Fodor's Expert Review Riverside Tavern

$$ Belize City American Fodor's Choice

Owned and managed by the Bowen (of locally brewed Belikin-beer fame) family, Riverside Tavern is one of the city's most popular and agreeable restaurants, with dependably good food, friendly service, and safe parking. The signature hamburgers, which come in several sizes from 6 oz. to enormous, are arguably the best in Belize. Try one with the stacked onion rings. The Riverside has steak and prime rib dishes, from cattle from the Bowen farm at Gallon Jug. Sit inside in air-conditioned comfort, at tables set around a huge bar, or on the outside covered patio overlooking Haulover Creek. This is one of the few restaurants in Belize with a dress code—shorts aren't allowed at night (at least in theory). The fenced, guarded parking lot right in front of the restaurant makes it easy and safe to park for free.
