“Incredible Nicaraguan food!”
Review of Asados Juanita

Asados Juanita
Restaurant details
Reviewed 3 January 2018

The meal was delicious - among the best we had in all of Nicaragua. The family run establishment has a grill in front of a small room for dining. They also serve cold beer. The menu is very simple - only grilled meat, chicken or pork. The plantain chips are lightly fried to perfection and delightfully slim. The gallo pinto (red beans & rice) is excellent. The portions are big. The food was served pretty quickly even on a very busy night. Don't miss this restaurant in SJDS!

This place is a diamond find, it's a basic place with a simple set up but the formula works. Usually there is a choice of two meats, grilled to perfection on a BBQ on the street outside then served with Gallo pinto, plantain chips and fresh shredded cabbages. It's great value at less than $12 for two huge plates and four beers. The fact that locals eat here is a testament to the caliber of the cooking and proves there is no need to pay through the nose at the beach side restaurants.

Now this is place to eat. Big portions, very inexpensive and delicious. We loved everything about the authentic outdoor BBQ here. They may be cooking on the street and it looks sketchy but we ate there twice and had great meals both times. Beats paying a fortune for the meals on the beach.

Beef, pork or chicken is the choice. Comes with rice and beans, fried bananas and a salad. The meats are perfectly barbecued and the smell fill up to whole of SJDS's centre. Great spot for an authentic dinner
