“rice and beans or beans and rice?”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

Hode's is a fun outdoor/indoor restaurant on the way back from the ruins. We had chicken and red beans and rice, mixed together and it was delicious. We learned that the dish is most popular in Belize.
Beans can be served separate from the rice or together (which is much better) Hode's has been around a long time.

“Good food, nice setting”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

We were there when there were no cruise ship buses and enjoyed a quiet lunch near the orange grove. Best rice and beans I have ever had.

“Great lunch experience”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

As part of our tour to Xunantunich, we were treated to a Belizian style lunch of roasted chicken, rice with beans, grilled plantains and drinks at Hode's Place. As part of our meal we also tried a couple of Belizian beers ($2 each) which were quite good and sampled all of the famous hot sauce made with habanero peppers. Not quite hot enough for this Texas boy though. The covered outdoor style dining was a great relief from being in the sun most of the day, though it wasn't terribly hot that day, just humid and sunny. Service and the food were both excellent. After lunch we had some time to walk around the garden area, shop for gifts at the booths setup outside the restaurant, and purchase bottles of the famous habanero hot sauce, $2 each. The setup for the restaurant was quite simple, rustic, but still very nice. The whole place was very neat and clean. Truly great food, tasty, spicy, roasted chicken was just perfectly cooked. Rice with beans were plentiful and the grilled plantains were fabulous. Made me want to grill some of my own when I got back home to see if I could match the flavor. Overall we were very happy with the experience.

“Family Restaurant with a Orange Grove run through it.”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

Another one of my favorite family run San Ignacio Restaurants...with a orange grove run through it. Long time restaurant that is really family friendly. Children have their game room, play ground, and ice cream stand. Older children have food and drink...and a lil Casino. Did I mention the orange grove...they have. A place where locals and tourist co-exists.

“GREAT FOOD”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Hodes Restaurant in San Ignacio is one of the best when it come to great food . We made a quick stop there and the food was great. You can either chose to eat inside the restaurant, or chose to eat outside like a patio area. We opted for the patio area as it was quite warm that day. The food is great and the servers there look after you. Thanks Kenneth great service. Defintely recommend eating there while you are in San Ignacio
