Lazy Croc BBQ

Fodor's Review

You'll smell the smoky aroma of barbecue well before you enter this popular spot about 1½ mi (2½ km) north of the bridge. As befits a barbecue joint, the menu is short and sweet—pulled pork, barbecue chicken, ribs, Buffalo wings, chili, and a few other items, with sides of coleslaw, french fries, barbecue beans, fried okra, fried pickles, and macaroni and cheese. Barbecue platters with garlic toast and two sides are around BZ$16 to $30. Lazy Croc has very limited hours: it is only open Thursday–Sunday 11 am–3 pm. Forget plastic—this is cash only. And, yes, there are real crocs in the lagoon near (and even under) the restaurant, but don't give them leftovers—feeding wild crocodiles is illegal. Go by golf cart, cab (BZ$35 one-way from town), or water taxi (get off at Grand Caribe).
