Serving a mix of authentic Mexican flavors, Chilakillers is joining the Lenexa Public Market as an anchor tenant and is expected to open in late Spring.

Chef Fernando Borrego launched Chilakillers as a food truck in 2022. After making appearances throughout the metro – including the Lenexa Public Market’s Friday Night Sound Bites music series – Chef Borrego knew he was ready for the next step in his business’ development.

“After building a strong following with our food truck, we believe now is the perfect time to bring our authentic Mexican cuisine to a permanent place here at Lenexa Public Market,” said Chef Borrego. “We are thrilled to open our doors and share our passion for Mexican food with this vibrant community.”

“The inspiration for the Chilakillers name pays homage to one of Mexico’s most beloved dishes – chilaquiles. Made with crispy tortilla chips, flavorful salsas, melted cheese and meat. Our chilaquiles are a labor of love, with every batch made fresh to order using authentic ingredients and traditional recipes. We’re excited to bring this classic dish and more to our new location, here at Lenexa Public Market,” said Chef Borrego.

In addition to chilaquiles, Chef Borrego looks forward to serving a variety of Mexican dishes including tortas, tacos, tamales, nachos, quesadillas, flautas, street corn, arroz con leche, and tres leches at the Public Market.

“We will feature a variety of delicious offerings with our signature items been tortas, tacos and our popular chilaquiles,” said Chef Borrego. “We are excited to have a bigger space to create new dishes and offer specials, showcasing the culinary creativity and expertise that sets us apart. Our menu is crafted with care and attention to detail, ensuring that every bite is a flavorful delight, and we can’t wait to share it with you.”

“Fernando is ready to expand his concept from the constraints of a food truck to a more comfortable set-up in his commercial kitchen stall,” said Public Market Manager Tessa Adcock. “We are excited to share this adventure with our next local, authentic restauranteur and business owner.”
