Great Food, Out of the Way

Great food and amazing wait staff. By far the most personable waiter we had our entire time in San Pedro. Not the cheapest, but very good portions for what you pay. Unfortunately it is a couple mile drive south of the city, so unless your resort is in the southern part of the island it will take... read more

We are here twice on our vacation. Once they even delivered to our room. I do recommend eating here. Chicken fried steak is surprisingly good.

Loved this place! Great atmosphere, great food, great service. My favorite was the jalapeno poppers. We enjoyed it so much, we went back again. The owners were so nice and we loved our bartender, Jaime. It was truly the best food we had on the island, I would highly recommend!

The drinks were excellent! The fajitas were good, especially the shrimp. The Naked Iguana and Blue Hole drinks were perfectly made. A great place to walk to from Sunset Condominiums. The staff was really friendly. They had the Ranger game on the big screen on Saturday.

We're happy to hear you enjoyed your time at the Lone Star prisspooh. Jaime can make a large number of different drinks very well and you must've asked specifically for the Naked Iguana because we don't have that on the menu. Hopefully we'll see you back for another visit sometime in the future. More

On the south side, a short bumpy golf cart ride from the edge of town, is a great bar and tex-mex joint. Love the big screen TVS and fahitas.

Wow, what a treat. Real. Texas. Food on Ambergis Caye in Belize. I thought I would have had to eat seafood for every meal. I like carribean food, but not for every meal. It was so good we came back and ate again and again. You have to try the Jalepenous Poppers, So lighted breaded, was not heavy at all.... More

We had lunch here. The place was hot but the staff brought in 3 fans to keep us as cool as possible. The waiter was very helpful in selecting the dishes and all the food came out fresh and tasty.

Oh my! This place was a gem! We had a party of 8 and we all got something different. Everyone left very satisfied and bellies were happy. The food was large portions and delicious. The staff was friendly and attentive, and the restaurant had great ambiance!! We will definitely go back.

Beef didn't taste like beef and the mosquitoes were awful inside the restaurant. Cheese in the enchiladas was not even melted. Other food was OK but I know there are better options on the island.

This appeared to be a nice little bistro off the beaten path, on the unpaved road going south from San Pedro. We stopped to quench our thirst and have appetizers. The guacamole (about 1/3 cup) came with exactly 16 chips, and I forget the second thing we ordered, but it was skimpy, too. Together with our 2 Belikin beers and... More
