A wonderful taste of McKinney history! I went with my three friends and we had a great time with Tall Paul in downtown McKinney. All four of us have lived in McKinney for over 10 years, and even as long time residents of McKinney we learned so much about our wonderful city. I'll admit, even though we come to the square often, there were places I had never been to so it was great to try something new. We frequent Cadillac Pizza but had never tried their Goat and Fig pizza, and will definitely be ordering it again. I have to say my favorite stop on the tour was Butcher Board- another one we have often thought of trying, but have never stopped in before. The sandwich at Butcher Board was fantastic and I really enjoyed hearing all about the care and quality that goes into their food. Essentialz is a new addition to McKinney and funnily enough the owner used to teach Chemistry at our alma mater. The Pantry is a McKinney staple and I think it's great that this tour is able to incorporate both the new businesses and the long-standing businesses on the square.
Paul put up with all my questions throughout the tour lol and was exceptionally informative. If you are a history buff, this tour is for you! You will hear all about the little quirks in McKinney's history (like why there is a law against bringing elephants to the square) and how the city came to be a bright spot for us in recent years. It was supposed to rain the day of our tour, so we did need to plan accordingly, and it ended up being quite hot/humid (welcome to Texas). There was water provided at each stop and plenty of time for restroom breaks as well.
Thanks to Paul for a great Sunday tour for some McKinney residents! - Sam D.
Our daughter got us this tour as a Christmas present. We were absolutely delighted with our tour today. The history lessons were as informative as the food was delicious. Never knew Frank and Jesse James used to hang out so close to our house. Never knew we had Small Door #35 in McKinney. So. Much. History. In. Such. A. Great. Package.
Absolutely on our list of things to do again. We can't wait to send our kids and their spouses on this tour (while we stay home and watch the grandkids). Tall Paul is a super guy with a winning way about him. - Joe S.
