Cheap places only give you a deep-fried moist towelette.

Is Jollibee any good?

One opened up in the area a little while ago, and there was some buzz about it, but I've never even heard of the place.

Meh, stuff happens, she's fine, she'll get restitution of some kind.

A fried towel is like, one if the least concerning food farkups I can think of. I mean, it's fried and nobody ate it.

It's a thing in the Philippines.  So the buzz might have been from Filipinos and/or people who were stationed there before Mt. Pinatubo blew up.

They opened up one here in Arizona around 9 months ago. It's decent. The chicken is good. I'd rate it above Churches, below KFC/Popeyes. Mashed potatoes are just meh. Adobo fried rice is actually pretty delicious. I can't speak to the quality of their other Filipino dishes with my Caucasian taste buds, but my wife likes their Pancit and the Mango pies.

Hope that helps a bit. Back to lurking.

It's not bad. I like the fried chicken and rice. The spaghetti is a travesty.

What needs to be understood is the Philippines was and to some extent still is a pretty poor country. People go to malls for the simple reason that they're air conditioned. Going to a fast food place like Jolibee's was considered a special treat. In the US, they opened to appeal to the nostalgia of Filipino immigrants. While it's not my first choice, I do have fond memories of my family in Cebu exclaiming, "We're going to Jolibee's!" and enjoying the hell out of their meal.

It's been shut down in our town multiple times for health violations and there's no way any of that food on their menu looks appetizing. Looks like a punchlady who's given up in life.

i had a boss from the philipines and i asked her once why there weren't philipino restaurants the way there were chinese ones, and she told me that they didn't go to restaurants and preferred to make their food at home. she seemed a little uncomfortable so i dropped the subject, but i would have followed up with pointing out that a philipino restaurant would be mostly interested in attracting others to their food, not just what could be a small philipino population in the area. i was alive during the time a ton of veitnamese people came to our area as refugees, and within twenty years i can think of four veitnamese restaurants in my relatively small town with awesome food like everyone's favorite soup, pho, but still zero philipino restaurants. such a shame :(
