We came with 2 babies, the owner was so helpful and welcoming, that it made the time we spent there so nice. The food was really good. I took a burger with mushrooms (perfect) and my friend took a mac and lobster with mushrooms, I tested it and it was so good too. Kids got mac and cheese: really good... More

I know there are rave reviews about this place. But for the life of me I can't understand why. The burgers are so-so and overpriced. I've tried it three different times and have yet to feel positively about it. The only thing it has going for it, in my personal opinion, is that it's on the square in McKinney, which... More

We went with another couple to Downtown McKinney for lunch and decided on Square Burger! The burgers were all spectacular! They have the biggest onion rings I've ever seen! The service was excellent. We will definitely go there again!

We have eaten there a few times, either by ourselves or with our grandchildren. The food has always been good and different from what you might expect with "Burger" in the name. Yes, they do offer burgers but they also offer lots of other foods plus good beer and good wine.

We went at a busy time, so we sat at the bar. The bartender was very friendly, but I had to place my drink order twice, the food was good- I had the mushroom burger and sweet potato fries- and both were excellent. Service can be improved- I would have ordered two drinks- but it took so long to receive... More

This is a wonderful downtown lunch spot. It is best to go during the week and avoid a wait. We had the bratburger and a fabulous pumpkin bisque last time in. Soooo good. The wine and beer list is quite nice and they do have a full bar. Our waitress was knowledgeable, helpful, and attentive. Of course, we'll be back!

There - I said ... rather wrote it. Best burgers in North Texas. This is a very popular location so if you're planning to have dinner, go early or plan on a 30 minute wait for a seat (unless you're good with sitting at the bar - less intimate but you can be seated fairly quickly and get on your...

My husband ordered the Smokey Jack Burger, and he gave it an excellent rating, very tasty. I ordered the Salmon Burger--amazing flavor, highly recommend. I added the cucumber & sprouts that comes with the tuna burger, and I really liked the addition. Andrew, our server, was fantastic. He helped us out with suggestions for taste testing spirits. Decided on a... More

You walk into a quaint restaurant in downtown Mckinney. People and service are pleasant. There is 30 beers on tap. Per my mother the BEST sweet potatoe fries. A interesting selection of burgers. All food was excellent. I was expecting a decent lunch and turned out to be a memorable dining experience. A must try.

Thank Soonerstud50

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.
