We were looking for a place to sit have a beer/margarita while watching sports. Their bar was right where you walk in-- AWKWARD. Unfortunately, they didn't carry the channels for NASCAR. This restaurant had great food and a decent margarita. Their shrimp fajitas were to die for! I don't eat... read more

Horrible customer service. My order was wrong, they didn't correct it, and they still charged me. Never will I ever return to this location.

The El Ranchero is one of three Mexican Restaurants in Vicksburg. The food is good at a very good price.

Now called Martinez. Great margarita to start the meal, then Steak tacos (Carne Asada) and the Martinez enchiladas for lunch. Very tasty and the special sauce (on the side) packed quite a kick. Very fresh, fast, and flavorful. Well decorated interior, clean restrooms. We'll stop back next time we're in town.

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

We loved visiting here with friends and visitors, and Cadets from chamberlain-Hunt Academy. Good food, very good prices.
