Square Burger. McKinney’s New Hot Spot.

June 24, 2010

There’s a new burger joint coming to McKinney, Texas that I have high hopes for, Square Burger. The doors just recently opened, but you can already tell that they have their ‘game faces’ on — setting the closing time to 11:00pm. I understand that might not mean much to those of you outside of the wonderful town of McKinney, but for the 121,000+ people surrounding our historic square of Downtown, we finally have a cool place to eat and hang out after 5:00pm. I’ve noticed that several shops on the square aren’t doing so well. They’re closing down and new businesses move in that more than likely will do the same. Could this be possible because by the time most of us get out of work, Downtown is closing for the day? That leaves those without jobs, and thus money, left to shop. Yeah, McKinney does have wealthy families that love to spend money, but they usually go to Allen, Fairview, Frisco, or Dallas. People, we have to understand that if we don’t spend our money in our town, who else will? We’ll be left with grocery stores and an infinite amount of car dealerships. I know, I know… I’m getting away from being so excited about Square Burger. I guess what I am trying to say is that other businesses in small towns need to follow the blueprint that Square Burger has so carefully outlined.

Back to these burgers… Square Burger uses a local beef supplier, Genesis Beef, who specializes in grass-fed meat free of hormones, a local brewery, Franconia, who’s brew master comes from Two Rows, and a local bakery, Empire Baking. This is my kind of place. Now only if their impressive menu can top the burgers of Genesee County Michigan’s Halo Burger or Texas favorites, Twisted Root or Snuffer’s. Time will only tell — or I will as soon as I eat there. In the meantime, check out their highly anticipated burger menu:

  • Square Burger – mixed baby greens, tomato, red onion
  • Bleu Burger – caramelized onion marmalade, baby arugula and creamy bleu cheese on a toasted ciabatta roll
  • Smoky Jack Burger – smoked mozzarella, monterey jack, crispy apple-smoked bacon and fried onion strings
  • Mushroom-Border Burger – sauteed mushrooms, avocado slices, crispy bacon and spicy cacciotta cheese
  • High Society Burger – thinly sliced prosciutto di parma, aged balsamic, baby arugula, roasted red pepper relish and fontina
  • Stadium Burger – grilled onions, dill pickle relish, spicy brown mustard aioli and gruyere
  • Bacon and Smoked Cheddar BBQ Burger – old rasputin imperial stout bbq sauce, apple smoked bacon, crispy fried onions and aged cheddar
  • Smoked Salmon Burger – fresh atlantic salmon and smoked wild king salmon with yogurt-dill cream, red onion and chives
  • Lamb Burger – colorado lamb, garam masal, tzatziki, lettuce, onion and tomato on grilled pita with crumble feta
  • Turkey Burger – seasoned with fresh herbs and charbroiled on a whole wheat bun
