Excellent Food and Service

Have been there at least 5 times and the steaks and sides are absolutely some of the best you will find anywhere, with top notch service to go with it. Sangria is good as well.

I'm a steak lover and the steak they have is awesome. Its the best restaurant in Managua. You won't go wrong eating here. The only problem we had was driving here but that a problem all over Managua.

If you're craving a good cut of meat, this is the place. After so many years in business they still have it. And the customer service is very good also. Waiters are always checking up on your table for any additional items you should need while you dine there.

Los Ranchos is a Nicaraguan institution - it's one of the few restaurants to have survived the revolution and ensuing civil war. I have eaten here hundreds of times in my life, and the steak is always perfect. I'm astonished at this restaurant's consistency - I have never had a bad meal, and only rarely had sub-par service. The atmosphere... More

When you ask for steaks in Managua you will hear 2 or 3 names, and Los Ranchos is one of them. The service (waitress) is great. Basically a guy is there to answer any question you migth have. The food was great. A Cazuelita, a Churrasco and a Jalapeño.

I remember people saying this is the best steak house in town, but it wasn't my impression, food was ok, service was poor and the place meeds to be restored. I will give a second chance in a couple of years.

Hadn't been to Los Ranchos for some time so I decided to go for some steak. It was a disappointment. Over the years the quality of the food has declined tremendously. The lettuce in the salad did not appear fresh, the onions were old and the tomato was overripe. The shrimp in the shrimp cocktail were over cooked and frozen.... More

One of the oldest restaurant in Nic. Not worth the prizes for what you get. I had a better Churrasco in the Pharaoh Casino, km. 5, Carretera Masaya, better priced and much tastier. You don't have to play in the casino, just go to the upper level where the restaurants is at. Hamburgers and Platano Con Queso are delish as... More
