Fodor's Expert Review Wendy's

$$ Placencia Village Latin American

No, not that Wendy's. This Wendy's is a long-established restaurant operated by Wendy Lemus that seems to have caught a second wind. It's open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner seven days a week, and always seems to deliver good, no-frills food at reasonable prices. The Belizean breakfast of fry jack (the local version of beignets without the sugar), bacon, eggs, and refried beans is nearly perfect. The grilled fish is fresh and delicious, and at lunch there are many dishes to choose from on the lengthy menu, including Creole items like cow-foot soup or Mestizo soups like escabeche or chirmole with fresh flour tortillas. On Monday, there's usually gibnut (a ground-dwelling, herbivorous rodent that is commonly hunted for food in Belize). You can dine inside or outside on the veranda, and both are pleasant.
