Cuban American “truckstaurant” The Guava Tree is readying to open a new brick-and-mortar location at 104 S. Chestnut St., McKinney. Owners and operators Onel and Pam Perez said The Guava Tree Cuban Cafe and Cantina is expected to open by Oct. 1, with the food truck remaining operational for catering events.


The restaurant will have traditional Cuban menu items, such as Cuban sandwiches, vaca frita, croquettes and pastelitos, as well as Cuban-inspired dishes, such as loaded yucca fries, a chicken-fried sandwich, wings and Cuban donuts. In addition to food, the restaurant will also serve a variety of signature drinks, including mojitos, Guava Tree Sap and McKinney Libre. www.theguavatreetruck.com
