Best time to visit
Sauce on the Square is a casual dining, moderate price Italian restaurant in downtown McKinney. It opened in 2007, and is one of many bars and restaurants around McKinney Square. Sauce is mainly a pizza and salad place and has a casual atmosphere.
Sauce has a long and narrow shape. There is outside covered seating in the entrance area. The main restaurant has booths and tables closer to the front with a bar and the kitchen in the back. A semi-private outdoors courtyard area near the kitchen seats about eight. A walkway connects Sauce to The Grotto Live, a live music bar.
The overall experience was average. The food was filling but bland and unmemorable. Cheese bread had too much cheese, too little tomato sauce and looked unappetizing. Sauce will let you mix and match pizzas. The smoked chicken/green pizza combination was too greasy, cooked too quickly and also tasted bland. It worked better with a heavy dose of crushed pepper. The pesto cream pasta scored a bit higher, not great but slightly better. It had too much pasta relative to veggies but it was cooked properly and the cream sauce was appetizing. Tiramisu salvaged the meal. It had a rich chocolate/coffee flavor and the portion was large. Chocolate bread pudding with ice cream had good potential on an initial taste but was too difficult to chew.
Sauce can draw a crowd, especially on weekends, so clearly people like it. Reservations are a good idea for weekend dinners and for larger parties. With mediocre food and relatively high prices, Sauce ranks lower on the list of restaurant options on the Square. While service and facilities were generally fine, a return visit is not on the agenda until the restaurant revisits the menu and the food.
