This is one of our favorite Mexican-style restaurants anywhere, and certainly our local favorite. Not an extensive menu, but everything is very well prepared and seasoned just to our taste. Wonderful service by a very friendly and helpful staff. And they're usually pretty happy to...More

This charming Mexican restaurant is in a converted train station. In the summer, you can sit outside on the wrap-around porch. The best margarita--and a good value for the $$. The food is authentic and delicious. I especially love the ceviche (my favorite of anywhere),...More

Great margueritas, good home made tasting chips, and an extensive menu. Bright, traditionally decorated surroundings. Close to current Wilmette train station, was once an actual railroad depot building for the village. You will find something for all members of your party on this menu.

Depot Nuevo never disappoints. Besides delicious fresh food - with daily specials and exceptionally fresh fish, they also offer more typical Mexican dishes. The service is outstanding. The restaurant is managed very well with a stable, well trained, warm staff. They are attentive and always...More

The restaurant is housed in an old train depot and decorated with bright colors. The service was very good however food was not. The fajitas were very tiny pieces of meat with little flavor and the Fiesta salad was mediocre. Will not go back here.

We recently were heading here quite a bit. With frequent visits, the relatively short menu becomes more noticeable. The quality and the novelty of the dishes is very good. Depot Nuevo is often crowded, and there is often a wait. Usually worth it!

Excellent central and south American food, excellent tequila and beer choices, including their own "home brew". Best tortilla chips I've ever had--could easily make a meal of Nachos Libre. The appetizers are the best part of the menu. Nice high energy atmosphere, but a little...More

Award winning Mexican Restaurant and Tequila Bar and Brewpub. Fresh made Mexican cuisine, fantastic margaritas and a 100 bottle craft tequila list featuring only 100% de Agave tequilas. Beginning in 2016 we began brewing our own beer.
