During a recent visit to Ambergris Caye we stayed about 2 1/2 miles north of San Pedro, and rather than heading into town we dined at restaurants that we could walk to. Luckily for us, Lazy Croc BBQ was only a short walk away. We so enjoyed our lunch one day (pulled pork sandwich and a platter with pulled pork and ribs) that we returned another day to try what turned out to be really outstanding chicken (smoked, seasoned, and then fried--and it's yummy!). Since Lazy Croc is now open 'til 7:00, we advised fellow guests where we were staying that they should pick up meals and bring them back for dinner. Whatever sides you pick to go with your main course, be sure to include the jalapeno mac and cheese. For those staying in or closer to San Pedro, we think you'll find it worth the trip to have a meal (or two) here.

We stopped in early evening for dinner. We figured out how to order. That is usually kind of fun, but this kind of wasn't. We watched the boat pulled through the pond. I cannot believe that is fun for the crocodiles or the guests. I watched the couple on the float with the guy pulling the barge a few feet from them and it seemed very odd. The BBQ was fine. I love BBQ but really if you are on the island for vacation, have something more local.

Recently when we last visited San Pedro we were looking for something a little more familiar and cozy and we discovered The lazy croc! What a wonderful experience.... the owner is hospitable and generous. He makes you feel like he has known you for many years. We felt right at home! The fried chicken is delicious and the pulled pork is outstanding. The serving sizes are generous and the ambience is like a tropical diner/ hidden grotto.
Amazing concept!
Amazing food!
Will definitely visit again!
Yum!

We were back visiting San Pedro for another visit. Lazy Croc highly recommended by our resort.
We were seeking real authentic food with a spicy flare. We got this and more. Having all received more than generous portions, the food quality was outstanding. We have the BBQ pork which to date remains the best we've ever had. Amazing setting and very good personalized service. Great spot for photos and a beautiful spot to dine. The crocs swimming next to the rest. was a sight to see.
Thanks for a great experience.

Ate lunch here one day and really enjoyed it. The service was a little slow, but the food was delicious, drinks were strong and atmosphere was relaxing and fun. Another place visitors should try.
