When diners walk through the front doors of Wilmette’s Depot Nuevo, owner Rob Garrison makes it his mission to make them happy. 

From hand-squeezing hundreds of limes each day for the restaurant’s famed margaritas to brewing their own beers to pair with their traditional but elevated Mexican dishes, Garrison and the Depot Nuevo staff put in the extra effort to ensure their customers leave satisfied and wanting more.
