I dragged Sergei, who jumped at the chance of a free lunch and my excellent company, to Chili’s. To be fair with my burger comparison, I ordered the plain Oldtimer burger without cheese. I always order a plain burger so I can taste the quality of the beef and not all the cheese and other toppings that also add a ton of calories and fat. I ordered my burger medium on a whole wheat bun.
The heel of the bun had mustard, pickles and onions -things I don’t like in my burger. So I flipped the burger and just ate it with the crown and the lettuce and tomatoes. I loved their fries which were thick, crisp, lightly salted, not greasy and still had their skin on.
At first bite I knew this was it. The burger patty was thick and made of 100% pure beef and nothing else. All it needed was a few shakes of salt and it was perfect. It was a tad dry but it was probably due to the lean meat. This is my kind of burger. It tasted like ground steak. I offered Sergei only tiny taste of my burger because I didn’t want to share. This burger was worth every peso. Some may say it’s expensive. I don’t think so.

Chili’s is an American Restaurant that veers away form the notion that american food equals bland food. I like this place better than TGIF and Burgoo….way way better. The burgers are indeed so good!!! Wait till its World Hamburger Day..Chili’s usually sells their burger at half the price.
Have you tried Wham! Burger? It’s masarap also!
I’d like to suggest to you BBB (Big Better Burgers). They have two locations in Quezon City. One in SM North Annex, near SaveMore. But I suggest you go to their original branchat the 2nd floor of Shoppes, Victoria Tower in Timog (near Quezon Ave.). It’s much quieter and you wouldn’t have to wait for tables unlike in their SM annex branch. Their price is surprisingly low for the quality of lean beef they use. I know you like to try the burgers plain, but if you will have room for one more after your first burger, please try their jalapeno burgers. It’s got a little kick to it.
Thanks for the suggestion. I will surely try that!
I also love the burgers at Chili’s!!!
had the burger in chili’s kanina. it was good!
