Food's awesome, the wings, the hamburgers, I have to say everything that has to do with food was excellent. Meanwhile, the service was terrible. It sucked. The waiter was literally just across the table, and I was screaming to him "Sir" more than 5 times! Until one of my family members grabbed all of the plates in the table and... More

I went there to dine with a friend. First time for me, recurring time for him. We ate chicken wings (good taste) and drank a couple of beers each one. Has a good selection of beers and great prices. The ambience and service was adequate at the time.

Fun spot for happy hour. Highly 'Americanized' feel to it. If you have been traveling for a while & dying for a good burger or wings this is the spot to try. Live music at night busy. Keep in mind service is always slower in Central America so be patient & order another drink! ;-)

Flew into town and after checking into my hotel and I was in the mood for dinner. Walk over to Hippos and was greeted by a friendly staff. There English wasn't the best but they tried. Looking over the menu was easy since that had a bunch of pictures next to the items and the menu item names were in... More

I wouldn't go here for food. Food here tries to be "American" and is really awful. If you are from the US, why eat at a place that works to be a mid-range mall focused chain? Prices are high and the place feels cheap. Drinks, however, are cheap and there are usually specials.

If you're looking to satisfy your craving for American style food, you can't go wrong with this place. Great burgers, awesome wings (especially the boneless version), curly fries & giant cocktails - the upgrade to the 'Hippos' size is well worth it & they make a particularly good Long Island Iced Tea here.

When this opened in Las Robles it was so different to what was on offer in managua at the time that they ended up naming the barrio after it. Fifteen years on, and twelve since I left Nicaragua, it's great to know it still does the business. Still the best quesadillas around served with great cold beer. A managua must.

Great place for a Burger and a cold beer. The burger was quality meat and was cooked correctly. My wife had the grilled chicken breast. Food was fresh and well presented. The service and cleanliness were good.
