Chef Paco and staff are the best! We visit at least twice a month. The food and drinks are excellent.

The greeting is effusive, the description of the specials is delivered with enthusiasm and pleasure. How could we not indulge in all of the specials? The Moles were unbelievable melt in your mouth wonderful, the ceviches superb and the meat hot pot divine. Great service, excellent food - what is not to rave about?

We all had the chicken enchiladas with poblano mole. Yum! Best mole we ever have had. Chips and salsa very good.

My wife and I loved going to New Rebozo. Paco is an amazing chef and just the nicest guy. He always greets everyone and shows his daily specials. This is not your typical Mexican food. This is what I call gourmet Mexican food. My wife and I have since moved away from Chicago and can no longer go to New... More

This is my favorite Mexican restaurant in the Chicago area. The owner/chef, Paco, greets his guests with a hug and an "Oh my God!". He seems to recognize everybody and treats you like family. He comes to every table and tells you about the daily specials and how the flavors of the dish blend. The bar makes interesting and delicious... More

Chef Paco makes the rounds all the time. When he greats you he will say "oh my god" it is so good to see you. And when he describes his specialties, he says it again. It is a fun restaurant, and the food is great. The specialties are always the best. The regular menu has plenty to choose from, but... More

This is a good place to come with friends , specially in summer to sit outside. Food is pretty good, not the usual overload plate , is a little more gourmet . Main dishes change every time and one of chefs come alongside tables to tell you dish if the day, Not a bad place to go every so often,

That title may sound trite. But that's the favorite phrase of the owner and chef. Not only is the food fabulous, you get that personal touch, every table, every time. The owner comes by and shows you the specials. They also have a nice patio in the summertime.

Went here after we traveled thru Oaxaca and Hualtuco. Chef Paco is so kind and really captures the flavors of Mexico! Love the stuffed pablano with pomegranate, muy rico!!! So easy to bring kids but also a good date place.
