I have dined here several times for breakfast and lunch. The food is good and predictable. There is nothing here that blew me away, but I never had any complaints either. The breakfasts are solid and hearty, with decent sized potions. Lunches have been good. Again I haven't found anything on the menu that is truly amazing, but I have... More

I´ve been to this place several times with my wife, family and friends, and I have to say that this is the best place to try Nica Food. We live in Managua and each time we plan a trip to Masaya or Granada, we stop by mi viejo ranchito to have at least a quesillo (if we´re in a hurry).... More

Nicaragua is well known because its food, then you find restaurants that want to become franchises, this one did it. Therefore quality wise is not good, they want to encapsulates the cooking process in a recipe and when they have such a variety of food (yes they do) they can't control quality meaning the food doesn't taste good. I will... More

My husband and i visited this place because it was recommended. We ordered chancho con yucca. The yucca was old and hard as a rock. I then informed my waiter that perhaps additional salad could could make the yucca moist and softer. The waiter brought more salad. The chancho (pork) was dry and tough. When they brought us the bill... More

There are TWO "Mi Viejo Ranchitos" in Managua; the GEST of the two is located in "Pueblos Blanco" especially on Sunday, when they BBQ an entire hog and if arrive early enough, you get the best of the pork servings; generous portions, friendly staff, clean. There are other typical Nicaraguan dishes that will address every taste on foreign travelers.
