Orlando is the best! His pride and smile come through in his amazing food. We enjoyed lunch so much we cam back a second day and he remembered our names! I highly recommend the stewed chicken with rice and beans - it has amazing Belizean...flavor (not spicy just flavorful)!!More

Stopped by for lunch since this place was so highly recommended on Trip Advisor users. Once again the users didn’t disappoint. The wife had the quesadilla and I had the shrimp tacos. Both meals were great and extremely flavorful. And the amount of food you...get for your money is well worth it also. This was our first lunch on the island, on a short trip. Hopefully we will make it back, but there are many restaurants we want to try. If you are in the area stop here to eat. Rumor has it breakfast is even better.More

While the food was good we had an issue with the owner telling us my daughter was able to eat something even though my daughter was allergic to it. (His wife corrected him after giving my daughter a taste). Fortunately my daughter didn’t get very...sick but they did not understand how serious an allergy attack can be especially considering we are on an island with limited health care. Hopefully they will learn from this experience.More

We were repeat customers during our 5 day stay, we ate breakfast there 3 days would have been 4 but they are closed on Sunday. Chatting with Mr. Orlando while your fresh breakfast burritos are being made is a great way to start the day....He is super friendly and the food is awesome. It’s a great value. * cash only Belize or US. Would give more stars if they let me. Casey (Sunshine Band) Haylie (Comet)More

I lived in San Pedro Belize for 4 years, and Taco Shack was always one of my goto places for breakfast. The food is simple, but very good. Orlando, the owner will most likely be the one taking your order, and is always friendly and...helpful. Ask him to see his collection of currency from around the world... he love to show it, and talk to anyone and learn about their home.More

This place was so good we went twice. The first time was breakfast. Orlando accommodated my gluten free husband and made the experience fun for our son. He showed us an album he keeps of money from all around the world. When we visited again...for lunch later in the week he remembered it was my son's birthday and gave him some coins from his collection. Food was great!More

Wow, I wish I loved (and was as good at) my day job as Orlando is his! The charming proprietors of this place clearly know their way around a kitchen and provided what was one of the best meals we’ve had here so far. Excellent...chicken stew and pork tacos are very much worth a visit and I cannot say enough about the hospitality. Thank you, Orlando!!More

This was such a great lunch. We loved the stewed chicken, beans & rice, pico and fried plantain! We also really enjoyed our chat with Orlando! I had phoned ahead to ask if they were open, which he confirmed, and i said we’d be there...in about 10 minutes. As we drove by, we missed his building so he got on his bike and followed us down the road a ways, he caught up with us, and told us where his location is. He also provided us with an overview of the Mahogany Bay resort area. Orlando is a class guy and his cooks are the best. Highly recommend!!More

The Taco Shack became a regular spot for our weeklong vacation. Orlando and his crew made sure that we were not only fed delicious food but that we knew all the best places to visit while in Belize. While the breakfast burritos were top of...the line, the fish tacos were also delicious. I hope to come back, again, not just for the food but the friendship. Thank you, Orlando!More

Orlando & his wife have created something special for the guests of Mahogany Bay. Food is top notch, extremely fresh & out of this world delicious. Wife had the shrimp and I had the Real Deal.

First off, the customer service was really good. The owner was so nice and really friendly to talk to. Between the two times I came here I ordered: a beef quesadilla, ceviche, fried plantains, and a breakfast burrito. Everything tasted delicious.

The absolute best! This is a gray place for breakfast and lunch in the mahogany bay property. The offer many of the same foods that are in the “main house” but at half the price and twice the flavor. The owner has a great knowledge...of his county and his happy to give a oral history. This was by far my favorite place to have breakfast and a stuffed fry jack! My suggestion have a fry jack and watermelon juice to start your day $8 USMore
