Fodor's Review

Named for the open wood-fire cooking method, El Fogon serves authentic down-home Belizean cooking like chaya tamales, gibnut, and stew chicken, in a quaint thatch building with dirt floor. But this is no hole-in-the-wall secret gem. It embodies island-casual but with the niceness dial turned up: you sit at picnic tables, but the picnic tables have cloth runners. Food is prepared in cast-iron pots in a traditional fogon, a wood-burning stove. Though it's in town just two blocks north of the Tropic Air terminal at the airstrip, it's a little hard to find. Ask any local where it is.
