El Rincon Mexican Kitchen & Tequila Bar shut its doors in Frisco in late December and plans to open in McKinney later this year, co-owner Rick Na said.

The Mexican restaurant, previously located at 2809 Preston Road, Ste. 1200, Frisco, opened in 2019 and closed its doors just under three years later. Na cited effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and leasing arrangements with the Frisco location as the reason for the move. The McKinney restaurant, located at 7951 Collin McKinney Parkway, Ste. 700, is expected to open in spring.

“[The McKinney location is] in a residential area, which we have a market that we can really connect with because we're all about wanting to know our guests on a personal level,” Na said. “We like to really work with the community on a daily basis.”

The business opened its first restaurant in Carrollton in 2016, followed by the Frisco location and a location in Addison. The restaurant serves burritos, tacos, enchiladas, fajitas, craft cocktails and more. 469-892-6429 (Carrollton location). www.elrincontx.com
