THE traditional Nicaraguan steakhouse. Frijolitos fritos amazing! & Churrasco is the go-to entree. w/chimichurri and I also ask for a side of salsa jalapeña to switch it up.

It is said to be one of the best meat restaurants. Its good but not awesome. The plates are big. The ambience is not that nice, however is always very crowded.

After hearing about this restaurant many times, we finally tried it on this trip. I was very disappointed with the quality of the meat served. It was not up to par with the ratings it has received. Come to find out later that the higher quality meat in Nicaragua is used for export.

Food was really good, esp. the grilled steak, which they are known for. Bread/salad were only so-so. Very attentive waiters. We'd go back for a special occasion.

Los Ranchos, considered by many the best steakhouse in Managua. But there’s more to this place. For decades Nicaragua’s decision and dealmakers could be met at Los Ranchos. From the Somozas to the Sandinistas, Los Ranchos remained a popular eatery, always at the ready with the best of local food, always providing the right atmosphere, and which some days included...
