This is BY FAR the best Mexican in Vicksburg but unfortunately there isn't much competition. Like their vegetable fajitas pretty well and the shrimp and pineapple ones aren't bad either.

Found this place by accident. Had the shredded chicken taco salad and it was great! Quick service. Good food. I would stop back again!

Stopped here when traveling through last year and had good food and good service so decided to stop again this year. Not sure if the management changed or what but they almost didn't allow me and my service dog in. When they finally relented (after my husband repeatedly told them it was the law) , they seated us next to... 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.

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 seafood, but I tried my husbands and yum!! this is... More

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.
