Best Patios In McKinney, Texas

Enjoy the spring air with great food and drinks

It’s officially patio season for North Texas and as the weather continues to warm up, there’s no better way to spend your time than on one of McKinney’s many fantastic patios. 

Here’s some of the best:

The Stix Icehouse
301 Eldorado Pkwy #100, McKinney

The Stix Icehouse is all about great food, cold drinks and good times. Guests can participate in activities like corn hole, ping pong, disc golf, waffle ball, soccer and more. Live music on the porch every Thursday through Sunday makes evenings at The Stix the perfect way to unwind. 

Local Yocal
350 East Louisiana St., McKinney

Local Yocal is a laid-back locale with a long, off-the-street patio that lends itself to people-watching and relaxed conversation. Enjoy Texas-inspired fare such as Wagyu steaks and world-class barbecue.

Zin Zen Wine Bistro
6841 Virginia Pkwy., Ste. 104, McKinney

Okay, wine lovers — it’s your turn now. Zin Zen Wine Bistro offers more than just wine, giving patrons bites and brunch options for those alcohol-induced munchies. To complement your wine and cheese, the bar also has live music and a cozy outdoor patio. 

1910 N Stonebridge Dr., Ste. 180, McKinney

This family-owned restaurant has a generous patio overlooking Stonebridge Drive and great potential for sunset pics or morning bites. 

Sugarbacon Proper Kitchen
216 W. Virginia St., McKinney

Sugarbacon’s atmosphere falls somewhere between fine dining and sophisticated-casual. The popular patio is covered and can be closed in as needed when the Texas weather gets wonky. They also have misters and fans on particularly hot days. Sugarbacon’s “Modern American” food is date night-worthy, and they’re open for brunch on the weekends.

The Yard
107 S. Church St., McKinney

They say it’s what’s on the inside that counts, but at The Yard, it’s the outdoor space that everyone’s boasting about. The Yard’s casual cuisine, outdoor bar, patios, picnic tables, fire pits and ping pong tables encourage guests to stay awhile. If you're looking for fun this has got to be the best patio in McKinney.

301 N Custer Rd., Ste. 180, McKinney

The name implies wine bar, but Uncork’d offers craft beers, specialty cocktails and a menu that will make your mouth water. Create your own flatbread, try the stuffed pork chop, or just come for some wine on tap.

Rick’s Chophouse
107 N. Kentucky St., McKinney

Rick’s Chophouse has any type of food you’re looking for, especially if you’re a meat lover. The restaurant takes your classic steakhouse and sticks it into the historic Grand Hotel & Ballroom, which adds loads of character to the restaurant’s ambiance.

Cristina’s Fine Mexican
2811 Craig Drive #110, McKinney

Around here, fresh and authentic Mexican food is a big deal, and you’ll find some of the best at Cristina’s Fine Mexican. The food is inspired by the unique flavors and essence of Central Mexico. While most of Cristina’s Dallas-area locations have patios, McKinney is fortunate to have one with a covering and ceiling fans-to-boot.
