Best Mexican food within 42 miles!

Arrived in Tonopah for the night and we were in want for Mexican food. After a short walk and a couple of nice bowls, we were really hungry when we arrived.

My wife and I ate here while passing through Tonopah. Nice little family run place with good food. They have a good selection of standard Mexican menu items. We both had the enchiladas suizas and they were great. Fresh salsa and good chips. Great service and good prices.

I was passing through Tonopah and looking for a decent place for lunch- El Marques definitely fit the bill. The tortilla chips were crunchy and light and the chimichanga was tasty. The chicken used to fill it could have had more seasoning, but it was still tasty.

The best Mexican food restaurant ever. I found it by accident a few visits ago to Tonopah and now I make sure I go back to it every time I visit. You will not be disappointed.

Stopped by here for food during our overnight stay in Tonopah. Amazing and very authentic mexican food, the combination meals are filling and delicious. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Great variety of mexican food and beer. Surprisingly delicious in such a small town, the best mexican food I've had outside of Mexico!

While visiting a relative in Tonopah he took us here for dinner. It is a nice, friendly restaurant with good service. I judge mexican restaurants on their chops and salsa and they have great salsa!

We found El Marques to be a good choice for dinner. Typical American/Mexican fare. Service was very good. Salsa was tasty. We would return.
