Pigar-pigar is one of the must try dish in dagupan. This is where my friends & I have lunch when we were in college. Their cara beef is "makunat" but is very tasty. It is budget-friendly and has clean and good ambience unlike other pigar-pigar stalls. Anyways, you must try it! Have fun! ☺

I would say that your visit to Dagupan City is not complete unless you try Pigar-Pigar dish. I had it a few times and it is really good. The meat is flavorful and tasty but it depends on the vendor. I am not familiar who I say the best but I recommend trying it out just for fun and experience.

Went there all excited to taste Dagupan's Pigar Pigar and Kalesles and was a bit disappointed. The meat is tough and taste like your regular Tapa. Kaleskes is like Papaitan without the "pait". Me and my friend tried to put Calamansi to the soup and yes, it taste like papaitan. I don't know if the problem is with us, not... More

Good and clean ambience. Rice toppings are delicious, affordable and hot. We tried the premium cara-beef pigar pigar: tasty but really tough and we had difficulty in chewing them. Could work out something probably to make it teeth-friendly.

It was a hot noon time and my friend was told that this place had very good pigar pigar. Can't complain, it was actually good and the pricing was reasonable! It was really hot out and at first we were looking for a place that had airconditioning, we were trying to look thru the blinds if they did have airconditioning... More

Late night stop at the street stand on a Friday night at this pigar-pigar locale. Great tasting meat(beef or carabao who knows) but surely deliciously prepared with lots of beer--the lager kind.

If you happen to visit Dagupan City by chance, whether for business or leisure, eating pigar-pigar, or Dagpuan's version of braised/sauteed beef, is a must-try! Of all the food joints located in the city center, Great Taste Fastfood and Pigar-Pigar serves the best of its kind! The meat is perfectly cooked, and one won't mind the 10-15 minutes preparation time... More

Tried this restaurant recently upon the recommendation of some friends in Dagupan. I was impressed with their Pigar-pigar (Carabeef) because it was done right, meaning it was not tough unlike the first time I tried Pigar-pigar in the usual streetside setting. What's more is they have an indoor area that is airconditioned. Another must-try is their bangus sisig which is... More

This is the first time I ate pigar-pigar and it was very fantastic! We just waited for some time because we were more than 50 and gave the staffs so much headache but I was impressed with their composure and still managed to give us a smile even on extreme pressure! Approved!
