It sits on the corner of The Square in McKinney. Unassuming, with nary a sign (besides the burger on the door window) letting you know that a gourmet menu awaits inside this popular local gem. Into its fourth year of business,the chef-driven Square Burger is still a fantastic stop for lunch or dinner by keeping the menu updated, contemporary and always delicious. The interior is casual and simple yet trendy, with a large bar leading up to a blackboard menu that spells out the day's specials.

House Salad with Candied Cashews, Fuji Apples, Tomatoes, Lemon-Herb Vinaigrette

Pumpkin Bisque with Cardamom, Cream and Pumpkin Seed Oil

Macaroni & Cheese Gratin with Asiago Grilled Chicken and Sundried Tomatoes

There are great starters here like seasonal soups, salads and appetizers-all of which could substitute as a meal on their own or in combination with each other. Find yummy options under the "Munchies" like Macaroni & Cheese Gratin (decadent!) and Mini-Grilled Cheese Trio with Tomato Soup.

Smoky Jack Burger with Smoked Mozzarella, Monterey Jack, Bacon & Onion Strings

The burgers, of course, are the main attraction and really live up to gourmet burger status. They  are comprised of locally raised grass-fed beef provided by the neighboring Local Yocal Farm to Market-a full service butcher shop. Most of the burgers are 7 ounces but you can make any of them 5 ounces for a smaller appetite. Not in the mood for beef? Then you'll be happy to find specialty burgers like Salmon, Tuna, Lamb and Turkey all with gourmet add-ons and toppings. The burgers come with a tempura-fried dill pickle spear (salty, crunchy and yummy) and of course the requisite sides to order like Sweet Potato Fries and Onion Strings. And what goes better with a burger than a beer? Find up to 30 beers on tap on their "Wall of Beer" in addition to several wines by the glass and a full bar.

Fried Apple Pie

Even the desserts have a gourmet twist like Mini Ice-Cream Sandwiches, Cinnamon Citrus Fritters and Fried Apple Pies-all offered at our last visit but are subject to change.

Square Burger is a perfect choice for any occasion, whether it's a casual business lunch, a group of friends on the town or dinner with the family after shopping on the Square. The warm and friendly staff will make sure you have a great dining experience along with your gourmet meal, leaving you satisfied and happy you made the stop!
