Named after the Garifuna, an indigenous group living along the Caribbean coast in Belize and elsewhere in Central America, this spot on the Southwest Side features a mix of Caribbean, Latin and indigenous dishes. Try the red snapper, king fish or oxtail dinners and popular conch soup for a bit of Garifuna flavor. Belizean favorites include panades (fried maize shells with beans or fish), garnaches (fried tortillas topped with beans, cheese and a salt-and-vinegar sauce) and tamales. There's a full bar as well as a banquet hall that can accommodate private parties of up to 100, and Belizean artists and musicians are often showcased in the dining room.
