Noon Game? Join us for Dallas Brunch!


So your team is playing at noon. Perfect! It’s a great excuse to join us for the best brunch in Uptown Dallas! The Nodding Donkey’s brunch menu is centered on simple dishes cooked well, with quality ingredients and unique flavors you can taste. Everything has a little Texican flare to it because who in Dallas doesn’t love great Mexican food?!
