Sports and fraternity decor adorn the walls and you can even see a row of lockers.
There’s even a beer pong room where you can pit your inebriated skills with other players.
The main is focused on Burritos, Burgers and Dogs with a few appetizer and dessert options sprinkled in between.
Start off the meal with a shareable plate of Pulled Pork Nachos (P380). Crisp nachos slathered with salsa, cheese, cream, jalapeno and pulled pork. Chicken (P380) and Vegetarian (P320) options are also available.
Gingered Pork Dorm Room Ramen (P200). Inspired by the multitudes of instant ramen cups consumed by many a college student. The MSG free broth was hearty and comforting with tender, flavorful meat. The noodles though are more mami than ramen noodles.
Trailer Park Mac and Cheese (P290). Keeping with the theme of something a college student can whip up in a jiffy but they’ve used different kinds of cheese and added crushed crackers for a different texture.
Wash your food down with interesting cocktails like the Gummy Bear (P160/glass). 3 gummy bears skewered and placed on top of the glass added a touch of whimsy. Irene said it was lightly sweet and refreshing.
The whimsy is also very evident in their choice of names for their burritos, burgers and dogs. A quick scan of the menu and you’ll see it sprinkled with pop culture and movie references.
We tried two of their atypical burritos, the Popeye (P330) and the Shrimp Salsa (P380). The Popeye gets its name from the spinach tortilla as well as the spinach stuffed inside together with brown rice, black beans, pico de gallo, sour cream, mozzarella and Monterrey jack cheese. We liked the pineapple shrimp salsa burrito more because of the blend of umami garlic shrimp and sweet pineapples, a taste not usually found in burritos.
Our favorite among all the burgers we tried was the Dirty South (P280). A chicken patty, coated in rice krispies, drizzled with honey and topped with shredded red cabbage. A crunchy pleasure of sweet and savory for your taste buds.
The other burgers we tried were the MacGruber-ger (P320) and the Eggs Benny Burger (P280). The Macgruber-ger is topped with fried noodles, sauteed mushrooms and lined with lemon aoili while the eggs benny adds a poached egg, smoked bacon, loads of bechamel sauce and a dusting of nutmeg.
The Super Mario (P300) one up the usually messy but delicious hotdog. Breaded and fried chicken sausage topped with tomato sauce, Parmesan, onions, sauteed peppers, olive oil and a pinch of chili. The sausage has a nice snap to the bite and the tangy and sharp toppings temper any cloying taste from the frying. I challenged you to eat this with your hands without it dribbling down your hands and mouth, you make a happy mess though.
The Pitbull (P300) is a cubano hotdoog creation. Griddle pressed, mustard lined brioche bun with smoked ham, Swiss cheese, pickles, oinion, jalapeno and a beef-pork frankfurter.
Their dessert selection is filled with a plethora of familiar items like the Twinkies, Sno-Ball, Pop Tarts and my personal favorite, the Choco cupcakes.
I’m not really a peanut butter fan so I was surprised I really enjoyed the Fluffernutter (P100). Marshmallow full and peanut butter in between two pieces of butter toasts. There’s another version with added Nutella called the Fluffernutteller (P140).
Skull and Bones really gets you into the the feel of the American campus and their blend of savory and sweet comfort food just seals the deal. Prices are a tad bit high for the regular college student (unless allowances have skyrocketed).
