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

this was a big hot spot in the late 80’s and 90's. Sadly, not much has happened to improve it from those days. Few restaurants left, but not the destination it used to be. It is convenient to AA center, and probably worth a visit, but not much more than that.

Every since I was a little girl I've gone to the West end. I love it, it's fun it's great for all ages and there's a little bit of everything is close to the clubs and to the museum and theaters

About a decade ago this area had vibrancy on the weekends with tourists and locals but today it's just depressing. We got stuck here trying to kill time before the 6th Floor Museum. Tourists may enjoy some of the Western themed gift shops but other than that it's just a few random restaurants. The area is in desperate need of... More
