Where to Eat in Angeles: Cactus Jack Smokehouse
Previously, we’ve excited your palate with the crave-worthy eats at Namari Japanese Bistro. Now, we’ll take you next door to the all-American Cactus Jack Smokehouse. Run by Chef Chris Oronce, Cactus Jack prides in their meats seasoned with their special smokehouse rub, slow-cooked to perfection in-house. So read on and prepare to take a bite of one of Angeles’ best barbecue joints. 🙂
Best Smokehouse in Angeles Pampanga
Day 2 of our stay in Best Western Metro Clark Hotel was a packed one. We definitely did not waste any time to explore the historic and culture sights around Angeles City. As well as having some quality R&R around the hotel facilities (e.g. rooftop infinity pool and indoor gym). So needless to say, we were all extra hungry come dinner time.
It was only fitting that we indulge on some good eats to end our busy day. And indulge we did. For dinner, Chef Chris prepared a special meaty feast for our group. And while our meaty platter isn’t typically included in the standard menu, it was indeed a special treat for all of us – Tasty, Smoky, Filling!
Let me give you a quick roundup of the Cactus Jack Smokehouse bestsellers included in our meat platter. It had calamari, buffalo chicken wings, roasted chicken, crispy pata, cornbread, a sort of cheese fondue, cornbread and of course, Cactus Jack’s finger-licking homemade Baby Back Ribs.
Honestly, everything was on point taste-wise. But I personally enjoyed the flavorful calamari and the smoky roasted chicken (actually tasted like ribs). The cheese fondue that came with toasted bread was also a hit. But of course, the Baby Back Ribs was king of the dinner table. The meat was tender and fall-off-the-bone and had a sweet tangy savory flavor. Which was further enhanced by the delicious homemade sauce by Cactus Jack Smokehouse.We paired our meats with some dirty rice and a tasty bowl of caesar salad.
Before finishing off the night with some ooey gooey s’mores on a skillet. Then finally downing everything with their unli margarita.
