Attentive waitress but food took a long time to come out of the kitchen. Blackened catfish, as the name might suggest, was charred beyond recognition. Fried catfish was better. Canned green beans and frozen fries a bit disappointing. Ants on the table and a cockroach...More

I have eaten here many times. The food is predictably good, portions are plenty. It is a “Delta Southern” old style restaurant. Small tables, a little crowded, nothing fancy, but the history of Clarksdale and surrounding community is shown by the walls and walls of...More

The Ranchero is not very inviting on the outside and is a little rundown inside. However, the server was very nice when she seated us, and the food was very good. We both had their pulled pork plate that came with beans, cole slaw and...More

Great steaks, ribs, salad. The memorabilia on the walls tells a story. Classic delta eatery, not to be missed.

This is a traditional diner established in 1959 and used by locals. It was our favourite meal from a two week road trip of The Deep South. We had two steak dinners with french fries and salad. Our waitress was very polite and attentive. The...More

A totally different style to the fast food outlets on S State near the motels and the downtown restaurants - more of the traditional almost country style of cooking in an old fashioned atmosphere - probably hasn't changed in decades. My biggest negative was they...More

I wasn't sure what I'd find when I walked into this restaurant. Despite the name, it's not Mexican, but a local family diner. The inside is definitely old fashioned and decorated wall to wall with area memorabilia. The actual menu was torn, disgusting, and in...More
