The last time I went there, it seems standards have slipped. The bbq taste was somewhat lacking and meat seemed less succulent. It also wasn’t as crowded, maybe they need to do some quality control. Wait staff are still as nice as ever.

We almost walked past the restaurant, because it is fairly small, but the wonderful aroma of BBQ pork drew us in. A quaint little restaurant - be prepared as the menu is only in Japanese. Luckily, between our broken Japanese and the waitress ‘ broken...More

Butadon is simply delicious. I tried few Butadon in Hokkaido and this place was one of the best. Butadon was the only thing they served in Pancho and all you needed to choose was the size. Luckily the waitress spoke some English so ordering food...More

This small shop only fits 25-30 customers. A queue forms before opening so be prepared. The menu is concise. Butadon and nothing else. 2,4,6 or 8 pieces of pork on rice. Miso soup. Drinks. That's it. Dedicated to one dish only. The meat is wonderfully...More

If you travel to Obihiro, bbq pork rice is their specialty and is a must try item. The restaurant is just a road across the Obihiro bus terminal or JR Obhihiro Station. It is easy and convenient to access to. I seldom try bbq pork...More

Although they are quite efficient, but they are by no means a fast food shop. There is another shop in the JR station which you may like to try out.
