.  It's rich moist chocolate cake and syrup explodes in the mouth with awesome gooeyness.  It's best eaten with the vanilla ice cream to neutralize the sweetness. 

Drinks & Cocktails
shirley temple
Shirley Temple (85 php)
For drinks I ordered my favorite, the Shirley Temple, which is a cherry flavors soda. 

Cosmopolitan (135 php)
Margarita (125 php)
seasons punch
Seasons Punch (125 php)
My companions enjoyed their cocktails too.
