A trip to Nicaragua without going to Los Ranchos is like going to New York and not having a hot dog, pizza or a falafel. The best meat (steak) for your money (value). Awesome service, great ambiance. You will love it!

Los ranchos have been in Nicaragua for more than 50 years. It is a great food, specially the "CHURRASCO". First time you go, you must have the churrasco, just decide if you want 6, 8, 12 or 16 ounces.. It's the best food around..

Opened since 1988, good variety to choose from. Excellent wine selection. Atmosphere is festive with friendly staff. Your choice sitting out on the patio or inside.

If you want to enjoy a nice, extremely tender, tasty and juicy steak, prepared to perfection you have to come to Los Ranchos. From my perspective prices are reasonable versus what you receive although this place might be expensive for locals. Oh, in Nicaragua you...can have the best white rice (plain and simple) of your life!More

This is still by far the best churrasco in town, the fish à la meunière is amazing, the cazuela de frijoles is unique, they cook like they did 50 years ago and it is still amazing. The waiters are very polite, this is one of...the places a foreigner must visit when he/she comes to Nicaragua. Desserts are very traditional Nicaraguan!More
