“Great Lobster Burrito and pork papusa”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

We were told by several locals and the owners of the resort we were staying at to give this hole in the wall restaurant a try. We were up for the challenge, as everything else that was suggested during our trip was a success. We were so amazed at the portion of the lobster burrito, we shared it and barely finished it. Great price as well for so much lobster. Excellent accolades lining the walls for their accomplishments!

“Best Little Local-Food Place”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

Title says it all. And, across the street, is a little grill thing going on outside on the sidewalk that does appetizer thingys (at really good prices). But Waruguma gets you in, fed, and out quickly. Been there several times, with 6 to 10 people, and everyone raved.

“Good Cheap Fresh Food”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

Waruguma is another one of those places you would pass right by except that someone recommended it.

I feel in love with their papusa's which I have never had before. Corn flour hand pressed around meat and cheese filling and then grilled. Really really good. Ate there twice. The first time I ordered the chicken kebob and got a chicken burrtio instead, but it was really good so I said meh, and dove in.

Nothing fancy, but good food.

“What a surprise! Order lobster!”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

This place looks like some old dingy shack in town, but don't be fooled! They have awesome papusas, and you have to order a lobster burrito! It is soooo big, and comes with an extra lobster tail on the side! The lobster tostadas were mighty tasty as well. True Belizean experience with no touristy airs. Loved it and will definitely return.
