Square Burger


Ratings and reviews

Certificate of Excellence2015 - 2018 Winner

Location and contact

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.

So much more than burgers at this unassuming corner spot on the square. I love the burgers, of course, but am also a huge fan of the tuna burger and the salmon burger. Yummy cocktails too!

Our first meal in McKinney was here when our realtor dropped us off to eat while house hunting. Never had a bad meal. Awesome tuna burger, fries, burgers, salads and soups. All made in house. Really tasty desserts and lots of beer to try

This place is on the corner with no sign on it except very small on the window. It could get more business if there was a sign but good for me because it's not ever busy when I go in and and can get seated...More

Nice place to eat and visit and have fun with friends and family. You are right on the square so you can see the people walking by. A true experience.

Friendly knowledgeable staff. Interesting menu. Tons of beers on tap, if you like that, but we're not beer drinkers. Visited 4 times and every time it has been consistent, which is a bonus for a small establishment. Burgers cooked to perfection, medium rare! Fries great...More

The best thing about this place is the place, in my opinion. It’s a great space on the corner of the square, nice atmosphere. The food did not impress. I had a Square Burger and a simple green salad. The burger was pretty flavorless, and...More

I grew up in McKinney and knew this place as the McKinney Drug store. Was very nostalgic for me. My husband had a mixed drink, said it was a little heavy on the tonic. I had a moscato and it was wonderful. We got their...More

I was interested in something new on the square so decided to try this place after reading the reviews. Maybe I was there at a bad time, Wednesday afternoon about 3pm. There were maybe ten other people in the restaurant. The service was adequate, nothing...More

The booth and stools were finally repaired a few months ago. Apparently they were going through some type of dispute with the warranty, which is why it took so long to resolve. I almost stopped going there for the same... More
