    Default Angus Hamburger in Rivas!

    I'm posting this here because if the hotel accomodations are remotely as good as the quality of the hamburger in their restaurant, then Nicarao Inn in Rivas is THE place to stay.

    Today's brush with the law went so well (with the generous help of friends!), that a celebratory lunch was in order. We found Nicarao Inn, right next to the Palí store, in downtown Rivas and ended up with THE BEST hamburger I've had the pleasure to experience in 8 years in country, hands down!

    The menu advertises Angus beef in their burgers and I was not disappointed. Well, okay, I was a little disappointed when I realized I was down to my last bite...I figure it won't be long before we find ourselves munching back at Nicarao Inn!!!

    I stayed there about 5 yrs ago, rooms were so so, but I can still remember the hot water, it was hot.

    Rivas also has the famous Pizza Hot and a burger place with pretty decent burgers. Rivas is the first place I ever saw one of those Tona sub zero beer coolers, needless to say, I was impressed.

    Rivas also has some of the best bus stop food I know of.

    My favorite place to eat in Rivas is Mariscazo. It is Nicaraguan food, always tasty, fish, pork and steak.

    As you exit Rivas on your way south, it is a big rancho roofed place on the right hand side of the main panamerican hwy. Really good food, I have to agree with Dan. There is a place next to the Ball Park that serves good food also.

    Thanks, I lost internet for about five hours. The place next to the ball park, is that the El Principe which also serves Chinese type food. I say Chinese type food because it is like no Chinese food I have had before but still tasted good.

    You're right about El Principe, Dan, they serva a Cantonese rice. As good as I have ever had in Nicaragua. That is the thing I miss about the States, a great chinese food restaurant. I have gone to many here in Nicaragua and have not found 1 good one.

    Next time you're south of Jinotepe, right on the Pan Am Hwy, stop in at Casa Blanca. Heck, call me and we'll meet you for lunch. Seriously tasty stuff and huge portions. They serve bread instead of egg rolls, but it's homemade bread, really yummy!
