Reviewed 24 June 2013

If you want to try true belizean island inspired food then go see Charles! 6 days a week he always sells out of food. This is a cant miss meal if you visit Caye caulker!

“The budget man....”
Reviewed 19 June 2013

The budget mans food was delicious and fresh. He is just a tiny street vendor but his food is excellent. The quantity and quality of the food was great. He is also quite humorous.

“Great food and awesome person”
Reviewed 16 June 2013

This guy can cook! Affordable great food and big portions! He can be found in front of Paradise Too hotel, highly recommended. Other vendors may charge the same, but will give you tiny portions, GO BUDGETMAN!

“Tasty Bargain”
Reviewed 10 June 2013

We ate with the Budgetman twice while on Caye Caulker. His service was greatly, very friendly and easy to talk with.

We tried jerked shrimp, jerked conch, and stewed pork, all main dishes were great. Each meal comes with two sides, I think we had grilled vegetables, beans and rice, and coconut rice...can't remember what else. All meals come with a friend plantain which was delicious! You can also try his homemade habanero sauce, VERY TASTY if you like some spice.

There are a few negatives about eating with the Budgetman....First, his food isn't piping hot like it would be from a restaurant. He cooks at kitchen then brings his food to the street in large pots with no method to maintain the heat. He doesn't really have a designated dining room, so once you get your food you need to find a spot to eat (not very hard), food is served in styrofoam (earth conscious folks might not like this).

Overall, Budgetman was one of our favorite places to eat. At $7.50 U.S. dollars, this price is nearly impossible to beat....large portions too. Keep up the good work Budgetman!
