Downtown Richardson may not have much to offer, although there are scattered throughout the downtown several restaurants, many of which are Chinese. I note from other reviews that the actual downtown may not be all that adventurous. I had reviewed downtown in 2012 thus this is an update I should have made at that time that included pictures.

Simply an old, neglected trashy area . Only survival is the heavy traffic from 75 toward east of beltline. Actually the whole area stinks and needs to be avoided.

I hope to see the area encouraged by our City Council. Very few businesses survive for long on the two block strip on Main Street.....mostly repair stores, bail bonds, hookah bars, vacuums for sale.

I live here and the photo doesn't look current. The area has been over run by hookah bars in recent years.

Richardson is a very good city in the Dallas area. We like to go there and spend a day because it is safer then Dallas downtown. It is a family friendly city. Love to go back again

I traveled to the area and did not have my camera, thus I have to return and make pictures so I can post them on this site. Just North of downtown Richardson and the main fire station (Greenville Avenue) there is a real Chinatown. Large entrance signs have now been built at the edge of the large parking lot. These...

I drive through this area of Richardson every day. There are 2 or three blocks of old resturants and young drunks. I am waiting for the area to be repurposed and be made a night spot due to the proximty of DART.

I like it because there are a ton of ethnic restaurants and you really get a feel of the old town. A real homey feel, before all the new construction and urban sprawl.
