Established in 2008, Delaney’s Irish Pub & Scratch Kitchen is a Stonebridge community mainstay. Known for its hefty Tex-Irish menu — think chicken-fried steak and bangers & mash — and a thirst-quenching wall of 45 beers on tap, Delaney’s is how McKinney does Dublin.
Twenty-eight flat screens, three large-screen projectors and two fully stocked bars, Delaney’s offers the ultimate sports-watching experience. And, for interactive entertainment, there are pool tables, video games, a photo booth for super-great selfies and amazing, local bands on the weekends.
As much as Delaney’s serves up excitement, what truly keeps the crowd coming back is the food. Made-from-scratch recipes are the order of the day. “Our food is homey, it’s from the heart,” says Chef. “Timing is everything in our kitchen. Short cuts and super-quick cooking leaves no room for passion.”
The chicken pot pie is cooked low and slow. The steak and mushroom plate is a six-hour process. Everything is prepared by hand and the only thing frozen coming out of the Delaney’s kitchen is the ice cream.
About Owner Brett Bourgeois
From police officer to pub owner, Delaney’s Irish Pub & Scratch Kitchen owner Brett Bourgeois is all about keeping the peace and the food flowing.
On October 1, 2015, Bourgeois, a reserve officer and McKinney resident, became the newest owner of the area’s most popular pub.
“I love Delaney’s. I love the idea of serving made-from-scratch meals and great beverages to our neighbors,” says the 11-year restaurant-industry vet. “I’m raising my baby girl in this community, it’s incredibly important to me to be an active participant in the world in which she grows.”
"Delaney's is, without a doubt, the best place to meet up with other sports fans and cheer our teams to victory."
