Elvia Staines has come a long way since she started slinging burgers out of her home in 1974. With the help of daughter Jennie, this Ambergris native now runs one of the island's most popular restaurants: a screened-in, sandy-floored outpost with a tree growing right through the thatched roof. The dishes are local, the ingredients fresh, and the tastes tremendous. Stop by on a Friday night for the famed Mayan buffet. Aside from winning raves, dishes such as chicken mole and toro pinto (boiled corn bread with beans inside) reflect Staines's effort to keep Mayan traditions alive.

Open Mondays through Saturdays 11 am to 2 pm and 5:30 to 10 pm.
