The owner came to our table and it was clear how much passion he had for his food... a truly warm and kind personality. As vegetarians, we loved our Chimichanga and fajitas. The salsa had a great kick, and the main meals felt like they were made in a home style Mexican kitchen. We'll definitely be back soon, especially to... More

New Rebozo came highly recommended by a friend who stated--"You just HAVE to try it"--We will definately return--Chef Paco and staff captured it all. Restaurants which invite you to feel like family are a rarity--New Rebozo owns it! Love the atmosphere--warmth, inviting, and the aroma of flavorful food was a mind-body experience! The Food: Excellent--Chiles Nogada, Fiesta Mole, Pork Tenderloin... More

I love this restaurant. The food is delicious but the owner is Mr. Personality. He makes eating there a personal, warm experience.

We arrived a bit early for our reservation yet the staff sat us immediately. The owner was at our table to greet us. He was incredibly welcoming. We were there with our 6 and 3 year old girls for our youngest daughter's birthday. The staff and owner had everyone smiling and laughing throughout the meal! We started with the guacamole... More

We have visited New Rebozo several times as a family. The food is excellent and fresh, but our favorite part is getting to meet Chef Paco. He proudly describes the specials to every table himself and is very visible in helping to make sure that every guest is enjoying their meal. Even our picky kids eats Chef Paco's black beans!...

This is the most inventive, updated yet authentic Mexican cuisine you will find in the area, in an intimate setting with warm attentive wait staff and the delightful oversight of Chef Paco. We've been enjoying Chef Paco's cuisine for over 20 years and have had the pleasure of experiencing the evolution of his cooking through the decades. The tamarind and... More

We'd had a nice family dinner here a few months earlier, and had a nice time. I didn't remember the food being notably awesome or awful, so when we were struck with a taste for tacos my husband and I headed over fairly late on a Saturday night. We paid $16 & $18 for two plates, three tacos each, of... More

You must go here just to have the owner describe the specials! Oh My God!!!! The menu is created with passion. He is so fun and nice. I don't always like the specials as described or am a little leary about trying them, but my husband (who doesn't try anything new) always tries whatever the owner shows us, and it's... More

We decided to give New Rebozo a chance with a a couple from out of town and discovered a pretty nice place. The owner comes out and goes over the specials with an iPad, and the ladies were captivated. The food was fantastic. I knew we were in for a treat when we tried the salsa, which was incredible.

Francisco Lopez, known as Chef Paco, of New Rebozo started in Oak Park. He is eccentric, fun, enthusiastic about food and the most welcoming person you will ever come to meet. Paco is the Chef/Owner of one of The Best Authentic Mexican Restaurants in the Chicago land area as voted by the Mexican government, an honor many patrons agree with. To ensure a healthier menu and contradictory to many Mexican restaurants. Paco's specials are always innovative with traditional roots and seasonal ingredients. Over the years, New Rebozo has been given awards for its authenticity and just downright great food. The passion and love that comes through every member of the New Rebozo staff is intoxicating and will bring you back time and time again.
