We just had dinner and it was perfect. The service was excellent. We had ribs and steak. The steak was the best I have had in 6 years in Nicaragua travels and the ribs were perfect. Very casual comfortable setting welcoming all. We asked for...them to get us a cab and the cab they got was half the price of the one that took us there.More

I was impressed with Jimmy Three Fingers. The food is solid, definitely the best American-style barbecue you'll find in the country. I usually go for the queen size ribs and rotate among the different sauces and have never been disappointed. The sides are equally appealing,...and service is generally attentive. I've come as part of a group and pre-ordered the food, and it's been ready within a few minutes of our arrival, with all of the food coming as requested. The ambiance is also nice, casual but thoughtfully designed. If you're from a barbecue destination don't bother, but the rest of us will enjoy our beer and ribs and Jimmy Three Finger.More

Cant zero in on what it was about the experience that impressed me the most; was it the Great tasting ribs that slide off the bone like no other i've had in years, anywhere .., or was the the knowledge and well trained staff and/or...the price for such overall quality.. I give this place my very best rating as i believe it to be one of the best restaurants in managua, way way affordable, fast service and great tasting .. lick your fingers RIBS!More

I almost feel bad dinging a star, but I'll explain and maybe it will get fixed. I've eaten here three times and I'm never disappointed. I've only eaten ribs, I've never tried anything else. He's got it down to a science and yes, Jimmy only...has three fingers, at least on one hand. I met him, but couldn't ask how it happened. I digress.... they have 4 sized of rib servings: Emperor, King, Queen and ...Lunch...I can't remember the small size name. I ordered the King size, trying not to be too glutonous and couldn't quite finish. I probably wouldn't order the queen size just because i'm macho enough and I like the leftovers. You can get potato salad or mashed and his sauces (there's a few choices) are great. My one complaint...is the sauces are put on after and they weren't hot or heated, so I had hot ribs, with cold/room temp sauce and it threw me off. It didn't ruin the meal, it didn't keep me from going back, and it wouldn't keep me from recommending this joint...so go there, eat big, eat too much...and if it's that important to you, just ask them to heat the sauce or just shut up and eat it! ;-)More

I was waiting for a relative in their old place close to Ticabus. I decided to take a few beers and have dinner while waiting. It was excellent. It made my day. I remember the meat was tender and well cook.

The smoked and honey BBQ dirty south rib style recipe it´s a must to try if you´re coming down to Nicaragua and would like a bit of closure from home hahaha (The chili is really tasty!). The service is actually very good per the country´s...customer service standards and the atmosphere is cozy if you want to be inside with AC or experience a more beach/surf ranch style shack house for sports events and a few cold ones. In my opinion, being Nicaraguan and raised in the U.S.A. no other place to have some good ole southern hospitality cuisine!!More
