I ordered sides as a carryout for a party. The rice and beans and coleslaw were quite good. El Fogon accommodated our request for larger portions. No food was left.😆😆😆

Look no farther for a classic Belizean dish. Everything on the menu was delicious. Returned 3 times on seperate nights to try a meal. The staff also gave us great recommendations as to what to do in town, they were friendly and courteous.
