Hi all- My hubby and I are moving to the area in the next few months. Just curious about a few things.

First, we are looking at renting a house in the Grauwyler/Irving Heights/Beverly Oaks area. My husband drove the area and said it was pretty decent for our price range of $1000/month (I know that's not alot). Anyway, any feedback on this area would be appreciated. BTW- we have no kids, just dogs. And the commute time for him is good (Love Field).

Second, what are the major grocery stores in the area? We're from Colorado and shopped at King Soopers (owned by Kroger) and Super Target (Colorado has tons of Super Targets!). We loved both because they had good produce, bakery and deli areas. We did not go to Albertson's, they were all run down and smelled nasty.

Lastly, we enjoy casual dining. Any "must haves"? We love mexican, asian... well pretty much everything.

We are getting excited about our new adventure and looking forward to exploring our new home!

Sorry, not that familiar with the Irving Heights area of Irving, but all of the stores you mentioned, plus a slew of many more, are definitely within a short driving distance from there.

See the list to all of the DFW groceries
here under Farmers Markets & Groceries, click on the store's link to check for the closest location.

Welcome to Texas!

I have a colleague that his wife insisted she wanted to live in a mixed culture area and
does live in that area.

That has a heavy hispanic, old time residents, gentrified area as some would define it.
The area is mixed residence.
Some older nice homes mixed in with the lower income apartments/condos residents/
older small framed home, as well as some nice homes right in the middle of them all.

Grocery Stores:
The closest Walmart is a couple of miles down on 183 past beltliine.
There is a super Walmart and SAM's Club at Market Place and 635.
There is a Sam's Cub on Loop 12 and NorthWest Hwy, about 6 miles north of your new location.

I believe I seen a Kroger on Story Road.

There is super Target on the north side of beltline and 183. There is a Sack and Save around/on 183 and Story.

There is a FIESTA on Irving Blvd at Story.
(take Irving Heights south to Irving blvd, one or two blocks on the right.)

Brazilian style restaraunt
Home Page

Freds Barbeque on Story and East Irving Blvd

Nice Oriental Buffet on 635 and Macarthur
(Many restaurants by the Sams and Walmart along 635)

Restaurant row is now at Northwest Highway and Loop 12 about four or five miles north of you.
You will find everything from Pappas steakHouse to Chili's, PappaDeaux's, Pappasitos, to Mercado Juarez, and
of course your McDonalds and Wendy's too.
