A local favorite.

The name has changed to Martinez's but the food and service are still great. I recommend the large quesadilla that will feed 2 to 3 people on a normal day. Good chip and dip, good cold beer, and my wife loves the margaritas.

The chips and salsa were excellent. I had the fajita plate and my wife had the combination plate. The taco meat was seasoned very well. Plenty of food at reasonable price. We ate there twice while in Vicksburg.

This was the best Mexican food I have eaten in a long time. Homemade guacamole is outstanding! Friendly staff, prompt service, reasonable prices. The cheese sauce was excellent. I shared pork carnitas fajitas with my son. Very good. If I lived nearby I would be eating here weekly.

Always fast & friendly here. The food is the best Mexican in town. We end up here at least once weekly, sometimes twice. Good margarita also

As another reviewer noted, the name has changed to Martinez Restaurant. The sign was not lit up so it was very hard to find. The staff was all totally uninterested in us and acted like they just wanted to be somewhere else. Our waitress was fine but never cracked a smile. Sullen is the word that comes to mind. The...

On 9-21-13 we were staying at the Holiday Inn within walking distance of El Ranchero's this is how we lucked up on this restaurant. We thought if we had one to may drinks we could just walk back to the room. We were pleasantly surprised at how clean the place was and how friendly the staff were. I had the... More

The building needs a little updating, but the food is very good. The chips and salsa were excellent as was the cheese dip we ordered. I had the Nachos Supreme which was very good. My granddaughter said her steak fajitas were the best she'd ever had. Attentive and quick service. Only negative was a very loud party of customers....must have... More
