About Us 

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.

Frequently bring friends for lunch. Food is good & reasonably priced. Atmosphere is what we like. Not so loud & noisy that you cannot hear. Pleasant staff.

I took my wife to eat here several times since we moved to Allen. We both enjoyed the food and helpful/friendly staff. The owner and son are great guys. Today is my wife's birthday so I asked her to list her top 10 favorite restaurants in DFW. Looks like we are going to Petra for her birthday dinner tonight! Thank you Petra for your attention to detail and for holding fast to your values.

Excellent real Mexican food! HIGHLY RECOMMEND! The only con is that its kinda smelly inside. Not a fan of their cleaning product smell... so we eat outside on the patio.

Local counter-service Mexican food. Good, but unremarkable.
