We decided to go to Syd's for takeout. We heard about the fried chicken and it lived up to it's reputation. Perfectly fried, not greasy, quarter of a chicken, plus a large serving of rice and beans and coleslaw, all for $9BZ. Loved it!

All the locals told us we needed to try this place and we did and were not disappointed. The fried chicken is incredible. Not greasy and so crispy. The rice and beans is also some of the best we have tasted. You will not be disappointed with your 5 dollar meal. Not chew on the food and the staff were... More

There's a reason all the locals eat here; incredible fried chicken, the best rice and beans in town, all for 9.00 bze. We ate here once and had to go back the very next night. Syd's isnt flashy, but the experience is authentic, the food is great, and their small courtyard in back makes for a nice evening.

After a long, hot day snorkeling, what better way than to finish off with some fried chicken, beans & rice, and a fanta!

We had the fried chicken and didn't think it was anything special, not juicy, the breeding was good. We had much better chicken even on our snorkeling and diving trips. We went for lunch so maybe it's better at dinner.

The fry chicken is great. Get that. The rice and beans were also tasty. Avoid the sad salads. Local and cheap.

This unpretentious spot is inland not on the beach front but worth finding. Pleasant waitress in a clean simple setting. The take out chicken was as good as locals and expats told me! So crispy almost like broasted? For $9 Bze/ $4.50 usd I got too hot and crispy pieces along with a choice of two sides. The creamy coleslaw... More

This is a wonderful place to sample local food for a great price. The back patio had a nice breeze to enjoy while you sip a beer and wait for the best cook and best priced meal on the island!
