Square Burger on the town square in McKinney has displaced Twisted Root as my favorite burger place. It doesn't get any better than about a half pound of grass-fed beef (freshly ground just around the corner at Local Yocal and delivered daily) a slice of tomato, nearly a wedge of lettuce, and onion on a large bun. You can actually taste the beef. Even with all the condiments and a layer of mayo or mustard, the rich beef flavor comes through.
Managing Partner Brandon Horricks has been serving up the hamburgers using beef from Local Yocal since he opened the doors in June of last year. The restaurant, at 115 N. Kentucky Ave, also has a full bar, 30 beers on tap and a fine selection of wines. And don't expect a square burger. "We're on the square but our burgers are round," says Horricks. The plates are too. That's a batter-fried dill pickle in the foreground. A nice, tasty touch.
