Muy bueno, very good steaks. The chicken is grilled and is a super big portion. The staff has been there since the begining of times. Since to me like they are tired and some times they do not give you friendly service.

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!
