The first Lito’s Empanadas opened in Lincoln Park in 2007, delivering classic Latin American style “turnover” empanadas to the people of Chicago. With fillings inspired by the cooking of Mexico City, Chef/Owner Ernesto and his dedicated team of professionals at Lito’s work tirelessly to produce what is highly regarded as the best empanada in town. Opening his first full-service restaurant, Chilango Mexican Street Food, in 2006 on Taylor Street in the Little Italy neighborhood, Ernesto established himself in the community for creating elevated Mexican dishes.
