Burgers & Football: Saturdays at The Nodding Donkey!

Opening weekend for college football was a doozie, wasn’t it?!


Texas lost.

Baylor lost.

We’re not even going to talk about what happened to Texas A&M.


It wasn’t a great first week for the great State of Texas, but good news: THERE’S PLENTY OF FOOTBALL LEFT! And it can only go up from here, right?!


The Nodding Donkey Opens at 10:30am on Saturdays for College Football!

Join The Nodding Donkey every Saturday this Fall for college football in Dallas! We’ll have all the games from all the teams, so you won’t miss your favorite. And with over 17 big screen TVs throughout our Dallas restaurant and bar, there really isn’t a bad seat in the house. Sit outside and enjoy some lawn games while you watch, or enjoy a cozy seat at the bar inside. Your choice! Lots of options and lots of fun.


Burgers + Football = Good Times

Forget about heating up your grill. Grab the gang and head to The Nodding Donkey for the best burgers in Dallas! Get our classic Saloon Burger with chipotle mayo, smoked onions, and pepper jack cheese. Or maybe you’d like to try our personal favorite, the Bacon Blue Cheese Burger. Loaded with crispy fried onions, blue cheese crumbles, and of course, bacon, it’s pretty close to burger perfection. Burgers are always made to order, so be sure to tell your server what you like, and we’ll make it just for you.


Dallas Drink Specials!

The Donkey is not only the best place in Dallas to watch college football, but it’s also the best place for Dallas drink specials! Enjoy one of the many great craft beer on tap, everything from local brews to mainstream favorites. Don’t forget about our full menu of craft cocktails, shots, wine, and more.


Join us this weekend at The Nodding Donkey as we usher in a new season of college football! Doors open at 10:30am, and we’ll be here all day to rejoice in the win or drown our sorrows in a pitcher of Donkey Punch.
