Where to Dine in Lake Highlands – Pt 1

VG Doubleby Joey Stewart

While much of Dallas lies flat, the northeast Dallas collection of subdivisions known as Lake Highlands offers a unexpected setting of hills, valleys, woods and streams. Most of the area is served by the Richardson Independent School District, which makes it an enticing place to live for parents who are looking for an alternative to DISD or would rather not pay to send their little ones to private schools.

However, within the LH borders it can be a challenge to find restaurants offering the variety of choices of the surrounding areas. Sure, one can head a few miles west to Preston Hollow, south to Casa Linda, or directly north of 635 for a plethora of options, but for those who wish to stay within Lake Highlands “proper,” we’ve compiled a short list for you to enjoy. Some of you may already be in the know, but we bet there are a few here you have never thought to try. We will spotlight these a few at a time, and here are today’s picks.
