This part of town feels unlike any other part of Dallas. If you're looking for a change of pace & scene, definitely come here. There's plenty of bars, shopping & restaurants here. I'd definitely recommend Glazed Donut Works if you're in the mood for a late night snack.

This place is pretty cool. with the new love of the 70's and our old life. The food here can be choked down with a beer. Nothing special during my experience. I have tasted for the past six years. I can only say burnt toast is still Burt toast. If yo want good food go to the westend about 3... More

I visited during the day with my teen daughter and wished we could have been their at night to see all of the neon signs lit up and the establishments full of patrons. Old buildings with pleaseing architectural elements to bring you joy. A creative few blocks filled with fun to be had!

so impressed with this part of Dallas -- the music and food of Deep Ellum is quite awesome. The ART along the DART train lane only enhances the city. From out of town, the entire city spends the time on wall art, sculpture, flowers, and visual appeal.

If was going to move to Dallas, this is where I'd like to live, few chains lots of independent shops, restaurants and bars. Jump on the local train and have a walk round.

Deep Ellum is full of history and has a very diverse group of patrons. From the Pecan Lodge which always has a line down the street to Serious Pizza with their mega huge pizza. It's a great place to just hang out. Many evening you'll find local bars with local bands just playing the music that gets a crowd to... More

I heard a lot about Deep Ellum as a1980's teen in Fort Worth and only recently have I made the effort to visit. I don't believe I fit the Deep Ellum demographic as I don't drink alcohol, I don't stay out much past 10pm on a weeknight, I don't have tats or piercings and I'm just kind of nerdy, overall....

If you visit Dallas, visit Deep Ellum, it's fun and different. You'll find some very awesome restaurants and shops, most are open during the day. At night all the Bars and Venue's open, you'll find live music pretty much everywhere. Some of my favorite eats: Angry Dog, Pepe and Mito's, Pecan Lodge, Serious Pizza and Cafe Brazil .. Some of...
