Lalo Zamora has been in the food industry for over a quarter-century. Over those years, he has been on a journey to bring fine dining and the Mexican culture together. Lalo’s vision, hard work, and determination have brought him here, to the heart of McKinney. El Mejor, which opened in 2019, brings a family-owned business into the forefront and creates a welcoming space for the warmth of the Mexican-American atmosphere to flourish and its food to be enjoyed.
From his humble beginning at a truck stop, to opening Camino Viejo on Sherman square in 2013, and now opening El Mejor on McKinney’s Town square in 2019, Lalo’s vision to meld two cultures, fresh food and a lively atmosphere are establishing his restaurants as community favorites in the heart of two historic, and vibrant town squares.
