Los Ranchos is the oldest and more traditional steakhouse in town. Nevertheless the quality and taste of their beef and customer service is superb. Try as an appetizer the frijolitos with fried chunks of cheese and green platanitos and you will be in love with the place. And Churrasco with creamy jalapeño sauce on the side is a must.

Had two meals here: El Presidente steak and filet mignon. Each was prepared as specified. The portions are large with a salad, plenty of rice, carrots, asparagus, potatoes, fried plantains, garlic bread, and your meat selection. Entrees range in price from 12-25 USD. If you don't have the local currency, the waiter will have them refigure your check with the... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by several people. It is an old establishment and the steaks are supposed to be the best in Managua. The steak was not exactly what I had in mind but it was tasty. The dinner as a whole was good and the wine list extensive. We enjoyed dinner at Los Ranchos.

Los Ranchos is one of the best restaurants in Nicaragua, Everything is good but specially the Churrasco. If you want to eat steaks go to Los Ranchos.

We were tired of Gallo pinto after 2 weeks in Nicaragua and Costa Rica and we saw the good reviews of this place so we decided to give it a try. It is quite expensive for what you get. The steak was good, not certainly the best I have had. The sides were fine nothing special. But the price really... More

We have eaten at Los Ranchos quite a few times, it is our favorite restaurant in Nicaragua. The steaks (churrascos) are cooked absolutely perfect and their service is very good. They are very attentive to the customers. If you are in Nicaragua for a few days, make sure not to miss this place.

We went there based on Trip advisor reviews which makes me wonder who is feeding into them as the food, if indeed it is rated one of the top 10 restaurants in Managua, it is underwhelming. The chirusco which everyone raved about was very average, the sides were second rate french fries and crispy plantains. Because we only had a... More

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.
