11|17- Serving up Comfort Food with a Side of Hospitality
Earlier this year McKinney gained yet another great restaurant, filled with delicious Southern Comfort Food and owned by a sweet Texas couple just looking to provide great food and service. That restaurant is 11|17. Named after their son who was born in the 11th month (November) and their daughter who was born on the 17th (of September). 11|17 is a light, airy and friendly restaurant that is great for the whole family and is a wonderful addition to the McKinney restaurant scene.
On the menu you’ll find southern favs like fried pickles, onion rings, meatloaf, chicken fried chicken, burgers, mashed potatoes, corn on the cob and bananna pudding- just to name a few. The food is fresh and tastes great! Although I didn't try everything listed, I did start with the onion rings, fried pickles and even some fried jalapenos- spicy but delish! I then moved on to the Pimento Cheeseburger and it was so juicy and flavorful, I highly recommend. But 11|17 doesn’t stop at their food. The drink menu along with the specials are reason enough to stop in and stay awhile.
Cocktails like the 11|17 Punch and the Pineapple Martini are to die for and taste more like juice than an alcoholic beverage, and we all know that can get dangerous! Don’t discount the wine either, especially since every Wednesday bottles and glasses are 25% off. Talk about a cheap date or girls night out! Happy Hour is also Monday-Friday from 3-7pm and features $1 off wells, wine and draft beer.
But to top it all off is the fact that 11|17 has a large covered patio, which believe or not is hard to find in McKinney. The patio is a perfect spot to dine, complete with patio string lights and even cornhole around the side.
You can’t go wrong when dining (or drinking) at 11|17. The atmosphere lends itself to be a great date night with intimate dining by the bar or on the patio or a place where the whole family can gather and enjoy. And with a menu catered to us Texans how can you not find something you love? After all it’s called comfort food for a reason!
