New Name. Same Great Neighborhood Restaurant & Bar.

You may or may not have noticed, but things look a little different around here.

Street construction has cleared up. New businesses have sprung up. Foot traffic is higher than ever. The city is even putting forth a $3 million bond to fund a renovation of the area’s streetscape.

This is all good news to local small business owners who have struggled over the last decade as crime rates in the area grew and regulations stunted growth.

Yes, things are on the upswing in the Greenville area, and at The Nodding Donkey we’re excited and proud to be a part of the revitalization. In order to show our support for the area, we’ve chosen to make a slight name change, changing our name from The Nodding Donkey – SMU Blvd. to The Nodding Donkey – Greenville.

And while our name has changed, we’re still the same neighborhood restaurant and bar you love:

·         Location: no, we haven’t changed locations! We’re still on the corner of Greenville Ave. and SMU Blvd, with close proximity to SMU and other Dallas hot spots. So the next time the big game is on, come join us. We’ll be airing SMU Mustangs football and all your favorite Big 12 and SEC games each Saturday this Fall. Valet parking is always available after 4pm and we’ll even give free drink tokens to anyone who shows a current valet ticket.

·         Food: still as delicious as ever. Mouthwatering burgers, fresh pizzas (now available with gluten free crust!), salads, sandwiches, all created with a unique Texan flare.

·         Fun: there is always something happening at The Nodding Donkey. Live music every Friday night, trivia game nights, and adult sized cornhole and Jenga, just to name a few of the exciting things we’ve got lined up for you. Oh – and did we mention we were voted the best sports bar by D Magazine readers?!

So if you haven’t visited the Greenville area in awhile, pop into The Nodding Donkey for a drink and then show some of our other local businesses some love!
