If you need a good burger fix in Belize, this will do. Plus great onion rings...service very friendly and cold Belize beer. And it is really well airconditioned which in Belize is a rarity!

Really enjoyed our evening on the patio. Service was great, incredibly friendly. Ceviche and burgers were excellent. Such a large serving of ceviche couldn't finish the burger. Thanks.

When I went there to eat, the food was great and the waiter was very courteous. I can't complain and I would recommend that people go try their food. I will definitely go again to eat.

We saw a couple of NFL games showing on the screens when we were there. I would not liken this to a sports bar in the USA however.
