Lolo Claro's crispy fried chicken ala Max's

Had lunch at Lolo Claro's last Saturday with my wife and supervisors.
Their original outlet is in Tanza, Cavite (or in Naic, not quite sure).
They opened a branch in Trece Martires. It's located along Governor's Drive, across from the city hall of Trece Martires.
I first heard of this restaurant from a friend of mine and he said that the fried chicken tastes like that of Max's.
They have a very simple menu line up. They have combo meals of chicken with pansit, liempo with pansit, lumpiang shanghai with pansit. They also have chopsuey and fresh lumpiang ubod as well as fried lumpiang ubod.
Of course, their house specialty is the crispy fried chicken.
The place is a bit small, they had about 10 round monobloc tables that sits 4. They had one window type airconditioner with wall fans to augment the aircon.
The Tourism Officer of Trece said that the place is always packed on weekdays, every lunch and even sometimes during dinner.

We ordered chopsuey and 2 whole fried chickens.

Their fried chicken did look and smell like that of Max's. It also tasted similar to that of Max's but not as close to the real thing. They even have Jufran banana ketchup just like in Max's.

Nevertheless, we enjoyed our lunch and said that if we craved for crispy fried chicken, we could just go here.

They're open From Monday to Saturday for lunch and dinner.

So, to those in the area or are passing through, check out Lolo Claro's.

Yes i agree with u masarap talaga kay Lolo Claro's at very affordable pa. ayon sa kwento yung owner nagwork daw sa Max before..the original Lolo Claros is located in Maragondon, Cavite. Mon to Sat lang sila open because the owner is a Pastor si Pastor Bernie Born Again Christian sila.

hi, thanks for the comment.

yes, i was told that the original outlet is in Maragondon, Cavite. and yes, the owner is a pastor. i saw him during the provincial tourism council meeting at the capitol. i was also told the same thing that he used to work for max's that's why he's able to replicate the taste of the fried chicken.
