Restaurants across the nation are shifting everyday operations to continue service during the coronavirus outbreak.

Starting March 20, the city of McKinney is requiring all restaurants to halt dine-in services until April 31, at which point dine-in services will be re-evaluated. To stay open and continue offering food to McKinney area customers, several restaurants are getting creative with their offerings.

While the map below is not a comprehensive list of every restaurant and business in our area cities, it will be updated regularly. Readers and restaurant owners who would like to share updates with our editorial team can reach out to us by emailing mcknews@communityimpact.com.
