    Went there today. First, it is a nice area, ample parking. No air-con so it is a little warm but cross breezes and ceiling fans are nice.

    We ordered the chicken inasal, baby back ribs and a cheese burger with the potato wedges.

    Chicken, flavorful, well cooked but just a tad dry.

    Baby back ribs, absolutely delightful. Moist, tender and very flavorful.

    Cheese burger. A first for me on a couple of fronts. Burger was bigger than the bun. Plenty of lettuce, tomato and onion. First time I actually had to cut a burger and had to eat it with a fork. Could not get it into the mouth for a full bite. Potato wedges were not oily or greasy.

    More than the two of us could eat. Nice for take out. Service was good, staff friendly. I have eaten at the original Lord Byron's (at least I think it is) in Bacolod. They are good, but this is better. Definitely worth a try and a return trip.

    Agree. We went there last week and definitely recommended the huge burgers. Suggest you get there around 5:30pm before the big crowd, otherwise it may takes little extra time to bring your order.

    Boy did I have a different experience! My wife and I went there for lunch last week, we each ordered a burger, and we ordered two orders of back ribs to take out for dinner. The burgers were huge alright, but raw in the middle and the taste was bad (like the meat was not good), the bun was much smaller than the burger and they were very dried out so that first try to take a bite and they crumbled in your hand leaving a mess. Neither of us finished our burger, just sort of ate around the edges. The take out ribs were wrapped in tinfoil and when we got home and unwrapped them - just gross - just big slabs of slimy fat that was way under cooked and nearly raw. We tried to cut the fat off and find some meat that we could put in a pan and cook but there was almost no meat and what was there was red and raw. On top of all that, the service was awful. I will not go back there again.

    Could it have been the parking attendant filling in for the cook? LOL

    I don't know.
    Try DAD's Gastro Park, E J. Blanco Dr, Dumaguete.
    I have been there twice and the ribs from UNO's Smoke House were much better than Lord Byron's.

    I have tried UNOs at Dad's Park, they were even worse! I took one bite and spit it out, never had any that were so bad, I threw the order in the garbage making sure the guys in the booth saw me do it. I walked over behind their booth where they had their smoker set up and saw a big pile of old scrap lumber -- yes, like 1x4 boards, and that was what they were chopping up an using for their smoker. That's why the flavor was like the smoke from a house fire. I asked them if they were sure that was safe because maybe those boards were chemically treated or something and they said oh yes it was safe they use boards like that all the time for their smoker. I have never heard of that and it gave the ribs the flavor of an old burning sofa.

    I do like the Jurassic Ribs at Moons, and also the ribs at Captain Ribbers which is right next to Moons are good.

    What a terrible name. My brain reads that as "DAD's Place-Where-Sh*t-Is-Made Park". Why would you use the first part of "Gastrointestinal" for a name where food was being prepared? Do all the meals there come with a free side of cholera? :sick:

    There is also this:
    https://www.healthdirect.gov.au/gastroenteritis
    "Gastroenteritis, also known as ‘gastro’, is a common illness that can cause vomiting and diarrhoea. Many types of gastro are easily spread. Gastro is not usually serious but it can make you very dehydrated. Milder forms can be managed at home by drinking fluids."

    Dad's Diarrhea Park....yummy, that's where I want to eat!

    Yes the ribs are very good, and the curry dishes also.
