Mr Jones in Greenbelt 5 is inspired by the 1960's contemporary diner. I love the comfortable sea-foam-colored vinyl diner chairs and the casual atmosphere of the restaurant. This neon sign above the open kitchen kicks up the cooking action.
My J ordered his favorite on the menu- Tapa Overload (P295). Every time we eat here this is what he orders. The meat is thinly- sliced and very tender and savory. The crispy garlic chips add more flavor and texture. It's served with egg and atchara- just like our local tapsilog.
This is what I had- Mr Jones Classic Burger (P320). The server recommended this to us since my first choice on the menu wasn't available that time.
Look at the fries. Very similar to??? Yes, KFC fries! But I tell you, Mr Jones fries are more delicious and filling. I remember one time when my J and I dined here I only had a 'bucket' of Mr Jones fries and chocolate milkshake for dinner and I was very full after eating. I couldn't stop munching on the fries. The crust is crunchy but the tender (and hot) inside.
The burger is truly heaven! The grilled patty is thick and juicy. I didn't finish the bread (although it is really delicious) because I chose to eat the patty and the other fillings. I will definitely come back for this burger!
The restaurant is small and most of the time it is full especially during the evening. There's an al fresco area which can accommodate around 40 persons just in case you don't get a seat inside.
The prices are a little bit steep but the food is superb and really worth every peso. The servings are huge and are good for sharing.
