I live in Belize and travel the Western Highway often, we mainly stop here after my husband, a 2 time Olympian finishes his rides/races with a Masters Weekend Warrior club. The food at Cheers is consistently good and flavorful, customer service is good and the price is reasonable. The location is convenient as it is one of the very few... More

Great food and well needed on the deserted stretch between Belize City and Belmopan. Food is very affordable and tasty. Tucked right on the edge of the reserve we were treated to iguana sightings, dozens of birds and lizards to spare. They took credit cards and had nice washrooms to freshen up. Prices are in Belize and the breakfast was... More

There are roadside restaurants and then there is Cheers. I can barely fit at my desk right now after staying there overnight and having three unbelievable meals. The owners of Cheers are foodies and while the menu doesn't appear fancy, they somehow manage to elevate even the most standard meals. Let's start with omelettes. I eat a lot of them... More

Restaurant was suggested when I was here last time but didn't get a chance to stop by. This time I came twice already.

Cheers is an excellent choice for lunch after the Belize Zoo. The restaurant is big and the landscaping in the back area is beautiful to look out into while dining. They have a fun little area for kids to play, the bathrooms are clean and the staff are friendly. Cheers' menu has plenty of variety of food to choose from,... More

I loved this restaurant. We stopped here on the way to San Ignacio from the airport. I had a half chicken with rice and beans. Everything was fresh and delicious. Definitely worth stopping in.

As there are not many different options along the way this restaurant is almost a must if you want to use, restrooms, grab some lunch or just stop for coffee. Prices are average They have a decent menu

After traveling all day from North Carolina, this was a wonderful start to our 8 days in Belize adventure. This place was on the way to our lodging from the airport. The prices were good, the food was plentiful. I ordered the gringo tamale, and shared some nachos with the table. The nachos were just okay - but the tamale... More

Our guide took us here after zip lining. Lovely local food, nice breeze to kill the post zip line sweat, and takes credit cards!
