Wobbly Boot is no frills dining at its best and represents excellent value for money. The menu is not large but rather concentrates on specific items which have proved popular amongst it's clientele. Between 11:30 to 3:00 this place is always busy with an eclectic mixture of friendly locals and long term tourists all sitting around enjoying a meal and a drink together with a growing base of new clientele who are hearing about the Wobbly Boot and its large servings of good quality food at very reasonable prices. The locals here seemed very friendly and whilst we were dining one even rang the bell and bought a round of drinks for everyone customer in the place. The Wobbly Boot reminds me in many ways of the pub/restaurant in the VFW which is renowned watering hole for older expats and people on a set budget.
The Wobbly Boot is a fairly small room capable of seating a maximum of twenty people at any one time. This combined with the subdued color scheme, comfortable seating, aroma of home cooked food wafting from the kitchen, friendly service and a cast of characters who have made this their home away from home all combine to create a cozy sort of Cheers like atmosphere but on a much smaller scale and with trappings of Filipino culture in conjunction with American culture. One thing I really liked about was the friendly approach adopted by the owner. There are little hints of this everywhere including the smiling waitresses and a series of caricatures of regular customers painted above the bar.
There are three separate eating tables here one in the far corner which seats four people another one by the front window and another table which has a computer on it but can be used for eating if required. Patrons can also sit around the bar on the bar stools and enjoy a meal and a drink. In this respect it reminded me very much of the now defunct Mogambo café in Makati. The tables in keeping with the general tone of the place are fairly basic and typify the no frills approach. They are plastic, they wobble just as the establishments name would suggest and they are not covered with table cloths. If Yats symbolizes fine dining then the Wobbly Boot is it’s antithesis.
This is certainly basic exemplified with large servings of wholesome food at affordable prices. There is no such thing as presentation or any fancy frills. This is a place for the people who are price conscious and are after value for money. There are also two metal tables outside under the canopy and these make an excellent area to sit and read, enjoy a good meal or just indulge in a refreshing drink as you watch the world go by.This is truly a slice of old school Angeles when times were easier, more relaxing and the world moved at a slower pace.
