The revamped Shops at Kenilworth complex in Towson will soon be adding a taco spot.

Felipe’s Mexican Taqueria Restaurant, a New Orleans-headquartered chain with seven locations across Florida, Louisiana and Massachusetts, has signed a lease for a 3,500-square-foot, freestanding building to be built in the mall’s lower half. Construction will start this spring and it would open sometime in early 2020, per a release.

The eatery bills itself as a fast-casual restaurant with authentic Mexican recipes, and equipped with a full bar that puts “a special focus on hand-squeezed key-lime margaritas.” The business has expanded to new cities in recent years, including Boston and several in Florida. One reviewer for the Gainesville Sun, where Felipe’s arrived in 2016, wrote that it’s “several steps above” more entrenched (and widespread) competitors like Chipotle and Moe’s, thanks to its full bar and “innovative” selection of food. A quick glance at the menu indicates it offers burritos, tamales, tacos, tostadas, quesadillas and other Mexican staples.

The mall in Towson has recently been adding tenants, as reported by the Baltimore Business Journal. The mall underwent $30 million in renovations after being acquired by Greenberg Gibbons.

Mackenzie Real Estate principal John Harrington represented Felipe’s in the leasing deal.
