The Nodding Donkey Uptown
Dallas, TX 75204
Dallas Observer's Description
If you're in West Texas and you hear someone talking about a nodding donkey, it's probably just an oil-worker talking about oil well pumpjacks. Around Dallas, however, if you overhear some talk of The Nodding Donkey, the folks mean a certain neighborhood saloon located in Uptown across Thomas Avenue from Londoner. Opened fall 2010, the bar features several Texas-size TVs perfect for catching a game, and even has a 3-D screen with several pairs of glasses. The menu features mostly Southern-style food ranging from burgers and sandwiches to Frito pie and brisket chili with jalapeño cornbread, as well as "Texican" items like tacos, flautas and chimichangas.
Tips from foursquare
This open-air sports bar's got 18 monster flat screens that blast games to every nook. Bonus: All hooch comes with a chilled custom-handled canning jar.
The bartenders Eddie and Leigh Ann are great and will take care of you!
Cool open air environment, good service at the bar, dive feel with all the up-town frill the "snooties" love, too.
Try a donkey punch
Finally learned what a nodding donkey is. Oops.
