The chicken here is delicious, comes with three sides, and did I mention delicious? We also had a chicken torta, which is a kind of pulled-chicken burger. REALLY good. Very flavorful, budget-friendly, and laid back place. Nice staff.

Fried chicken here is above and beyond, and if you like it hot...be sure to splash on Marie Sharp's hot sauce. Was nice to have familiar food!

We were advised to try Syd's by the owner of the cabana we were staying in. I ate there twice and found the stew chicken with beans and rice to be exceedingly tasty and filling. My wife had the fried chicken and the shrimps and enjoyed them both. The quality, quantity and price are all very good. The two ladies... More

This is a must go to try the fried chicken! Goes perfectly with a Belkin beer! Can even get this to go to enjoy beachside.

We have been going to Caye Caulker for quite a while and always loved Syd's, but the last two times we were there we were very disappointed. It was very hard to get service and they had hardly anything listed on their menu.

The Fry chicken and sides were a tasty treat along with 2 rum punch drinks for less than $10 but the best part was learning that Romeo, their dog, was on the balcony above our outside table watching us enjoy. He was so cute we had to give him a taste!

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.
