Shopping, Dining and Lodging


Midlothian’s growth is most noticeable by the development in the retail/restaurant sector. Starting with only a handful of independent restaurants and shops, Midlothian has grown in the last few years to include an assortment of food and retail establishments that provide a wide variety of choices to Midlothian.


Retail and the consumer services industry are also thriving in Midlothian. In recent years, several smaller, nationally recognized retail establishments have opened franchises in Midlothian. These include Ace Hardware, Blockbuster, CVS, Dollar General, NAPA Auto Parts and Walgreens. Now, with the opening of the Wal-Mart Supercenter and the development of Midlothian Crossing at the intersection of U.S. Hwy 287 and Main Street, retail is beginning to boom in that area. Since Wal-Mart opened, Starbucks has arrived along with Game Stop and the Snap! Fitness Center.

The completion of the U.S. 287 Bypass, Navarro College, two medical centers and the announcement of a new hotel have caused many retail site locators to inquire about Midlothian and its developments, such as Hunters’ Glen, MidTowne, Silken Crossing and Walnut Grove Centre. The residents of Midlothian will have a number of options for shopping and dining in the near future.


From McDonald’s and Taco Bell to Caroline’s and Villa Italiana, Midlothian has the dining experience your taste buds are craving. Midlothian restaurant options include Mexican cuisine, Chinese food, sandwich delis and some of the best barbeque around.

Need catering services? Let Busy B’s or Villa Italiana do the work for you. Many of the local independent restaurants also offer professional catering services and are accepted by the Midlothian Conference Center. Florists and party rentals are also available in Midlothian. Plans for your special occasion or regional meeting will go smoothly with the options and amenities offered.


Midlothian has a number of hotel options within a close proximity. The Best Western, located in Midlothian at U.S. Hwy 67 and Main Street, is eager to provide accommodations for weary travelers. Other hotels are also located just a short drive away in neighboring Waxahachie and Mansfield.
