For years, one of our founders longed to introduce McKinney diners to the Mexican food he loved from the kitchen of his grandmother, Petra. So, in 2007, we created Petra Fresh Mexican Bistro to honor the delicious recopies from this beautiful woman.
At Petra Fresh Mexican Bistro, we take more time to make everything from scratch, by hand, with the freshest ingredients from recipes that are authentically Mexican, not so much Texan.
When you come to visit, you can choose to enjoy a relaxing occasion with friends and family or a quick meal on the run. Dine in or take out, you will discover authentic Mexican food you won’t find anywhere else.

Petra’s Happy Customers
A hidden gem for really fresh, casual, very tasty Mexican dishes that are both modern and authentic. It's almost a combination between Tex-Mex and Cali-Mex...with a bit of traditional, authentic Mexican cooking. Surprisingly health and quality conscious for the 'burbs. Perfect for lunch as there are many options under $10 - cheaper and more exciting that Chipotle! As a rice/beans snob, I was blown away by how good they are here - and super impressed that everything is made in house, from the salsa to the flour tortillas.
The guajillo chicken was very authentic. Reminded me of a dish Mom used to make in Mexico. We called it azado but the Chile sauce was similar and spicy. Very good authentic Mexican food.
Carnitas were incredible and the slaw has the most unique flavor I've ever experienced. This is my Go-to spot for fresh taste.
Petra is a fresh, hip Mexican-style restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating, fantastic good, and welcoming staff. My tacos al pastor were amazing, their chips and queso are addictive, but it was their willingness to alter a recipe to help my friend who who cannot eat gluten that impressed me the most. Make sure to give this restaurant a try. You'll love it!
