North Lamar Reviews

Since I moved from Dallas, Texas and came back to my hometown Ive been living by North Lamar for about 7 years. It's a nice neighborhood but a well populated neighborhood. It's always busy around 3:00 p.m and 5:00 p.m, my family has gotten used to eat as years pass. We have everything we need in this neighborhood we have the grocery store (HEB), restaurants, and fast food places.

I love it here, everything is close to North Lamar and is a straight shot to Downtown Austin. I live in an apartment complex that is beautiful. like I said, close to everything. Walmart, Golds gym, Lowes, HEB, Home Depot, McDonald, and Starbucks all close.
It is a nice place to live, I grew up here and had the best childhood any children could ask for. I'm glad my parents chose this place for us.
