First time there and it was overall very good. I got the fish tacos which were stuffed into homemade flour tortillas that were really yummy. My friend order the veggie tacos and they forgot her avocados! ! That should be illegal! Also the beans and cilantro rice were yummy and perfect portions. Will Def visit again!

Get a manger and more help. We have been going there for years and last Friday the service was terrible. We love the place but the last 6 months have been frustrating.

We frequent Petra and love it. The food is consistent and always delicious. The Monterey burrito meal is the best deal, we get it almost every time. Everything I've tried is delicious. The strawberry lemonade is the best.

Food always well prepared and presented. Very good margaritas. We were coming back from George W Bush Library and decided to stop and enjoy one of their frozen drinks. We'll worth the stop.

We live in Mckinney and eat here whenever we want Mexican food. Clean facility, efficient wait staff and killer Mexican food prepared in a kitchen that is viewable to the patrons.

I love Petra's and have eaten here many times over the last few years. However, seems there is a management change and someone in the kitchen doesn't appear to know what they're doing. I ordered the flauta's the last time I was there (my favorite) and instead of a shredded chicken consistency, they were like chewed up baby food. It... More

I came across Petra on trip advisor. Best fish tacos I've ever had. Big fish fillet inside. I think I ordered fried fish, but it was more of a seared fish. Even better! Delicious! The frozen Sangria Margarita swirl was smooth, and it actually had alcohol in it. They have a patio, but it was booked for a large party,... More

Petra has found a good formula for their menu that works well. In spite of their poor location they continue to draw a good crowd We go there about 5-6 times a year and the food is consistently good. Great margaritas and sangria. Good patio.

Had dinner at Petra tonight. We eat here every couple of weeks. Tonight the margarita swirls were good. The raspberry swirl was very fresh. Quesadillas were perfectly proportioned and filling. Ordered chirps for the first time after seeing others get them. Tummy and perfectly cooked.
