After a full day of travelling, my husband and I were exhausted and starving. Our cabana manager recommended Syd's. We both ordered the fired chicken with rice and beans, and coleslaw. Amazing, and so filling!

We had just arrived in Caye Caulker and hadn't eaten a real meal all day. After reading reviews, I knew we had to have the fried chicken. The only bummer was they were out of a lot of things. No rice and beans of any sort and many other things. No worries because we were there to try the fried... More

My brother and I ate at Syd's. I had the "fry" chicken and my brother had the chicken fajitas. I definitely recommend the fried chicken but I do NOT recommend the fajitas. They tasted like they were marinated in soy sauce which made it seem more like Chinese food than Mexican. The chips and salsa were not great. Salsa had... More

The other reviews are not kidding. $9 for a large helping of fried chicken and cole slaw. It was delicious! My travel companion had a chicken burrito which he says was also very good and at $3, a great value. Service was a little on the surly side but not rude. Worth it for the food though.

It's a little off the beaten path but well worth the walk. They have a nice garden in the back and we had some cheap rum drinks while we waited on our fried chicken. It was amazing! Growing up in the south I have pretty high expectations and Syd's delivered. You get a big piece of chicken, fries, and Cole... More

The food is always outstanding and very reasonably priced. The best fried chicken in Belize. Very diverse menu highlighting local catch. Very friendly staff. Love this place. I am a regular anytime I am on Caye Caulker.

We ate at Syd's a couple of times while in C.C. The outside dining area is very picturesque, and the food is tasty. I had fried fish (very good, but it was a rather small fish) and fajitas (OK). Service was the slowest that we experienced in C.C.

Syds has good food at very reasonable prices. Their Tuesday chicken special is great and has generous portions. Service is very prompt and friendly.

Best fried chicken on the island. Great lunch special $9 BZ for chicken and 2 sides. A bit slow but the wait is worth it.

We were referred to Syd's by our snorkeling guides at The Original Spearfishing Shack, and were not disappointed. We had to pre-order lunch about an hour in advance because they sell out, but it was definitely worth it! Great tasting and hefty serving sizes. At $9 BZ, it was the best meal we had for that price. Highly Recommend Syd's... More
