Bayou Jack’s Cajun Grill permanently closed its McKinney location in May, citing the economic impact of the closures from COVID-19.

In a May Facebook post announcing the closure, management thanked the restaurant’s fans and guests.


“We had a heck of a lot of fun and enjoyed a lot of great food and drink,” the post said.

At this time, there are no plans to reopen the restaurant or relocate it somewhere else, the owner said. There is, however, another Bayou Jack’s location in Roanoke.

The restaurant served Cajun dishes and seafood, such as gumbo, crawfish, oysters and catfish, and had a bar stocked with beer, wine and cocktails. The restaurant was located at 218 E. Louisiana St., Ste. 300, McKinney. www.bayoujacks.com
