Description: This is located in the quaint downtown area of Mckinney TX. The burgers aren't square but they are made from fresh local ingredients (including meat = butcher is approx 2 blocks away...and the meat is free of hormones/etc). These are not fast food burgers - the quality and taste found here cannot be compared. And don't forget to sample the sweet potatoe fries too. This is definitely worth the drive from Dallas...and is our very favorite burger place in the USA.

Square Burger sits right on the historic downtown square in McKinney, TX. The food is well prepared and their menu is well thought out... but I go for the iced tea which is the best in McKinney. I ordered a pork chop dinner and it was the best I have ever had in a restaurant. My friend also ordered the... More

What a great find! Three of us tried for the first time this past week, and I can't wait to return! ALL of the fries are great, but the sweet potato ones with garlic aoli for dipping are divine! Onion rings were perfectly battered. Side salad was fresh and crisp, simply dressed with house dressing. Smaller portioned, 5 oz. burgers... More

Stopped in here for a Sunday lunch with my wife (sans kids but would have no issue bringing them along here). We came for burgers and fries, although they did have some other specials that looked good. I had the BBQ Bacon Cheddar burger - the BBQ was very good, the cheese was amazing and it was cooked perfectly and... More

Excellent example of an urban "gastropub" transplanted to the sprawl that is North Dalls. The burger menu is imaginative (tuna, mahi-mahi, lamb, sausage burgers all appear), and the long-as-your-arm draft beer list is entertaining and fun to sample. Our three different meals (beef, tuna, lamb) were very well-prepared, juicy and tasty, as were the sides. The large, airy corner space... More

Beer, Burgers and a prime location downtown make this one of my favorite burger places in the DFW area. Square burger is huge inside , but their flavor sure is. My favorite burgers are typically the blue burger and the high society one, but they are all worth trying. Even the turkey patty is presented in moist scrumptious form! I... More

Very good but kind of expensive for hamburgers AND very loud in restaurant! We were there for lunch and it was packed.

If you want gourmet burgers and onion rings, GO HERE!!! I love this place, very quiet and such a good selection of beer on tap. The onion rings are to die for and the turkey burger and fries are delicious. There are several choices of beef burgers to choose from and you will not be disappointed. I treat myself to... More

I have to say the best burgers I've ever had were the ones at Square Burger on the square in McKinney! Fresh beef and the best frites ever. Also great garlic aioli..if you are in McKinney or just want a pleasant trip you owe it to yourself to drive to McKinney for a Square Burger.

We have lunch at Square burger quite often and love the food. We have never had a bad meal here. The staff if polite and fun and rarely a wait, we love sitting at the bar and talking to the staff behind the bar while we eat. They have several options to the typical burger, such as tuna, turkey, etc.,... More

Love the lamb burger! All their food is amazing. The soup and salads are great, the onion strings are awesome, lots of beer and wine choices. The dessert menu is the only thing lacking (ice cream between cookies, and fried bread with cinnamon and sugar). We eat here often.
