You can get a decent burger at many restaurants in San Pedro, but only Legends Burger Bar, a half mile or so north of the bridge, specializes totally in beef (and chicken) patties (tel. 501/226-2113, Mon.–Sat. noon–9 p.m.). It’s worth the trip. The atmosphere is tropical frat-house, with live music till midnight on weekends. The menu is entertaining, with each burger dedicated to the owner’s various heroes.
The most Belizean is the “Sir Barry Burger,” a tribute to local legend Barry Bowen, a widely admired businessman who was tragically killed in a plane crash in 2010; it’s a beef patty topped with Belikin beer–battered shrimp, representing three of the commodities Bowen produced and sold.
