This place has the best Fried Chicken! It has changed hands but the food is still excellent & very reasonably priced

Not the best fried chicken I've ever had, but crispy, not overly dried out, flavorful and worth the calories.

We were in Belize for 10 days and I ate here 3 times because their fried chicken is just that good, plus it's super inexpensive. Definitely go here at least once!

Found Syd's, which is now called Pastorina's. Delicious fried chicken. Beats the Colonel Saunders anyday. Also ordered the Lobster Burger, and yet another win. Super service and food, local flavour and local prices. Great patio in the backyard. Wish I had another day to go back and try something else off their menu.

A lovely restaurant with a nice little garden in the back, with a great service and delicious food for a moderate price!

This was the best fried chicken we have ever eaten -- and we are from the southern U.S. We went on a Saturday at lunch. There were a few orders ahead of us so we waited 30 mins for white meat (dark was faster). It was well worth the wait. Highly recommend.

We came here on our first night in town (a Saturday) with our baby because we needed a place that accepted credit cards. Our timing was bad. Saturdays seem to be the busiest nights here due to their BBQ Chicken special. There were tons of locals hanging out waiting for take out orders. We ordered the fry chicken with the... More
