Zark’s Burger Iloilo is located at the New Wing, Lower Ground floor of SM City Iloilo. It’s famous for its tagline: “The greasier the better.” But is it really?
The place is pretty standard. They have good decor: red walls, photos of champions (which I think supports the whole ‘gigantic burgers’ and ‘food for the champ’ concept of this restaurant), and of course a frame of people who won the burger challenges. We came here on a Sunday and a lunch time, and I know that it’s understandable that we don’t get a seat right away… but it was a bit disappointing to see some staff walking past the podium without even acknowledging our presence or asking if we were able to have a reservation already. We (me and my family) stood in front of the podium for a full 2 minutes before my mom called the attention of a crew member to ask for a seat. Once seated though, a staff immediately cleared the table and gave us the menu.
Me, my mom, and my sister all ordered the Zark’s Ultimate Burger (1/4 pound Cheeseburger with cheese sauce on a bed of fresh veggies, topped with sauteed mushrooms and bacon) for ₱150.00 each. While my brother got the Jawbreaker (Triple Cheeseburger with spam, bacon, and overflowing cheese sauce) which is also served with 400g of fries for only ₱290.00 but you can get for free if you finish it within 5 minutes.
For all the Minor League Burgers, you’d have to add ₱35.00 for fries and drinks and add ₱60.00 for fries and bottomless drinks.For Major League Burgers on the other hand, all you need to do is add ₱35.00 to get bottomless drinks since it’s all served with fries already.
