The prices are reasonable! The chicken was very greasy! Not even close to Pollo Campero that is found in most places in Central America! I literally gave my food to someone else because it was too greasy and extremely salty! Maybe I ate there on an off day but I was anything but impressed!

This is a fast food chicken chain like kfc in the states but much better. The Coke slaw is addicting after a few forkfuls. It has a hint of vinegar taste to it. The chicken is very juicy and a must try would be the cheese squares.

I work near this tip-top and eat here about one to two time per week. I've always found the staff to be attentive and ready to serve. My food has always come out hot, I normally have to wait for it to cool. The guard in the parking lot is courteous and will help you park your car in what... More

Tip Top restaurant is good as a general rule. The chicken is moist and flavorful. But the Ciudad Sandino restaurant served us up some sub-par food. The chicken was cold and the fries were cold. There was a "guard" in the parking lot who seemed to expect a tip for keeping an eye on our Hilux even though I don't... More

Cold chicken, they cook up to much and let it sit and get cold. The fries are grease soaked... cooked to cold. coke was flat. Will not go back and maybe not to any Tip Top.

Tip Top is really bad. Chicken taste awful, and god forbid you get one of their "grilled" chicken sandwiches -- tastes like rubber. With so many great, cheap options in Managua / Nicaragua, why would ever get this garbage fast-food?
