Plan Your Trip To Central Dallas

Deep Ellum

A neon sign beckons as you drive down Good Latimer Expressway, glowing bright with Deep Ellum Texas and an arrow pointing to a former warehouse district. There you'll find the perfect mix of history and contemporary cool.

Food & Drink

Monkey King Noodle Company

Take a bite of street Asian plates as you explore the art-filled district. The popular spot is currently a food stand but will soon open a sit-down restaurant to enjoy your noodles.

Serious Pizza

Come with an appetite – the individual slices are big enough to satisfy even the hungriest visitor.

Amsterdam Falafelshop

Take your pick of a bowl, sandwich or double-fried fries before digging into the toppings bar to help yourself to everything and anything. Vegans, vegetarians and gluten-free foodies, this is your spot!

Anvil Pub

With happy hour specials four nights a week, Anvil Pub will quickly become one of your Deep Ellum favorites. And the weekend brunch is a see-it-to-believe it – think 32 oz. brunch cocktails complete with your pick of mini-sized brunch favorites as your toppings.

Local

Upscale dining inside a landmarked building that once housed the oldest standing hotel in Dallas. Go for the chef's seven-course meal with complimenting wine.

Armoury DE

Start with the langos, a traditional Hungarian flat bread, before digging into the No Reggie, a chipotle and citrus brined chicken sandwich topped with avocado and baby spinach. Live music lovers will delight in their weekly band line up.    

Big Guy's Chicken & Rice

The no-frills bowls, filled to the brim with rice, salad and your choice of a lamb/beef combo, chicken or a mix of all three, will leave you happily full. Come by after a late night in Deep Ellum – the Elm Street staple is open until 4 am Thursday-Sunday.

Brick & Bones

Fried chicken and cocktails in one place? Count us in. Brick & Bones is only open for dinner, so head in after exploring the numerous art murals throughout the neighborhood.

Filament

A newer addition to the area, Filament brings a refined Southern-style cuisine thanks to James Beard Foundation Award semifinalist Chef Matt McAllister.

Double Wide

This trailer park-themed watering hole pours strong drinks for their live music sessions and karaoke nights.
