That Little Mexican Cafe

Reviewed By srmokuhn

This afternoon I was hosting two people for lunch and we were looking for some excellent Mexican food. That Little Mexican Cafe had some good reviews and were we disappointed and I was embarrassed.One had fajitas...they were good however two of us had a taste for Quesadillas and never in my life ... at any restaurant... have I (and we) had such skimpy, tasteless food.No salsa, no guacamole, no sour cream .... simply bland quesadillas. I had cheese and when I opened mine to look and show the others... it was practically impossible to see ANY cheese inside.I love quesadillas and have never been to a restaurant and had just that .... no quac or sour cream or sauce.Also ... the salsa and chips were never replenished .... and the attention given to our table was nil.I have never written a negative review before so you know how bad things were.That Little Mexican Cafe has a lot to learn and needs to be more attentive to it's offerings and service.

Depot Nuevo Restaurant

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.

Recommended by family whom we were visiting in Wilmette. He has visited Mexico frequently, as have we, so we are always cautious about trying new Mexican restaurants as most are disappointing. Depot Nuevo does not disappoint! The tacos are delicious and are served in freshly grilled soft corn tortillas The salsas taste fresh. The huge selection of tequilas and mescals appear in very good margarita variations. Best of all is the decor - no giant sombreros, just classy black and white photos of Mexico itself, agave harvest etc.

La Principal

Reviewed By Todd C

They have a smaller menu of appetizers, tacos, and tortas. The tacos we had were some of the best tacos we have ever had. The guacamole was alright, missing a little extra flavor. They have a good drink selection.If we are in Evanston again, we would definitely stop in for lunch or dinner again.

La Cocinita

Reviewed By jaz79h

Nothing bad here. I really like the atmosphere, and staff and warm and informative--kind of like a food truck, one level up. The fish tacos were amazing. Didn't care so much for the carne asada patacones...the plantain "bread" for the sandwich just didn't have a lot of flavor for me, nor did the beef. But my partner liked them fine. Mojitos not very good...tasted like from a mix, with very little real lime or mint...pass on those. Were it up to me, I'd waver between 3 and 4 stars, leaning towards a 3 for the food and bumping up a bit because I liked the people so much. My partner would have given it a four, so the fours have it.Worth trying again.
