3 McKinney Sports Bars
Ah, football season. The promise of cooler weather on the horizon combined with the weekend-long excuse to eat, drink and watch TV is so darn exciting!, And even more exciting is the fact that there are some great sports bars right here in McKinney that are ready to welcome you with a tall cold beer and multiple screens for the games. Some even have a patio for that cool fall weather that's right around the corner. We love these 3 locally owned options for cheering on your team this fall!
Henderson Kitchen and Tap
Known as the more family friendly version of the Dallas Henderson Taphouse, Henderson Kitchen and Tap opened its doors in McKinney in March 2017. In addition to the many drink specials offered, they also are one of the few places in town to get brick oven pizza. Henderson Kitchen and Tap has a great covered patio with 4 outdoor TVs, and surround sound for the game. They also host large watch parties every Saturday for OU and KSU groups.
Delaney's Irish Pub and Scratch Kitchen
Delaney's has been hosting McKinney sports fans since they opened in 2008. They have 28 flat screens to show every game, and each one is labeled so you can choose your table according to which matchup you want to watch. Some of the most popular menu items are their Fish and Chips and the Reuben sandwich (I had the reuben last month and it was delicious!). Delaney's also offers brunch starting at 9am on Saturdays and Sundays, and has a nice selection of drink specials. For any midwest transplants, Delaney's has a large Ohio State watch party every Saturday and the owner even donates a portion of the tab to an OSU scholarship. There are a large number of Chicago fans who frequent Delaney's as well (Daaaaa Bears!)
Dempsey's Place opened on the square in downtown McKinney in 2017. It offers something hard to find in McKinney - a large outdoor covered seating area with lots of TVs for all the big games. They have 16 TVs inside and 10 large screens outside. In addition to the plentiful outdoor seating, they also have fun games on their patio like pool tables, giant Jenga, and foosball. Dempsey's serves traditional bar fare, including burgers and wings, and has a wide selection of brews on tap and drink specials.
