We came here on our first night in town (a Saturday) with our baby because we needed a place that accepted credit cards. Our timing was bad. Saturdays seem to be the busiest nights here due to their BBQ Chicken special. There were tons of locals hanging out waiting for take out orders. We ordered the fry chicken with the... More

Went to Syd's for lunch and ordered the "fry chicken". It was delicious. Go to Syd's for the chicken. You won't be dissapointed.

We ordered and ended up waiting at least 45 minutes for our meal. The food was good but the wait was so frustrating.

When the food is gone... you get what is left over.... We had grilled fish, which was seasoned well... Beans and rice were cold and dry... Didn't understand how they could run out of burgers?!? Waitress was nice

Had fried chicken twice and the stewed chicken once. Food was a good value for the money and restaurant has an outdoor seating area. At night it is cooler to sit outside than inside.

After a full day of travelling, my husband and I were exhausted and starving. Our cabana manager recommended Syd's. We both ordered the fired chicken with rice and beans, and coleslaw. Amazing, and so filling!

We had just arrived in Caye Caulker and hadn't eaten a real meal all day. After reading reviews, I knew we had to have the fried chicken. The only bummer was they were out of a lot of things. No rice and beans of any sort and many other things. No worries because we were there to try the fried... More

My brother and I ate at Syd's. I had the "fry" chicken and my brother had the chicken fajitas. I definitely recommend the fried chicken but I do NOT recommend the fajitas. They tasted like they were marinated in soy sauce which made it seem more like Chinese food than Mexican. The chips and salsa were not great. Salsa had... More

The other reviews are not kidding. $9 for a large helping of fried chicken and cole slaw. It was delicious! My travel companion had a chicken burrito which he says was also very good and at $3, a great value. Service was a little on the surly side but not rude. Worth it for the food though.
