We stop by old downtown Plano every couple of weeks or so, mainly to eat at Lockhart barbecue (probably one of the best barbecue joints in the Dallas area). There are several other nice restaurants and bars along 15th street, making for a pleasant night out. And it is on the Dart line from downtown Dallas, so accessible for convention... More

Nice place to stroll other than the massive amount of traffic driving by. We thought the cigar bar was really nice.

We have eaten and shopped in downtown Plano. There are several restaurants available, a barber shop, and some other antique type shops. My favorite restaurant is Jorg's. Parking can be difficult during peak hours but some remote lots off the main street are just a short walk away.

Our family has been coming here since we moved to Plano in 1978. There has been many, many changes and each change keeps getting better and better. Plano is proud of this part of our city as this is where Plano originated from century ago. Original red brick store fronts and cobble streets takes you back to that time in... More

Lots of neat shops for all kinds of great finds. Hungry, don't worry there are several restaurants and bars close by to take care of any hungry moods, tired feet from walking or just a nice adult beverage to top off the excursion through the shops. Enjoy!

No matter which direction you enter historic downtown plano, its very appealing. The brick road gives it that old time feel and the small shops on the strip are great to go in.

Many small towns have done a better job of preserving their downtown centers. A city like Plano should be able to come up with a better plan. Many of the old buildings/spaces have been torn down to go with the retail below and housing above concept. Other than numerous eateries, which change frequently, there isn't much there.

Downtown Plano offers a wide variety of restaurants for an enjoyable dinning experience. Your choices include Mexican, German, BBQ, Sea Food, and traditional pub food. At times we go there in the evening without a particular destination in mine, stroll around the area, and choose a place to eat premised on what we like to eat and the availability of... More
