Los Ranchos is a traditional family restaurant specialized in churrasco. You need to try the beans as appetizer. The quality of te food is very good after 50 years!

I've had great steak here but also excellent seafood. Always crowded. Elite politicians, businessmen and others come to entertain and be entertained. So popular they have a branch in Miani for the ex-pat community.

Although Managua is kind of a small and few things to see or eat, Los Ranchos is a MUST! Never had better frijoles than this place! Make sure the waiters give you there meat recommendation. Enjoy a great Nica style bbq!

This is a classic Nicaraguan restaurant for meat-lovers, in business since the 1960s and always representing a fantastic quality. The menu is rather comprehensive - but the real attraction is the meat, no doubt about it; always grilled to perfection and according to your own preference. My long-standing favourite is the churrasco, juicy and tasty and just so tender. Staff... More

If you come to Nicaragua and fancy a proper steak, this is a must! Try their famous Churrasco for a lean full flavored plate, and if you are really hungry order a side of refried beans along with a 7-year Flor de Caña Rum. Just writing this is making me salivate for my next visit, and I can assure you... More

If you're looking for a juicy churrasco prepared in the traditional Nicaraguan style, you must check out Los Ranchos. The servers, trained classically to attend to your every whim, are impeccable. My parents were engaged here in the mid 70's and I've now visited atleast once over the last three decades in their honor. This last time, we visited with... More

No matter how many years go by, this is still, by far, the best churrasco in Nicaragua! I have been coming to this place since I was a kid, it´s still one of my favorite restaurants in Managua, you just feel at home. The taste of the meats are amazing and always accompanied by fries and rice and chimichurri! It... More
