The good reviews and convenient location encouraged me to try Lucy's. Unfortunately, I didn't share the same experience as many of the other reviewers. I found the worker to be rude. She impatiently asked me what I wanted from the kitchen window; be mindful there was no menu or prices listed... On a whim, I said 'chicken?' I guess this... More

We stopped at Lucy's after the Saturday Market for lunch. and were not disappointed. I think she had some of the best local food we had there. I had the rice and beans with stewed chicken and it was amazing. Lucy is super friendly and her food is delicious and super cheap. My husband's and Mine cost $8 US total.... More

The ladies who work here are super nice. The food is tasty and homemade. I had a chicken burrito with vegetables that was really good. Belize style place,open air, hole in the wall. We would go back.

Not my favorite place in San Ignacio, but food is okay.. Best food on menu I must say is the beef burrito. Natural Juices are great!

My friend and I just got back from spending a week in the area. We ate at Lucy's several times. There food is great, and really reasonably priced. Also, Lucy and Navia are really nice. Make sure to try their juices. Marshmellon juice is the best!

My friend and I tried this place out for lunch on our 2nd day in San Ignacio and then went back for lunch every day for the rest of our trip - we loved it! The women who run it were incredibly helpful and friendly (and even got us a ride to Belmopan so we didn't have to take the... More

When I travel I always like to try a few places that are frequented by locals rather than tourists and Lucy's was one of them. The place is small and with limited seating ( more of a "to-go" kind of place) however the food was some of the best I had in Belize during a week long vacation. The service... More

This little hole in the wall is a great local place to get a snack. The waitress was very friendly and helpful. I got a combo platter of salbutes and panades. One was stuffed with (strange tasting) fish and the other with excellent chicken. I liked the topping of "slaw" and veggies. However, it was all deep fried, but still... More

Lucy makes these great burritos with untypical ingredients that were real tasty. The place may look kind of sketchy to someone from the States, but don't let that fool you. When I asked if one burrito would be enough when I ordered, she rolled her eyes and chucked - it was huge. Careful with the hot sauce, it will blow... More

Lucy's is a road side stand just to the right of the market in San Ignacio. Using my rule of "go to where the line of locals is longest" we gave it a try. Boy, was it great. Yes it's not something you'd find in America, but it's absolutely fantastic local food. Hot, not so fast because they make it when you order, and delicious. We went back for more during our stay! PS: I've got a couple good pics of Lucy's with geotag. You are not going to be able to contact them: no phone, no website. They're just a little more than a street cart. Please list them, it was great food!
