May 2012 marks the fifth anniversary for Rick’s Chophouse, located in Historic Downtown McKinney. 

In marking the anniversary, partners Rick Wells and Don Day noted that they have much to be thankful for and celebrate, including: Business of the Year Award for 2011 presented by the McKinney Chamber of Commerce; 12 “Best Of” McKinney Awards presented by McKinney Magazine; Top Texas/Southern Restaurants in DFW; Four Stars from acclaimed critic Leslie Brenner; and Good Samaritan of the Year Award presented by the Samaritan Inn. 

"Five years ago, we embarked on an exciting journey," Wells and Day said in an email. "We owe this to you. Each of you, and each experience you choose Rick's, blesses us with the opportunity to serve."

Wells and Day expressed their appreciation to the community, their staff and their loyal patrons for the successes they have experienced. 

Rick’s Chophouse is one of only two four-star restaurants in Collin County. Their unique brand of southern hospitality and commitment to great service has made an indelible mark on downtown McKinney.
