Mexican

New Rebozo, which is run by Chef Paco, serves traditional Mexican dishes that have received awards for their authenticity. The menu is filled with a variety of spicy, sour and sweet flavors. These dishes are never prepared in heavy grease or pork fat, providing guests with healthier, more flavorful options to enjoy. Diners can stop by and sample one of the 21 different moles, or opt for the Fiesta Mole that features enchiladas covered in six different moles. New Rebozo also features seasonal dishes that use traditional spices and local ingredients, like the Chile Nogada that's only available between September and December.

Visitors to New Rebozo can also try a traditional margarita with their meals, or branch out and discover the pomegranate margarita for new and interesting tastes. From appetizers to dishes, such as carne tampiquena and enchiladas Frida, there is an option available that everyone can enjoy.

We loved it. Our second time there. I think the chef coming out to tell us the specials makes such a great impression. It shows he cares about all his patrons and that is very much appreciated. The service was fantastic and the food was fabulous. We will return soon.

Took the office there for our Christmas party. Chef Paco is such a gracious host and took the time to speak to everyone at the table and make it such a comfortable welcoming experience. The food was amazing as always. He invited us to come to cooking class which I can't wait to do. I have brought many friends, family and colleagues here over the years and it is ALWAYS a wonderful experience. It's like being at your favorite Uncles house for dinner.

I was there once before, I thought it was good upscale food and great margaritas! But this past time was new year's eve and I thought was way over price for very small portions was almost over $200 +tip for 3 people 2 margaritas, was really not worth it!

What a gem in Oak Park. The food was excellent, and of great quality. Chef Paco, who actually walks around to your table, introduces some of the special dishes is an absolutely delight.

This was probably the best Mexican restaurant I have ever been to. The mole dish was outstanding. The chef came to our table to describe the specials and we ordered what he recommended. We were so pleasantly surprised because we ordered dishes we normally would not. What a treat! I would highly recommend this place.

Go visit Chef Paco. And then say hello to his moles. OMG. It's an experience, not a meal. You will not be disappointed.

Disinterested staff, 20 min wait for reserved table despite tables open, no alcohol in drinks. Things have changed a lot here. Disappointed. Food still good, but not enough for me to go back.

Just a few more weeks to enjoy the Chiles en nogada before pomegranate season ends, so go to New Rebozo soon! Chef Paco, as always, prepares terrific, creative and tasty food. His moles are a blend of traditional regional recipes and his own creations, and they are out of this world. We had a great Friday night dinner at New Rebozo and highly recommend this special place.

We have been to New Rebozo twice recently, and both times the food was outstanding. Chef Paco takes an interest in all of his customers, and personally tells about the specials. The enchiladas with mole sauce were really excellent. This is a great place for a night out.

Definitely my favorite Mexican food place.. the chef greeted us upon arrival and then he comes to your table and tell you all about his food, which got us all trying things we normally never would of got. It was all delicious and we will be going back frequently

I had an absolutely wonderful dinner. Everyone was so nice and helpful. My mixed drink was perfect and the food was great. I love the atmosphere as it is warm and inviting. I will be returning to try the Moles and the Portobello Tacos. Gracias por un tiempo maravilloso.

New Robozo was excellent. Food was very very good. The staff, including Chef Paco, were welcoming and friendly. The atmosphere was great. Our only complaint was that it took 20 minutes or so beyond our reservation time to be seated as the restaurant was over capacity when we arrived. The food, service, and experience were, however, worth the wait.

Paco is the most consistently professional & personable owner/Chefs I’ve ever met. Doesn’t matter if it’s a quiet Tuesday or a busy Saturday, Paco greets you like a long lost friend and the show goes from there. The food is seasonal, complex and delicioso! OMG!

While we had an early reservation, it was a busy Saturday night and we neglected to say we needed to leave by a specific time, so some members of out party took a portion of their meal into go containers...but they might have needed to do so anyway, as their portions were more than they could eat. They all said they would come back again on a more relaxed night.

The Chile en Nogada is a seasonal special and tastes heavenly. Chef Paco added a new mole this month: eggplant. He's a genius and makes every diner feel welcome.

We love this place, they have great customer service and the atmosphere is great. We love all the food but their Chile Nogada is out of this world. We patiently wait for September to arrive to be able to enjoy this plate. My parents love the tamal on mango sauce. All the food here is great and Paco is the best Chef and he loves taking care of his customers. It makes you feel like you are family and not just a customer.

Had a great night out for my anniversary. Chef came by to welcome us and showed us the specials made us feel very comfortable. The appetizers were brought out very quickly as well as the rest of our dinner. We never felt rushed at any moment during dinner. All of the food was tasted great and was very well presented. My wife loved everything we ordered but especially the fiesta mole. They had great use of technology and made it very easy to pay. Overall had a great time out.
