Tripadvisor reviews were right. This is undoubtedly the best choice to have the best Quesillos ever in Managua. They are at a great location, it is neat, has a great atmosphere, staff is very friendly, noisy and has an excellent food.

Quesillos here are ok, they made it bigger so it doesn't look authentic and they used the size, as a justification to charge you way way too much for it, they want to serve one huge quesillo and make it a whole meal, which is not what this dish is about it. I would say this is the place where... More

Normally, i wouldnt like a restaurant with no variety.....but more than likely if you go to a quesillo shop, you are probably going for one specific food.......quesillos. And El Pipe do quesillos well. Tasty, decently priced. hot and fresh. Right on the highway. would definitely recommend.

The tortillas are made fresh to order and are served warm with quality cheese and cream. It doesn't get better than this as far as quesillos in Nicaragua

My girlfriend is Nica and she has really gotten me into the quesillo vibe over the past few years. We've tried them pretty much everywhere and we agree that this is the best. The key is to not order so big that you gross yourself out. It's almost better to walk away wanting more which is challenging because these really... More

So, this is a rustic place, with HUGE portions. But really authentic! it was delicious but we didn't even eat 1/4 of the super special. I would recommend sharing between 1-3 people, and really go all-in with the superspecial

I live in Ticuantepe and can hardly believe my good luck to have Quesillos El Pipe move into town. I have been several times now and always pleased with the service, food, and atmosphere. I met Don Pipe on my last visit and had a nice conversation with him as he was making sure that his plants and landscaping were... More
