Mang Inasal (Hiligaynon for Mr. Barbecue) is a barbecue fast food restaurant chain in the Philippines established in Iloilo City in 2003. It is one of the fastest-growing food companies in the country, specializing in grilled chicken.

The company was started by Edgar Sia II, a young enterprising architect, who owned his first business at the age of twenty. Sia engaged in the food business at twenty-six years of age, opening the first Mang Inasal branch in December 2003 at the Robinsons Mall Carpark in Iloilo City. The restaurant was an instant success, despite stiff competition from other, more established grilled-food restaurants.

The chain opened its first branches within the Visayan region, then expanded to neighboring Mindanao to the south before spreading to Metro Manila. Thereafter, the company started franchising in 2005. By 2008, Mang Inasal had opened 23 restaurants, with ten being franchised.[2]

In October 2010, 70% of Mang Inasal's branches were acquired by Jollibee Foods Corporation, the largest Philippine food chain company, for ₱3 billion ($68.8 million).[3] As of March 2014, the chain has grown to about 460 stores.[1]


The chain is open for lunch and dinner, offering Filipino cuisine, including grilled chicken, pork and milkfish, served with rice (some stores offer unlimited rice). Non-grilled dishes in the chain's menu include sisig, pansit bihon (Filipino thin noodles), and dinuguan with puto. Desserts offered include Philippine snack foods like ginataang bilo-bilo (tapioca pearls), halo-halo, banana spring roll with ice cream, among others. The chain's prices may vary in select stores.[4]
