If you are a Nicaraguan, or have been in town a few times, and a steak lover, no doubt Los Ranchos is on your list of one of the best places to get a steak in Managua, Nicaragua. I agree for the most part. It is one of the best places but it isn’t the best by a long shot and wouldn’t be tops on my list.
The grilling is impeccable and there are a variety of local cuts available. Prices are probably on the par or a little cheaper than some of the other steak spots. If you want to see prices, click here. (BTW the steak in the picture is half of the “CHUR.GTE P/2” – churrasco for 2.) However, the place is dated. Everything about the place says 1960’s and 1970’s. It’s been around that long no doubt…and continues to be a favorite even for local Managuan high-life. Quality, in general, seems just a bit low for the fame that this place has (bread, salad, sauces). Cleanliness also is a bit off.
Don’t pass it up if you want to compare some of the better known steak restaurants in Managua. Afterwards, however, stick to the ones you REALLY love.
On a scale of 1 to 10, I give it a 7.
