Don't pass by this semi-whole in the wall bar.
Look for the Belcan sign hanging out front.

They have the best fried chicken!
So yummy!

A fried chicken meal includes half a chicken (that's the island typical 'chicken' order size), coleslaw and your choice of fries, beans & rice or stewed beans & rice. You'll also get a bit of tasty bbq sauce to dip your chicken in.
$9.00bze ($4.50usd)

Takeout or Eat in. The little patio in the back is gorgeous and lush. Worth eating in.

Tip: Be prepared to wait. They fry it fresh to order, so it takes about 20min to make. No flash frying here!

Cute little bar/restaurant on middle street with beautiful back yard with about 5 -6 tables to dine at also. Was very cool and comfortable there in middle of day lunch with some of the best fried chicken anywhere and the best rice with beans(almost soup), phenominal!

Eight years ago on our first visit to Caye Caulker, we ate at Syd's several times and we were excited to see that it has prospered over the years since our first visit without losing the ability to serve great food. Great rice and beans and stewed chicken and now they seem famous island wide for having the best fried chicken on the island - and we agree. Great service whether eating in or for take out.

It was refreshing to find a place on Caye Caulker that isn't entirely targeted towards US and Canadian tourists. Syd's has good Belizean food at local prices. It's the most authentic place we ate at on the island, and is recommended for those seeking just that.

We stopped in at Syd's for a midday snack. We weren't after a big meal and they suggested chicken fingers. They were delightful. We had them and rum punch! YEAH! It was good. The service is laid back Caye style. We sat outside and enjoyed talking with some near expats and watching the people go by. Some of the local workers were seated inside cheering on the waitress and that raised the fun level. Syd's is clean and well run with a small bar at the front. Of course there is always Belkin but try the rum punch. We parked at the front gate and with 3 steps we were in. Try it, you'll like it.
