It's a little off the beaten path but well worth the walk. They have a nice garden in the back and we had some cheap rum drinks while we waited on our fried chicken. It was amazing! Growing up in the south I have pretty...More

The food is always outstanding and very reasonably priced. The best fried chicken in Belize. Very diverse menu highlighting local catch. Very friendly staff. Love this place. I am a regular anytime I am on Caye Caulker.

Best fried chicken on the island. Great lunch special $9 BZ for chicken and 2 sides. A bit slow but the wait is worth it.

A lot of locals like this place, and for good reason. The food is tasty, authentic, and inexpensive. This restaurant is not supposed to be fancy and pretentious, just good. And it delivers. Service can be pretty spotty at times.

My husband and sister and brother-in-law ate at Syd's twice. The first time two of us got the whole fried fish and my husband got the shrimp fajitas. Everything was good. The fish were cooked perfectly and the fajitas came with homemade tortillas. The next...More

I was the first dinner customer and my fried chicken was dried out and tasteless. My sides not much better. I don't understand the good reviews.
