This was the best fried chicken we have ever eaten -- and we are from the southern U.S. We went on a Saturday at lunch. There were a few orders ahead of us so we waited 30 mins for white meat (dark was faster). It was well worth the wait. Highly recommend.

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
