Dallas/Oak Cliff

Oak Cliff is a neighborhood in Dallas, Texas, United States. The area has retained a distinct neighborhood identity as one of "Dallas' older, established neighborhoods", and is often called "The Cliff." It was a separate town up until 1903, when it was annexed by Dallas.


Oak Cliff has turn of the century and mid-20th century housing, many parks and remarkably close proximity to the central business district of downtown Dallas without the heavy vehicular traffic or higher cost of housing commonly associated with Dallas' northern neighborhoods.

The current boundaries of Oak Cliff are roughly Interstate 30 and the Trinity River on the north, Interstate 35E on the east, Camp Wisdom Road on the south, and Cockrell Hill Road on the west. In practice nearly every neighborhood south of the Trinity River (excluding west Dallas) is called Oak Cliff, though much of it was never part of the original town. For example, the South Oak Cliff neighborhood which generally includes neighborhoods south of Illinois Avenue, was never part of the original town of Oak Cliff, just as the Arcadia Park area was once its own municipality.

Get in

From Downtown Dallas -- Take either 45 or 35E South and cross the Trinity River. (Both freeways actual cross the River automatically.)





A combination of both rustic and lush in everything from the menu to the décor. Tillman's is a good-time destination, whether it's for a quick drink, a casual dinner, or a special occasion.
