Food Fight!: McDonald’s vs. Jollibee (Team Battle 2)

October 9, 2018
Food Fight is back again this week to continue our three round food battle between two of the biggest fast food joints over here in la Pilipinas, McDo and Jollibee.
In this round , we pit chickens, gravy, and pies against each other in brutal commenter on commenter action as your votes decides which side ultimately reigns supreme.  But, before we get to that, let’s see how the voting went for last week’s team battle.  I went through all your comments and tallied the results. It took a bit of effort but I must say, I had a great time doing it.


  2. Fries – IIIII IIIII IIII – 14 votes
  3. Sundae – IIIII IIIII IIIII – 15 votes


  1. Burger – IIIII IIIII IIIII III – 18 votes
It’s like that, son.

Mcdonald’s – 2, Jollibee-1.
I did not expect the fight to go down like that. Also, for those that said “Neither!” or “Both!” you cancelled each other out. I counted. It worked, surprisingly well.
This week, we’re letting some of  the deep fried brigade continue the fight.

Chicken McDo vs. Chickenjoy and McDonald’s gravy vs. Jollibee Gravy

We’re voting for two things here, so keep that in mind, the chicken and the gravy. In the coming weeks, we’re coming out with a more in-depth look at some of the Metro’s top fast food fried chicken places, so look out for that. For now, though, it’s your vote that counts.

Apple Pie vs. Peach Mango Pie

I was going to include Tuna Pie in the poll, but I wanted to stick to things we know will be around forever. Jollibee Tuna Pie is but a fleeting love affair.
So there are your contestants. Voting starts now through the comments section. While we can use a plug-in to create an actual poll, it has been really interesting to hear the reasons and reactions to your choices.  Feel free to team-up, make alliances, and do whatever else you want. You guys are amazing.

Vote for your picks in these categories!
  1. Chicken
  2. Gravy
  3. Pie

Next week, Big Macs, Champs, and Breakfast Meals, oh my!

  4. Nons Superable says:

    1. Chicken – McDo (though what works for me is the breading. What usually happens is I get a lot of breading than the chicken itself. Haha!)
    2. Gravy – Jollibee (McDo’s gravy seems to be a really watery version of their old gravy. Gah.)
    3. Pie – Jollibee (Perfect combination – Peach mango pie and McDo’s hot fudge sundae, side order of McDo fries.)

    All Jollibee for chicken, gravy, and pie. Reprezent. I also like it when my spicy Chickenjoy ends up having too much spicy dust. o_o

  18. lalaboomboom says:

  19. JON says:

    Chicken/Gravy/Pie – Jollibee, by a slim margin.

  20. Romila Marie says:

    Chicken & Gravy – Jollibee
    Pie – Mcdo

  21. who says:

    Gravy =Mc do (unlimited gravy)
    Chicken = chickenjoy
    Pie = Peach mango 🙂

  22. Straight Jollibee for me! McDo’s chicken is just blah. Their apple pie is good, but peach mango is just better, especially nung bata ako. Mas madami pa siyang laman na prutas sa loob dati.

    Jolibee, please make a premium version of the peach mango, I miss the one I grew up with. Yung pie ngayon puro syrup na lang, bilang na bilang na lang yung fruit bits. 🙁

  23. cel says:

    Jollibee for the gravy and chicken fo’ sho’ but I have loved mcdo’s apple pie (despite hearing that the filling isn’t made completely out of apples) ever since I was a kid.

  24. ishi says:


  25. Anthony C. Monteiro says:

    chicken and gravy – Mcdo, pie- (hands down) Mcdo!!!!

  26. chari says:

    Chicken & Gravy: Jollibee
    Pie goes to McDo!

  27. Jollibee chicken with McDo Gravy would do just fine for me 😉
    & I’d take Jollibee Peach Mango pie over McDo’s Apple pie.

  28. Kaye says:

    all the way Jollibee – chickenjoy, gravy and peach mango pie. Bubuyog wins!

  29. Kris says:

    Jollibee all the way

    I have realized how nothing compares to jollibee since i have always been craving for it despite the gazillions of fastfood that serve fried chicken here in dubai.

  30. Kath says:

    Jollibee all the way man!! Mcdo’s chix breading is weird and tough. Their gravy has a medicine after taste. And peach mango pie is love.

  31. robert says:

    Peach mango pie is way better than the apple *cough* sayote and cinnamon *cough* pie of McDo. I also like the fact that Jollibee’s Chickenjoy is juicier and bigger than Chicken McDo. Jollibee’s gravy is better tasting, too. So all 3 go to Jollibee! 🙂

  32. Chicken goes to Jollibee, Pie to Mcdo~

  33. tastenoevil says:

    Chicken? Jolibee wins because it’s more fragrant and also bec. Mc Do’s chicken is furiously coated with flour I think Jollibee’s chicken is more sulit bec. it’s mor meaty. Gravy hmmm hands down jollibee wins. It gets harder when it comes to choosing pies, Jollibee’s pie crust sucks but the fillingmakes up for it the crust sticks to ur teeth, Mc do has a better pie crust its light airy and crunchy an almost perfect puff pastry but the filling is a bit blah. So I guess Jollibee wins the pie vote bec. the filling is more imprtnt:)

  34. Chicken goes to Jollibee but gravy to Mcdo. Pies go to Jollibee!!!!!

  35. Abbey Sy says:

    Chicken, gravy and pie all Jollibee!!!

  36. Chicken Joy and Gravy
    Apple Pie

  37. ChinaKingRat says:

    Jollibee all the way for this round!

  38. Raine Santos says:

    Chicken : MCDO!!

    Gravy: MCDO!!!


  39. Marian Rose Bunao says:

    cant decide on the chicken, but i’ll go with peach mango pie 🙂

  40. geonelle says:

    chicken- can’t decide lol
    pies- peach mango pie!!!!

  41. hbsruiz says:

    jollibee – chicken & gravy
    mcdo – (apple) pie

  42. Dee says:

    I miss Jollibee’s banana langka pie.

  43. GLUTONBABE says:


  44. Sam Manalili says:

    Chicken- Jollibee

  45. Chicken: Chickenjoy all the way! Go Jollibee!
    Gravy: I don’t ever remember dousing my chicken in Jollibee’s gravy, so go for the win, Mcdo.
    Pie: This is sooo hard! I am absolutely in love with Jollibee’s pie bread (?) but the filling tastes sooo artificial. Mcdo has lackluster bread but the filling is awesomeballs, on the other hand. Aaaa. 🙁 I’ve never eaten as many as 9 Apple pies in one sitting though so you go, Jollibee!

    • On second thought, I just remembered possibly the reason why I douse my chicken woth Mcdo gravy: it’s kind of watery, you don’t really taste anything unless you pile it on. Changing my vote: chicken, gravy, and pie JOLLIBEE ALL THE WAY! 😀

  51. Badet Siazon says:

    Jollibee wins for me! 3 votes goes to Chicken, gravy and pie (tuna or peach mango) to JOLLIBEE.

  52. Yuki says:

    Does Greenwich serve Jollibee’s chicken? If they do, then my vote goes to Jollibee. McDo’s is kinda dry.

    Gravy goes to McDo because Jollibee’s is bland and too watery. Gross.

    Pie goes to McDo as well.

  53. Maimai Hernando says:
