    Good for restaurants
    We went to the Deep Ellum area for lunch after visiting the 6th Floor Museum in downtown. Deep Ellum has a much better variety of local restaurants. We chose Terry Black's and enjoyed our meal. Take note that parking is limited but some restaurants have lots.

    One of the COOLEST Neighborhoods in Dalls!
    In a 4 night stay in Dallas and I was staying near the convention center, I took a short ride to this fun and eclectic neighborhood. Great restaurants, bars, live music, coffee shops and and amazing Pie shoppe! You wont regret visiting this area

    A hip and funky district in Dallas.
    Walked around the Deep Ellum district of Dallas when exploring the city. It has a hip feel and I loved all the street art everywhere, including the Robot Sculptures. Some funky places to eat, drink and shop too. The Texas BBQ place, Pecan Lodge, is well worth a visit for some authentic, delicious BBQ.

After eating at Twisted Root Burger in Deep Ellum, I walked around the area for a bit to explore. However, based on how I was feeling, it was too cold and windy and not a lot going on in late October, so I requested an Uber to go back to the hotel.

This was a nice hang out spot in the past. There was so many options when it came to rock bars and venues. Now it’s a hipster place with hip hop bars and high school kids running around. Not the same at all and has definitely changed my outlook about it. I will not be returning sadly because I use to enjoy deep ellum. Hopefully they bring back rock bars and it’s venues.

Lot of things to do here. We visited tiki loco and ate some amazing vegan food. They have many arcades and photo booths too. We also loved the artwork on the walls

Deep Ellum (Deep Elm)

Dallas

Worst city in Texas so far.

What a dump… after paying 10 dollars to park in a unguarded I fenced parking lot. You are surrounded by trash, broken bottles, and drug addicts you find overpriced thrift stores and restaurants. Walked back to my car a homeless drug addict jump out from behind a building hit me and started a calling me and my family the N word and telling me he was going to kill me in front of my family while trying to strike me. So while trying to walk away he gave chase to my children before three cops showed up to detain him. This was all before 1 in the afternoon 0-10 never visit if you can help it.
