Family-owned and -operated Barro’s Pizza restaurant is tentatively set to open Nov. 1 at 2730 S. Central Expressway, McKinney, in the former location of Henderson Kitchen & Tap. This will be the first Barro’s Pizza location to open outside of Arizona, which has 46 locations.

The restaurant will have a modern industrial look and offer 20 TVs, a covered patio, a kids area with toys and games, and an exclusive room for parties. There are future plans to expand the patio to include an outdoor play area for children with artificial grass and a small playground.


“We are so excited about being a part of this amazing community,” owner Gina Barro said in a news release. ”My sons Matt and Chris, who will be running this restaurant, look forward to partnering with schools and sports organizations in the area and hosting parties of all kinds in both our dine-in area and private party room.”

Barro’s Pizza will serve pizza with savory and sweet sauces, fluffy crusts, chicken wings, pasta, salads and subs. The new location will also offer 16 beers on draft, bottled beer and wine, and freshly brewed tea as well as offering gluten-free and vegan options. 469-625-2898. www.barrospizza.com
