Simply wonderful.

My husband brought me here for dinner tonight. He had been here before, but it was my first visit. Absolutely delicious food, very fresh, not heavy and greasy but totally satisfying.

This restaurant used to be good but, they have changed their menu and their policies. You can not order a single taco, you are required to order a taco plate with two side dishes. You are only allowed to order a two, or three taco plate. $9.50 to $11.00 .They used to allow me to have a small green salad... More

The shrimp tacos were wonderful as was the salsa. The Mexican slaw not so much. Address is currently wrong in TripAdvisor. It is actually just east of 75 on Eldorado Parkway.

Love the shrimp tacos! Never dissapointed with the offerings here. Fast service perfect for lunch. Reasonably priced quality food in a casual setting. In the warmer months you may take advantage of the outdoor seating. Friends have raved about the margaritas here but I have not tried them.

Petra is a wonderful restaurant. One of the favorites of McKinney. The food is generous and very tasty. The chips and salsa are also very good. It is a great place for family and friends.

Was driving through McKinney pulled up mexican restaurant on Tripadvisor, and decided to try Petra. A really good mexican restaurant with friendly service, fast and good food. Not a classy place but the food was good, and the prices were excellent.

I do enjoy the food here. Maybe put out some coupons to remind me of this place because the location is not great.

Best blood orange margarita I have ever had...chips and queso are amazing as well as all their tacos. I usually grab a salad and eat chips and queso...It is located close to Medical Center of Mckinney.

If you like Tex-Mex food, this is the place to go in McKinney. Great selection and some good food. The burrito is the best. Too much food for one person it is so good.

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!
