I went to try the fry chicken as a cheap lunch and enjoyed it but it didn't blow me away, and my fried chicken standards are quite low i.e KFC... It is a great option for a cheap lunch though and plenty of other stuff on the menu.

I confess, I only went because of the reviews about fried chicken. I love fried chicken; it's definitely a guilty pleasure. I'm a true southern woman, so it's hard to impress me with fried chicken. I will say the chicken was really good; however, not anything I can't get from any relatives' kitchen in GA. The service was super slow,... More

This place has history and family ties that go way back on the island. We didn't know that when we made this our first meal stop of the day. 2 of us had the best fried chicken on the island while the other had a delicious breakfast burrito- all for a nominal cost. We left full and satisfied. Fernando (family... More

It is another restaurant off the beaten path and came highly recommended for its "Fry Chicken". The prices were amazing and it does have a good local vibe, but the food left something to be desired. It felt like something you would get at KFC, as opposed to having local flavors or spices.

We headed to Syds as we didn't want traditional Thanksgiving dinner that was being offered elsewhere on the island. We had really good grilled fish & fried shrimp accompanied by a few beers for less than BZ$50. Would recommend.

As everyone else has mentioned, the fry chicken was delicious and probably one of the best bargains on Caye Caulker, as you get a lot of food for $9 BZ. The rest of the food we had there was nothing special, so just stick to the fry chicken and you will not be disappointed.

My husband and I really enjoyed the more local vibe of this restaurant. We visited twice during our week stay in CC.. Had the chicken (outstanding) and also the fish stick appetizer and conch dinner. All meal were very good and great price! Shout out to Nye! Tell Kevin at Iguana Reef we said hello-Mark and Sheila

Only restaurant we visited more than once on Caye Caulker. It was that good! Seriously the best fried chicken we've ever had and so cheap! The sides were awesome too, especially the pasta salad. A must visit!!

If you go to Syds you must try the fried chicken! You get the choice of two sides such as beans, rice, coleslaw, fries etc. Went here a few times during my time on the island and it was around 9 belizean dollars for the meal (its a big plate of food). I believe you can also call in your... More

A good prices for what you get. I would recommend the Syd's chicken was very good and comes with beans/rice and coleslaw which my boyfriend loved.
