Great lunch!

Went here for lunch following recommendations after a great morning snorkelling. Lots of locals eating here which is a good sign. Had some fry and stew chicken with slaw and rice and beans which were really delicious. Nice rum punch as well on a hot day.

Stopped by for a quick take out dinner. Ladies there cooked up some chicken for me with sweet sauce and rice/beans, coleslaw. Good price and delicious.

This was our fresh shrimp night. We started with shrimp ceviche, which was excellent. I had the shrimp fajitas for my entrée while my girlfriend had the shrimp kabob. The fajita sauce is not the same as you would find in a Mexican restaurant in the states. It was good, but different. Both the food and service were high quality.

Great place to eat popular with the locals. Service isn't what you would call fast (then again where is fast on Caye Caulker) but food is good

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!

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 :)
