Balch Springs is a suburb of Dallas. It is small but close to a lot of restaurants and a large movie theater.

It has a small town vibe and it has good schools from the Mesquite school district. It has a big Walmart Super center.

I live in Balch Springs. I have to disagree with you. It's better than Dallas. You have not been there lately. It has never been ghetto
