Great prices and great food, the fried chicken dinner alone was worth a repeat visit. Nice local feel away from the touristy restaurants

This restaurant served me the best fried chicken I have ever had! It was crispy and juicy and the sides were awesome! I ate in the back garden and was pleasantly surprised by the quality and the value. I highly recommend giving them a try.

No matter how many times we visit Caye Caulker, we must visit Syd's. The fried chicken is the best...hands down...on this island. The same young lady has waited on us for the past seven years and she is still working hard to please the customers! The food is outstanding and the service is great! I suggest a visit to Syd's...

Ate here on our first night on caulker. We both had fried chicken, coleslaw and fries. Good sized portions and great value. We sat in the back courtyard which was pleasant. Would happily come again.

If you are craving fried chicken, then you have to go to Syd's. Sit in the courtyard to have the best experience; it's beautiful.

Syd's was one of my favorites. The Fry Chicken and the Stewed Chicken with beans & rice was delish. We went several times.. Even to get chicken burritos on the way to the airport. Super cheap and super super good!!

We traveled with ten people in July. Everyone who had the fried chicken said it was hands down the best they had ever eaten. I had the stewed chicken snd rice and beans. The best of any other place we tried. Her prices are so low, we went back a few times. You need to try this little gem!

Seriously need to stop in at Syds while on the Caye for a plate of the ridiculously famous fried chicken. Highly recommended by everyone on the island. We weren't served ridiculously fast, but the island motto is "Go Slow", and the food is well worth the wait. The ambiance is very cool as well.

Syd's is a small restaurant a block off the Main Street. The fried chicken is moist, has delicious batter, served with 2 sides. I loved the mashed potatoes and cole slaw. Fast, friendly service and local atmosphere. Lunch for 3 including a pop or water each was under $20 U.S. Highly recommended.

I know it is fried chicken, but the menu shows it as fry chicken. Needless to say, the chicken is some of the best you will ever taste.
