McKinney manages to fuse big-city amenities with small-town kindness, making it a must-visit destination for business and leisure alike. As you'd expect, mouthwatering Texas-style barbecue is available in abundance from both locally owned and national establishments. Similarly, seafood and Tex-Mex eateries impress with their authentic and great-tasting offerings. But where McKinney really manages to set itself apart is in the area of Cajun cuisine. Authentic Cajun restaurants offer fantastic meals, from seafood gumbo to a fried oyster po'boy sandwich. These diverse options come together to create a phenomenal restaurant scene that’s worth a taste. McKinney visitors should make an effort to try any barbecue variation and authentic, spicy jambalaya!
