Deep Ellum is one of our favorite Dallas neighborhoods for a number of different reasons. Along with being one of the more walkable districts in all of downtown Dallas, the dozens of restaurants, art galleries, entertainment venues, and locally owned boutique shops make it an attractive option for home buyers looking for an authentic urban setting with plenty of culture and diversity. The murals and public art work seen all throughout the neighborhood certainly give the Deep Ellum streets plenty of character, while the urban gardens and community parks provide a true sense of community that other downtown Dallas communities have a hard time matching.

From burger joints and BBQ to Tex-Mex and Asian food, Deep Ellum has quite the variety of restaurants, cafés, and eateries that are sure to impress even the most serious foodies around.
