This is a Pub located downtown McKinney, Texas. I bet they didn’t think long about what to name this place….
The place was dark and probably darker than normal for a pub.
There was no one there for lunch at this time and no one came while we were there.
I ordered the cheddar burger medium rare with a side of fries. The wait was maybe 10 minutes and the burger looked and smelled very good when it arrived. The patty looked like a frozen patty but it probably wasn’t. The burger was cooked well done. I don’t understand why they would take an order for medium rare and cook it well done. That automatically deducts one star in my rating.
Even though it was well done, the burger was actually not so bad. The meat had a pleasant beefy taste but the special cheddar cheese was not special at all. It was bland at best.
The fries were definitely home made. They had a great potato taste but some of them where super soggy. Not sure how they managed to do some just fine and some just awful.
The overall impression was good. The burger was good and the good fries were decent (and the bad fries were horrible). I would probably order a burger here again, but I would emphasize to the waiter how I want it cooked. Had the burger been medium rare or medium I think it would have been much better.
