Patina Green Home and Market

This tiny Downtown McKinney shop offers some of Dallas-Fort Worth’s finest meals. Their passion is serving from real farms to the table, so check this place out for lunch! They also offer house-made packaged foods to go and fresh produce for costumers to bring home to the family. If BOB is on the menu, you should totally get it. It’s brisket on a biscuit. Mmm, tasty.

Hutchin’s BBQ & Catfish

This Texas BBQ has been around since 1978, when it first opened in Princeton, Texas as Roy’s Smokehouse. Because it became such a local favorite, Roy had to move to a bigger location. In 2013, Hutchin’s BBQ put itself on the map as one of the top 50 BBQ joints in the world. See what their about and try the all-you-can-eat barbecue buffet that offers briskets, ribs, sausage, and more. All of that is less than $20, making Hutchin’s BBQ & Catfish the best smoked meat bargain in town.

The Smooth Operator (French silk) and Drunken Nut (bourbon pecan) are local favorites.
