Everyone raved about it so I went over and tried it. It's okay, but nothing to rave about. I think Church's, Roy Roger's, or even KFC are better by far. My service was very quick. It filled me and hit the spot. The place looked like a hole in the wall and seemed like a pickup joint to me. I... More

Read about this place on a website and went there solely for the fried chicken. It was really good. It was the only meal we ate that wasn't seafood and we enjoyed every minute. fried chicken and a cold belikin - can't beat it!

As the reviews state - its the best fried chicken EVER! Just go and eat fried chicken with side of Belikin beer. We had mashed potatoes & coleslaw all outstanding quality and fabulous value at $9 BZD. Don't think about it..go eat fried chicken :0)

Great review of the chicken; like 99% say, the fried chicken is tasty, not greasy, and some of the best I've ever had. I don't know what the seasoning was, but it was great.Added some fries to the rice and beans and coleslaw. Washed it all down with Bellikin :)

Fried chicken ($9 BZ = $4.50 USD) best value on the Island. Chicken is perfectly seasoned (i.e. not too salty), crisp & juicy,and a variety of sides included! The steamed veggies were second to none. Our "go-to" lunch or dinner stop on Caye Caulker.

Syd's fried chicken was crispy and NOT greasy nor overly salty. The choice of sides were satisfying and tasty. The value was excellent. The backyard patio was tropically green and relaxing. Whether you want fried chicken or other Belizean chow, Definitely make a trip to Syd's.

Service was great. We had a lunch with fried chicken, coleslaw,rice & beans. Chicken was cooked to perfection! Nice seasoned flavour and crispy, with the meat still being good and juicy. Drinks were very good. Wonderful fried chicken lunch recommended.
