A great place

It was a great place to shop and many restaurants to choose from. It was nice to have a one place stop to visit a few shops in one area.

There are some pretty cool places in the West End but a lot of places close early or are closed on the weekend. We checked this out while we were in downtown and there are still some things to see. A friend of mine who lives in nearby Plano says the West End just isn't what it used to be.

In a modern city full of tall buildings and freeways visiting WE is a nice experience and let us remember how Dallas use to be. I recommend to find in advance where to park

West End is a great place to wander around and enjoy people watching, soak up the Texas charm, find a place to eat, and shop at specialty stores.

Everywhere you look, there is a Restaurant to please anyone's taste and/or pocketbook. You can dress 'up' or dress 'down'....the choice is yours. Isn't that what life's all about?

I wandered around in this area for a day, stopping in at little eateries (see separate reviews) and looking in the stores. I also went and watched fools try to die by taking their pictures on the cross marking where Kennedy died. It's not a quiet street these fools literally dodge into traffic to snap a picture. Folks are friendly... More

We ate at the Y.O.Ranch Restaurant and loved it. We also went on the carriage ride around downtown and it was lovely.

While in Dallas for a week for meetings stayed in the Fairmont. We walked down to the West End Historic several times. Ate in four different restaurants on Market Street. Enjoyed the buildings, history and most of all people watching. If in Dallas do visit this part of town.

The historical society of Dallas is rather weak. They've made little effort to preserve the historic architecture of the city. That is what makes the historic West End so important. Industrial buildings that once supported the booming railroad business of Dallas have been converted to commercial spaces (primarily restaurants). If you want a taste of Dallas' past, you need to...

I thought I was all set with my google earth research. I had found a few restaurants that looked promising, but alas, even the national mexican fresh chain I visited had slow employees, was not inside, and dirty. Add to that a panhandler hustling us while we tried to sit streetside to eat when it was just me and my... More
