Reviewed 1 November 2015

We ate at the Marquez Cafe for breakfast mainly due to a lack of other places to eat. It turned into a wonderful stop. The chiliquiles are some of the best I've ever had, and the red sauce they smother the chiliquiles in is equally wonderful. They cook their eggs and bacon in sauce too, and it is truly fantastic. Plus, you get a lot of food and it's cheap, and everyone there is very nice.

This is a typical country eatery. I love this type of place. Regulars hanging out talking to the owner. The food was what you would expect. Home cooking. You can also get things you may want to go with you. Also in town there is an old time mail box on the outside wall. You can't Miss it. It hangs there and you open the slot. It's red, white and blue. So neat.
