McKinney's West Side gets home-cooking at it's best!
After owning a restaurant in Central Texas for 15 years, 11|17 owners Justin and Channa Jones, have opened McKinney’s newest eatery on the southeast corner of Stonebridge Drive and HWY 380. Named from the numbers of their children’s birthdays, 11|17 is now serving lunch and dinner 7 days a week.
Several elements made me very happy to welcome 11|17 to our community, the first being the addition of a quality restaurant with a fun atmosphere to the west side of McKinney. Am I alone in this? Other than a few spots in Adriatica, McKinney’s west side is severely lacking a gastronomy scene worthy of our pocket books or family meals. “When Justin and I decided to open a restaurant here in McKinney, we knew exactly the genre needed: something with simple, delicious food, and an atmosphere that allowed parents to sit on the patio with a cocktail, while kids enjoy being outside,” Channa told me mid-February when I initially met her at the then-construction site. I could not agree with her more. Just a few short weeks later, the restaurant opened for business, and the Jones’s invited me to 11|17 for lunch. I can say with all conviction they accomplished their goal!
