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.

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.

Chef-Owner Paco creates the most amazing seasonal dishes along with his regular menu. One of my favorite restaurants in the area! Or as Paco would say "Oh my God!"

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.

Excellent and unique food. Chef Paco is delightful. The pomegranate entree is superb and the chocolate-jalapeno ice cream dessert is not to be missed.

Another great dinner at New Rebozo!!! My three kids all got the Fiesta Mole. They all agreed that the sunflower mole was their favorite. The eggplant mole was awesome as well.

Simply superb mole inventions on a plate of 6 enchiladas. Eating outside on the patio was delightful on a pleasant evening. Taco soup was also creative, but not much soup — too much bean content (refried?)

Chef Paco is a gem. He makes you feel wonderful every time that you arrive. He is a fantastic salesman. He has upgraded his spiel with technology. He has pictures of everything on the iPad. The food is truly spectacular. We had fantastic jicama salad as an entree. Two special Margaritas. One Hibiscus and one Tamarind. The Tamarind margarita came with a Tamarind fruit roll up on a stick and a Tamarind pod (don’t eat the seeds). One of us had fish tacos with several different salsas on each taco. We also had Chef Paco’s special molé dish. 6 enchiladas each with a different molé. He has recipes for 29 Molés. You’d have to be crazy to make molé from eggplant. I guess that Chef Paco is on a continuum from brilliance to insane.

Saw this restaurant featured on the food network. Mole being my favorite Mexican food, this place was Heaven on Earth. Chef Paco addresses every table personally, with enthusiasm and humor. A great experience, we will be back.

We were celebrating our anniversary and couldn’t think of a better place to do it. We started with outstanding guacamole and my wife had an excellent margarita. All our entrees were outstanding and the service was attentive without being intrusive. We have been coming to the New Rebozo since our now 20 year old daughter was a newborn. As usual, Chef Paco greeted us warmly and enthusiastically described the specials. Also as usual, his enthusiasm was entirely warranted.

Great little restaurant in Oak Park. Chef Paco swung by our table and recommended a delicious appetizer. Talapia tacos very good. After dinner Chef Paco came by and recommended an apertif that was delicious. Certainly going to add this gem to our regular rotation.

Very unique and delicious Mexican-style dishes prepared with a unique flare by Chef Paco. We ate on the patio in the back and spent 2 and 1/2 hrs enjoying a fabulous meal. Chef Paco was personally very attentive as was all of the wait staff. This is a wonderful, unique restaurant with delicious food and fabulous service.

I just loved the chef and how he came to each table but other than that the service was mediocre as well as the food. I expected much more out of the food especially for what I paid.

This is the second time me and my have dined at the New Rebozo and it was as excellent as the first time we went there, but I have one question why the owner doesn't have a parking lot? it makes it defalcate to park!

Chef Paco always makes a meal an adventure. And this time again he succeeded. We started with a sample of six moles, which were delicious. My wife ordered the nights special of Talapia Tacos topped with a mango salsa. I ordered his Shrimp Diablo. Both meals were fabulous and would be ordered again. We topped off our meal with a trio of mini Flans with different flavors. A fantastic night filled with fantastic food. Absolutely recommended and will visit again
