• Felipe's History
1967 by Felipe and Lucy Lujano. Over 42 years
later the original location at 3434 W. Central is
widow, and their two sons, Felipe Jr. and Poncho.

Four years after opening their first restaurant,
Felipe and Lucy decided to expand to a second
location. This time they went to the east side of
Wichita. Felipe's Jr. was opened in 1971 at 7820 E.
Harry. After Several years of traveling across
town daily, Felipe decided to slow the pace
down a little and in 1978, Felipe's Jr. was sold to
his niece and nephew-in-law, Martin and Chela
Martinez.   

Martin and Chela did well over the years and
decided to buy real estate and build their own
restaurant.  Felipe's Jr. moved to Harry & Webb
in 1999 and is run to this day by the Martinez
family.  

The third Felipe's Restaurant was opened in
November of 1991 by Felipe's brother Roberto
and his wife Teresa. They decided to continue
the tradition and open their own location with
Felipe's blessing.  Roberto and his family still
run and operate the 21st & Woodlawn location.  

The newest location is at 119th W. & Maple.
Felipe's sons, Felipe Jr. and Poncho wanted to
continue expanding the legacy their father and
mother began over 40 years ago.  After months of
looking and with Lucy's blessing, the newest
Felipe's restaurant was opened in January of 2009
by the original founders' sons.  

Felipe's newest location boasts modern Mexican
decor mixed with the traditional.  The newest
Lujano family endeavor sits by a relaxing and
beautiful water feature with West Wichita's
largest outdoor patios for al fresco dining.  The
119th W. & Maple location also has a private
party room as well as an outdoor covered patio.

Felipe's Restaurants have been serving fine
Mexican cuisine for over 40 years. Traditional
Mexican recipes and a comfortable family
atmosphere have kept loyal customers coming
back for years.  

Felipe's restaurants have been a Wichita family
tradition for decades.  Whether you're visiting us
again or for the very first time, family traditions
are what Felipe's is about.
