great, classic hunks of meat

Old-fashioned (but not outmoded) steak house, where beef is the main attraction. A massive, ancient open pit grill guarantees juicy chunks of meat with perfect pink centers.

The churrasco is cooked to perfection. The refried beans are a must have with plantain and fried cheese.

Everytime we come is better, the best meat at Managua, with Ceviche as started, the service is great, but the meat is just the best, nice place and very recommended. It is not cheap but it worth.

If you are looking for a great churrasco, dont hesitate to go to Los Ranchos. Also, the sangrias are the best. Good choice for price and quality.

Los Ranchos is one of my favorite restaurants in Managua, it has a lot of tradition here, service is the best, the waitress is always paying attention to you, when you order meat it comes with rice or fried plantain and you can keep requesting for refill of these two complements. The meat is of the highest quality it almost... More

By far one of the best churrascos in the Americas. Always cooked to perfection with a great Chimichurri sauce. My favorite restaurant in Managua.

Los Ranchos has been there "forever" and after a visit, you will know why. Service is great, food, especially the meat, is excellent and after visiting you will be able to say that you had lunch at an iconic Managua restaurant

Someone told us about this place and said it was amazing.......I would definitely agree!! Food and service was unbelievable good!! I will eat here again for sure. The steak and the fish are equally good.....I am a steak person but I think i liked the fish even better. Go and try this out!!! You will be happy that you did!!
