Best Fried Chicken

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.

Had the fried chicken for lunch one day. It was a bit of a wait, but who's in a hurry? Enjoyed a few adult beverages and watched the world go by outside before our meal was served. Delicous chicken served with cole slaw and potatoes. All for $4.50 USD.

Tried having lunch here today based on TripAdvisor reviews. We waited over an hour for our food to be served and my chicken kabob was still raw.

While in Caye Caulker, if you like chicken - you must give Syd's a visit. Their reputation for the best chicken on the island is well deserved.
