In this episode of Arlington Eats, host Cynthia Lemus visits Marquez Bakery & Tortilla Factory where they serve authentic Mexican cuisine and your favorite sweet breads.
“We’ve been in Arlington since 1990 and basically started because there was a need in the community at that time, you couldn’t find Mexican grocery stores that catered to the Mexican community,” co-owner Sally said. Venegas. “My dad decided to move to Arlington and start a business.”
Thirty-two years later, Marquez Bakery has become an Arlington staple for the community. The restaurant is located in the heart of the entertainment district at 1730 E. Division St., Arlington, Texas 76011. They are one of their customers’ favorite places to have breakfast or lunch, and there is one thing which makes them unique.
“We don’t do anything fixed; everything is made from scratch from recipes that have been managed over the past 40 years,” Venegas said.
Marquez Bakery has expanded to include a panaderia, a flour tortilla factory and a restaurant with a varied menu.
“Our menu is authentic Mexican cuisine, we serve huevos rancheros in the morning, burritos for breakfast and for lunch, we serve asados, guiso, menudo and barbecue on the weekends and we have a variety of pan dulce. We make marranitos all the way to orejas, which are a Mexican gourmet pantry,” said employee Maria Rodríguez.
They are open every day from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday to Saturday and from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday. If you want to see their extensive menu, visit their website marquezbakery.com or follow them on Facebook.
