Fitting that Fair Park was on the past list too. Both are places that are 1/4 of the way to great.

Uh, I don't get it...don't see it and don't get it.
A bbq place doesn't constitute making the list..

It's a charming area and on upswing with new construction and some awesome restaurants. I went there yesterday and was pleasantly surprised. I would rather go to Legacy downtown if I 'm in Plano but yeah for a suburb, there is lots to do in Plano than any other suburb in DFW and then you can always cross border and head to Dallas or Addison. I repeat, for a suburb. You can't compare it with Dallas.

I need to go check it out. The last time I spent any significant time in downtown Plano was probably 20 years ago and it wasn't that great. I've passed by a few times recently, and have seen a lot of new stuff go up over the past few years, but it sounds like they've done a really good job in revitalizing the area.

I've been watching that area for 20 years mostly as I'd make my trips to the now departed Queen of Hearts across from Kelly's Eastside. I'm impressed with what they've done in recent years. No, it's not like other areas, but there's a vibe there that keeps the area appealing. There's definitely more than just a BBQ place there. And Plano has been very protective of the historical integrity of those buildings which I like. Makes the tenants get creative to make a cool space. And space doesn't remain empty long there. When Gregory's left for McKinney, Zanata moved in pretty quickly. Unfortunately the fire moved them to Rockwall. But now there's an attorney's office in there and they're loving the vibe and their neighbors. Same when other businesses leave.

I just wish the space on the corner where Queen of Hearts was for so long would bring the right tenant. I think it's on its 4th new business going in.

It all depends. I like HP, Preston Hollow and Uptown in DFW but if I've had stayed in Collin County and had a family to raise, that's where I would buy.
