Historic Downtown Carrollton is conveniently located near I35 and Beltline, just look for the painted old grain silo or the 3 Nations Brewery site. The City of Carrollton officials

Over the last 41 years, we were privileged to come to be considered an East Dallas institution. This is an honor we did not take for granted and we remain forever thankful to all our neighbors who became Pocket regulars, friends, and part of our extended family.
