Providenciales doesn’t have any of the globally-famous fast food chain restaurants, yet there are several options for a quick takeaway meal.
In the Downtown region of Providenciales, there are many small take out establishments, serving food ranging from fried chicken and fish, to local and Caribbean flavours such as conch fritters, soups and stews, and fried plantains. One of the best known fast food places on Providenciales is Sweet T’s, which cooks a simplified menu of fried chicken wings and French fries at a price that can’t be beat.
Once unheard of in the Turks and Caicos, delivery is now offered at some Grace Bay eateries. The service typically isn’t offered to some of the more remote residential and villa communities on Providenciales such as Chalk Sound, Turtle Tail and Silly Creek, yet it’s a convenient option for those staying in the Grace Bay region.
Pizza varies greatly on Providenciales. There are more restaurants serving this international favourite now than ever.
Pizza Pizza, which has locations in Grace Bay and on Leeward Highway, are popular and long-established restaurants that offer great pizza.
Several of the top Italian restaurants serve gourmet pizza now. Bella Luna in Grace Bay offers a dedicated pizza garden and delicious thin-crust pies that may be garnished with a wide selection of fresh speciality toppings.
Providenciales once had a Kentucky Fried Chicken! In the mid-1990s, a proper KFC restaurant, complete with a drive-through, opened its doors in the Downtown region of Providenciales. However, disagreements between the local franchise and corporate over ingredient sources and unapproved menu items (fried conch!) put an end to the experiment.
