Nicaragua's Oldest and most prestigious Steak House; History was made at Los Ranchos and the quality is outstanding.

Los Ranchos used to be a favorite lunch destination for my wife and me. The meat, different cuts, was well seasoned, grilled and served with style. Our last 2 visits were a disappointment. The churrasco next to tasteless, the french fries served cold, the salad with fresh ingredients but poor dressing. Reputation is not enough to keep clients.

Los Ranchos will cost you a bit of money, but the best place in town to eat. Order the Carne Asada. You wont be disappointed.

Beef and food is consistently awesome - I am truly amazed at their quality and consistency. This is one of the oldest restaurant in Managua if not the oldest so there is some opportunities in terms of infrastructure ( setting and music selection).

The food is good. But its not unique or exciting or interesting. Its basically the same food you can get in a thousand other restaurants in the city. The food tastes better than average, but you pay higher than average prices for it as well. There isnt anything BAD i can say about the restaurant, but there isnt much good.... More

This is without a doubt a great classic. You might find your grandpa hanging out at this place but if you do, you know he knows great food. Where else would they take the time to actually cook refried beans on a clay "casuela". Most restaurants only serve them on these trays to make you think it's more authentic. It... More
