Mexican restaurant Don Chilito’s website tells visitors, “Your safety is our #1 priority.” The Johnson County District Attorney’s Office might beg to differ.

District Attorney Steve Howe says the business at 7017 Johnson Drive in Mission is the only one in the county that has openly defied requirements that employees and customers wear masks to prevent the transmission of COVID-19. Of some 1,400 calls about mask compliance to the D.A.’s consumer fraud hotline (913-715-3003), Howe says Don Chilito’s is alone in forcing his office to consider going to court over the issue.
