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
First timers. I got the Mexican beef tips and my wife got the poblano chicken. Beef tips was a little chewy but not bad overall. Poblano chicken was great. We both tried the tortilla soup which was okay. Overall we would come back and try different stuff.
Really good Mexican food. They fall a little closer to Mex than Tex. Everything I have had was very fresh and seasoned well.
Petra offers fairly sized portions at decent prices. Though I wasn't terribly impressed on my last visit, it may have been my own fault for not requesting things to be spiced up. If you are a fan of fire--metaphorical, of course--then you're going to request extra even when a dish is denoted as being spicy. I hadn't been in years but recalled it being sensational and unique. The service was superb as it has always been to my recollection but my Diablo Shrimp and its accompanying tortilla soup were both lacking a bit in the flavor department before and even after adding hot sauce.
The Mexican pasta and the fish tacos are the best in town. Real fresh food is what you get at Petra.
