"Close to Downtown Dallas with Affordable Housing"

The Los Altos neighborhood of West Dallas has a mix of ethnic groups, and is a blending pot of Asian, white, black, and Hispanic people. It is a mix of older modest family homes with many newer brick homes going up in the last few years. It is one of the few places in the city of Dallas where you can buy a 3-bedroom home for under $100,000.

On the east side of the neighborhood, Winnetka Park is a place for sports and children to play. There are several excellent family restaurants on the edge of the neighborhood that are well worth checking out. The Taqueria Soto has great authentic Mexican food as does the Juan Colorado Restaurant. It's only minutes to Downtown Dallas and the area is well served by the Dallas Area Rapid Transit system with bus and rail service available. There are a few friendly neighbors here and it helps greatly if you can speak Spanish as a number of residents only speak their native tongue.

This is a place for people looking for a bargain on a home, although the crime rates for this neighborhood have been higher than the overall average for the city of Dallas.
  • close to Downtown Dallas
  • affordable housing
  • heavy traffic on adjacent roads during rush hour
  • rising crime rates over the past two decades
  • some smog and air quality problems during the summer months
