The team that created Local Yocal, the acclaimed rancher-owned, farm-to-market retail and butcher shop, now offers a farm-to-table restaurant, Local Yocal BBQ & Grill, located in the heart of Downtown Historic McKinney. Specializing in smoked BBQ by day and premium steaks at night – with lots of goodness in  between – Local Yocal BBQ & Grill is sophisticated Texas cuisine through and though. Chef-driven and scratch-made.

Softly opened in December 2018 by Dallas’ famed butcher Matt Hamilton, owner of 30 cowboy hats and a ranch in Oklahoma, the mom-and-pop restaurant sets the standard on “locally sourced products” including the finest meats available from their own butcher shop of the same name.

Beef is dry aged at least 14 days, enhancing tenderness and flavor. Continue reading
