Don Chilito Mexican restaurant in Mission closes December 10


MISSION, Kan. “This is your last chance to get your fix at Don Chilito’s Mexican restaurant in Mission.

After 50 years of Mexican cuisine on the corner of Johnson Drive and Broadmoor Street, owner Barry Cowden opened his restaurant for the last time on Friday morning.

“It was a great run and we want to thank our many loyal customers, all the great employees, suppliers and all the friends we’ve made over the past five decades,” Cowden wrote on the restaurant’s website.

Cowden announced in September that he would retire and close the popular restaurant.

Just because the restaurant is closing doesn’t mean it will be easily forgotten. Cowden sells Don Chilito’s t-shirts at the restaurant on Friday.

You can also pre-order his new cookbook “The Secret Recipes of Don Chilito”. The cookbook is a tribute to the restaurant’s history, along with secret recipes for 16 of the restaurant’s most popular dishes.

The restaurant is open from 3:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Fridays.
