We had a great time and all enjoyed our dinner out. The service was attentive and he did a great job explaining items on the menu. We loved the live music that night as it really added to the great ambiance for date night.

I had brunch with family members that I haven’t seen since I was a child. They just moved to the North Dallas area and SugarBacon was a great halfway point for all of us. We’ll definitely be returning to this restaurant.

My first visit to Sugarbacon was this week for a business lunch. The food was outstanding. Make sure you try the Sugarbacon appetizer, of course! I had the Salmon BLT, which was fantastic. Service was very good, attentive, but not overboard. I highly recommend this for quiet conversation as well as for the food!

After a disappointing visit a year ago we thought we would give Sugarbacon a second try. The restaurant looks great. Drinks and service were great. Unfortunately we did not enjoy our food. Three of the four dishes were barely warm when delivered. The brisket cheddar enchiladas were really bad (rice and beans were poor too). Sorry just being honest.

Food was good, but a little over priced. Loved the spinach dip, would have been better with bread or chips. Tater tot appetizer was disappointing. Great pork chops and salmon BLT.

I took my wife to Surgarbacon for our 35th anniversary. The food was amazing. The entries were unique, but at the same time very comforting. I travel across the country and eat at world renown restaurants all the time only to find a restaurant in McKinney equal to any of them. And, a big thank you to Clay, our sever for the evening. Your recommendations were great and your service was excellent.

Happened upon this place on a first time trip to downtown McKinney. It was delicious!!! Every bit of it! A little slow to get our food, but was worth it. The ham club was sooo good! Stop here! You’ll be glad you did!

This was an ok visit, but we had an issue with the food. We ordered one of the 50+ steak specials and ordered it medium. It cane out wrong and was very undercooked. We asked the waiter to send it back and it was medium-rare at best. By that time we were going to be late to our play and didn’t have time to send it back for a second time, plus it was uncomfortable to ask a second time. We spent $140 for 2 people, which is little expofor just 2 people. And weren’t even able to eat the steak. Not great. Server was good though. And it was very loud in there which made it hard to hear my guest across the table.

Our server Christian was EXCELLENT! We have dined at Sugarbacon many times (10+) Love the appetizers, sugar bacon, tater tots & onion dip are good. Mushroom bolognese, shrimp & grits & the half chicken are all wonderful. Good cocktail list & enjoy sitting at the bar on occasion. Fun place in downtown McKinney.

Definitely order off the menu and go for the steak! This would be rated one of the best steak houses in Dallas if it advertised it self as that. Service was excellent, management on top of their game, the band playing that night was superb and the food was mind blowing excellent!

For the love of the pig ... and whisky. Try the eponymous app, suculent porkbelly with a pickle over toast. It can be made a meal itself paired with a side or another app. The wisky flights are a must, either the pre assembled ones or make yourself from a respectable list. I tried the chop, which was very decent, but the hominy under it its really what makes the dish.

Exceptional service, ambiance, food, and drinks! I have extensive food allergies and they gave me a million options and showed understanding for accommodating my needs (celiac, dairy allergy, and egg allergy) Absolutely exceptional!! I had the scallops with pesto cauliflower, my dad had the ribs with coleslaw, and mom had the roasted chicken with potatoes and green beens- ALL AMAZING!!!

Good location on the Square in McKinney, great menu, great service, friendly management. Wine selection was mostly unfamiliar choices and quite expensive.

It was our second visit and we will go back.

Half way thru the appetizers the salads came. At that point I told my waitress that I didn't want to see our entrees until we were finished with our salads. Of course the entrees came half way thru the salads. We wanted to enjoy a nice relaxing evening together but we felt compelled to wolf our food down instead. It ruined an otherwise nice evening. We declined the free desserts and just left instead.

FYI, It was totally unnecessary to rush us as our table wasn't needed for another party. A $200 meal shouldn't be a sprint.

Sunday brunch date as we were in the area. Sugarbacon is always a special treat for us. Their brunch menu is creative and had changed a great deal since the last time we visited.

I would highly recommend the “Red Neck Tacos,” actually pancakes with brisket and eggs. Sounds odd but very tasty. And of course the Sugarbacon appetizer is a must. Bloody Marys were pretty tasty as well.

Overall a fantastic experience at Sugarbacon Proper Kitchen, again.

We had not been to Sugar Bacon in almost 2 years due to a few terrible experiences. Well, I noticed the reviews were getting better and there was a new owner, so we decided to give it another try. Tonight was soooo much better! The food was great and the service was excellent. Chris was our server and was very helpful and had some great recommendations. We will definitely return!

From the moment we got there till we left the service was exceptional. The food was absolutely fantastic and well worth the drive from Downtown Dallas where I live. The Sugarbacon starter was a great appetizer and very tasty. We would have ordered another if we didn’t want to try some of the other dishes. I had a daily special steak salad and loved it! Steak was perfectly seasoned and the additional salad toppings delicious. My colleague had the roasted chicken and I know what my next meal will be there. I look forward to going back again and taking some friends from the city to experience a great restaurant.

Excellent service and great food options on the menu.
The off menu steak options are great but pricy. I gave a 4 stars since the entertainer on Saturday night was marginal at best. I’ve seen much better acts in previous visits.

Great service and wonderful atmosphere. I like the farm to table choices. Watch the prices on specials. We choose delicious options on specials that night and we're shoked at the cost. Little more than regular menus items. Definately will visit lagain.
