This is a wonderful area of Dallas with many unique restaurants and shops. There are a few chains here, but overall some great dinning. Parking can be a bit difficult at times, but overall worth it! Close to downtown and Uptown area!

For three or four blocks on either side of Central Express on Knox (west side) and Henderson (east side) streets. Great people watching along the Katy Trail which intersects Knox St. One of our favorite brunch places - Toulouse Cafe is on Knox at Katy Trail and our favorite restaurant in Dallas - Abacus - is just a block south...

We enjoyed wandering through the area and checking out all of the stores and restaurants. Many interesting boutiques were present, as were other known decorating and design retailers. Great restaurants nearby as well.

An area of Dallas with restaurants and shops. A great area to walk around, explore the shops, have a drink and enjoy the time. Check out the soda fountain at the pharmacy. You do not see many now days!

The Knox side is a pretty village like area with restaurants and a great frozen custard place that's been there forever. The Henderson side has several outdoor patio restaurants that are more separated and less conducive to walking like the Knox side. Both sides have a laid back vibe.

For out of towners, this area is very confusing. Parking is very limited. Not sure I would come back and try to figure this out. It is definitely for the younger generation.

All kinds of shopping and food options in this neighborhood. Note that Knox is on the western side of 75 and Henderson is on the eastern side. Food options range from inexpensive to very high end. This is a popular place to hang out. Henderson spreads from the edge of McMillan and Henderson to 75, whereas Knox is more compact... More
