“Old Downtown Carrollton”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

Very quaint and friendly. Nice shops and restaurants. Babes Restaurant is a must. The old town square is a nice place to walk. It has a gazebo in the middle of the square.

“Best old type downtown area in Dallas area”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

If you are looking for old time town square this is it. Great restaurants, shops, salons and more. You can't go wrong.

“Seriously,Nothing Here”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Downtown Carrollton amounts to about one square block.There are some newer apartments, a gazebo and a handful of knickknack shops and restaurants. The restaurants are nice destinations but the "downtown" isn't worth a trip.

“Average Old Downtown”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Carrollton Town Square is definitely the neatest and most interesting part of Carrollton, TX but nothing one needs to go out of one's way for either. It features a number of antique and other knick knack stores as well as a few restaurants. Personal favorite is Babe's with the best-ever mashed potatoes. It is worth visiting mostly when there is a festival going on such as the Carrollton Switchyard Festival in the fall. Then there will be live music, food and some other entertainment, and the temperatures are usually more bearable than in the summer.

It can be conveniently reached by DART (Dallas Area Rapid Transportation) - the train station is just across the street from the square, which is a definite plus because parking is limited down there.
