The reviews are mixed. Some dishes are so-so while other stands out. I decided to get it since it's a cheap deal and I always believed that you get your money's worth so I don't expect anything grand that is comparable to hotel food.

|Chicken Parmesan (Php 425.00)|
This dish is good for 2 people but on our case, we end up ordering another dish since we're starving. We didn't take an afternoon snack thus the gluttony. What can I say about this dish? I like the chicken with lots of cheese on top of it. Chicken meat is soft but don't expect that the coating on the chicken is crunchy. I think it's cooked that way. Now on the pasta, if I will be the only one eating this I preferred white sauce over the red sauce since I find the sauce sour like a typical Italian pasta. I wonder what their white sauce tastes like...
|Strike and Spare Minor League (Php 315.00)|
Spare ribs in National Sports Grill Signature Sauce. You're probably wondering why there's a minor league, well it means to say that it's the junior or smaller serving of the dish. The spare ribs itself is good for 2 people but you have to order an extra rice for this dish. The extra garlic rice costs Php 35. As for the coleslaw, we split it in half. The dish is good as I didn't put too much sauce since based on my experience in eating spare ribs, the sauce makes the meat even sweeter and I don't like that. Good thing there's veggies to balance out the grilled taste of the spare ribs plus the sauce.My initial reaction when I saw the price of the shakes was "it's pricey!" I was baffled to see that there's a generous amount of fruit shakes in the glass. I was not able to finish all of it. Well, that's just me. Hubby was able to finish off his watermelon shake. I ordered mango shake. Both shakes need a little sugar. I'm just used to the taste of Fruitas shakes so that's my benchmark.
|Fruit Shakes (Php 125.00)|
Our total bill amounted to Php 1,116.53. We have to pay for the service charge and the excess of the food we ordered since we only used 2 vouchers which is equivalent to Php1,000.
Now let me discussed the food that we ordered for our lunch the following day:
|Big Meals! =)|
|Cajun Peppercorn Burger with Chips (Php 375.00)|
|Home Run Sample Platter (Php 695.00)|
For our drinks, we just ordered iced tea for the three of us - me, my friend and hubby. It's just a regular iced tea flavor, nothing special. Iced tea costs Php 90 or 95 per glass.
Would I recommend it to friends? Yeah, I think the place is a good venue to catch up with friends especially for males and sports fanatic. Imagine yourself having a glass of beer with the Home Run Sampler Platter on the table with friends watching a Pacquiao fight or a NBA Finals Game. Though there are some misses with the food, NSG is still worth a try. Next time that we saw a deal, I'll buy another set of vouchers to try their other "best" and recommended food in their menu.
