Here in the Philippines, you can’t eat a full meal without rice, right? Without it, even with all the necessary carbohydrates and protein in a meat, a burger will remain always as a snack for me.

But that’s because most burgers that I know of have thin patties and that wouldn’t feed my hungry (and growing) stomach enough.

Thankfully, though, burger joints have grown in number and their burgers have grown in size as well! They are competing against each other in bringing the best burgers in Cebu, and the Cebuanos are the luckiest!

21 South Burger

21 South Burger is a certified Cebuano favorite. Before its photos became viral online, I was one of the avid fans of their product. Their patties are really thick, flavorful and very juicy! The portion size is big as well, I could barely fit a bite in my mouth.

My favorite is their Bacon Mushroom Burger.

The burger looks so much better in real life, just saying! Each serving includes french fries flavored in parmesan cheese. This combination, plus their house sauce, will leave you speechless!

From their tiny stall, 21 South Burger has moved to a slightly bigger space just a block away from their original store. Their space now, though bigger, is always jampacked with customers!

Location & other details

Their headquarters is located in J&J Residences unit 105 E. Sabellano Street Punta Princesa, Cebu City. From Colon or Ayala, ride a jeepney that will take you to Punta Princesa. From San Jose Backeshop, take another ride by a tricycle and tell the driver that you are heading to J&J Residences or 21 South Burger. The fare is only 7 pesos.

21 South Burger is open every day from 4 PM to 10 PM. You may call at 0945 855 6060 or send them a message here.

Minute Burger

Yes, Minute Burger is part of our list because I feel like this brand is underrated. Minute Burger branches are growing and I could see why. However, their burgers are not being talked about, I wonder why!

At first, I thought that Minute Burger was just another Angel’s Burger but I was wrong. It is so much more, it is a shame to even compare it to Angel’s. 😉

And yes, they do have a budget for their promo materials. Their burgers and even hotdogs go in a buy-1-take-1 style which makes it even more worth it.

Backyard Burgers

Originally from Davao, Backyard Burgers have found its way to the hearts of the Cebuano people. I remember way back in 2015 when they did not have a store here yet, they opened a pop-up stall during Sinulog week and the line was crazy.

Location & other details

Sad to say, their last update on Facebook was July 2017. They posted a photo that says they were moving.

Their location is or was at Corner Archbishop Reyes Ave. & Tojong St. Cebu City. I am not sure if they are still operating but you can give them a call at 0939 924 0776. The line is busy when I called.

Anyway, if you ever find this piece of gem around Cebu, please do let us know so that we can update this post.

New Found Burger

Another burger joint that has never let a single customer down is New Found Burger. Imagine dining here and getting a huge serving with fries for only 199 pesos?

Their Facebook reviews say that their burgers are uniquely flavored. Their burger patties are tender and juicy and well-seasoned. The fries on the side is always a great complement to almost anything.
