“Oil fat, ugly, never again.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2011

My Secret Daily or Legend over the bridge have far the better burger. The burger we got from wade was still bloody inside and there was at least 50% fat. This a real tourist trap and the Roadkill bar should not be involved in this anymore.

I am sorry your experience was not good for you. We take pride in using only fresh low fat ground beef from Belize. We have our meat ground special for us. I take all customer input very strongly and monitor the production of our product first hand. I am always available for comments and complaints as well. Thank you for your review.

“Good location, nice service, food could be better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2011

Wade the Gringo Burgers or 'The Roadkill Bar' is very well located, almost like a drive-thru right on the main street in San Pedro.

The 'famous' burgers... well.. we were somewhat disappointed and could not see what exactly is so famous about them. A regular bun, a piece of meat that hardly covers more than half the bun, salad, tomato, onions (?) and that's it. Ketchup from a industrial mini-pack for self-seasoning and non-crispy fries with it. I am sure that all ingredients were somewhat quality but alltogether there was nothing special about this stop.

Prices are ok.
The service was very friendly and it seems to be a place were (gringo) locals meet regularly.

We are modeled after American fast food. This is why we use American Ketchup packs.

“Great Burger Great Guy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2011

Just have to say these were some good burgers you can see that everthing is really fresh. The onion rings were by far the best I have ever tasted. Got a chance to talk to Wade the Gringo who is always willing to tell you a good story. We ate our burgers, drank panti rippas and enjoyed our afternoon. As someone mentioned in a previous post the burgers are only available Fri and Sat. but well worth it. Great value!

“Great spot for a burger!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2011

Only serving their burgers on Fridays and Saturdays, Wade the Gringo burgers at the Roadkill Bar were excellent and worth the wait for their rare appearance. Coupled with a $10BZ shot and beer - you can't go wrong. Burger was perfectly prepared with a good crust and excellent flavor. They may use McDonalds as their inspiration, but they definitely do the Golden Arches a step or two better. Bar is a nice friendly place by the side of the road - great place to watch the world go by on a weekend evening before heading off for whatever adventures you have planned next.

“This place has got it right”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2011

I never visit the Golden Arches, but Wade and his team have hit the spot with their Friday and Saturday burgers. Look, taste and presented just like the real thing. I'm going to live in San Pedro soon and will be at Road Kill often!
