Quesillos here are ok, they made it bigger so it doesn't look authentic and they used the size, as a justification to charge you way way too much for it, they want to serve one huge quesillo and make it a whole meal, which is not what this dish is about it. I would say this is the place where... More

Normally, i wouldnt like a restaurant with no variety.....but more than likely if you go to a quesillo shop, you are probably going for one specific food.......quesillos. And El Pipe do quesillos well. Tasty, decently priced. hot and fresh. Right on the highway. would definitely recommend.

The tortillas are made fresh to order and are served warm with quality cheese and cream. It doesn't get better than this as far as quesillos in Nicaragua

My girlfriend is Nica and she has really gotten me into the quesillo vibe over the past few years. We've tried them pretty much everywhere and we agree that this is the best. The key is to not order so big that you gross yourself out. It's almost better to walk away wanting more which is challenging because these really... More

So, this is a rustic place, with HUGE portions. But really authentic! it was delicious but we didn't even eat 1/4 of the super special. I would recommend sharing between 1-3 people, and really go all-in with the superspecial

I live in Ticuantepe and can hardly believe my good luck to have Quesillos El Pipe move into town. I have been several times now and always pleased with the service, food, and atmosphere. I met Don Pipe on my last visit and had a nice conversation with him as he was making sure that his plants and landscaping were... More

As a 16 year afficionado of quesillos and attracted by the almost aramaic cry of Quesillos, quesillos, like the portuguese cry of Carapau fresco carper fresco we tried the new el pipe in Ticuantepe. The place is much better, fresh and comfortable. Except for the fact that the tortillas were cold, the cheese and onions were almost as good as... More

It had been some months since I visited this popular site, the most famous of its kind (Quesillos) in Managua and maybe, in all the country, Nicaragua. Definitely, El Pipe has outdone himself, last night I enjoyed the best Quesillo I have ever eaten in my life. I have also noticed that they have more waiters, service time has improved... More
