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.

Unfortunately this place has gone down in quality of food and service with prices going up. Love chef Pavo- however the service was awful. Had reservations. Were seated at a table with water already poured with melted ice. No menus given. About 10 min later chef came to explain specials. Waitress came and brought menus. Ordered guacamole appetizer- not fresh. Other places that make it table side are better. Ran out of chips and water. Had to take water from nearby table. Food ok. Used to be my ch fresher. Waitress never asked how food was. Finally came and ordered a margarita but it took over 25 min and arrived after dinner. Horrible service. Combined with Chicago downtown prices and low food quality there are better options with creative Mexican food elsewhere. Sorry- but honest.

Outstanding meal, some of the finest Cuisine we've had in over a year. Treated like we were visiting family. The chef comes out and explains the menu and why he loves each dish so much. A great experience.

I love this place! Food is terrific and the service is great also. The owner comes to each table and explains the specials of the day. Unfortunately for me I only eat tacos but Paco's Tacos cannot be beat. Oh my God!

We've not been here for a few years, tried it again and were not disappointed. The food, ambiance and people watching were very satisfying. So often a "Mexican" restaurant will serve a generic menu that a general clientele has come to expect. The menu at New Rebozo is unique, with ingredients and flavors specific to indigenous regions. Also, we notice a lot of people of Mexican descent dining at the restaurant, another indicator of the quality and character of this restaurant. On a Saturday, it was quite crowded of course, with wait times even for those with reservations, but nobody seemed to mind. We also liked the express service of being able to pay our check at the table with the server scanning our card into his phone. Very convenient.

Chef Paco loves food and loves his guests. The special empanada appetizer with corn did not disappoint. The mole special sauces were amazing--I had two that I'd not tried before, including one that was Paco's creation. My boyfriend had skirt steak, which was grilled to perfection. And I told him that my taking him to New Rebozo was a test of his taste...he passed. He loved it as much as I do, so now it can become our place! As always, delicioso.

My husband chose to go here for his last minute birthday dinner. We secured a reservation 1 hour prior to arriving and it was such a pleasant surprise. From start to finish we had such a delightful time. The food was excellent. Appetizers and entrees were the special of the day and our drinks were the perfect match.
I’ll definitely be going back to try all the different moles prepared by chef Paco. This is a must if you are in the area.
