Thanksgiving Hours at The Nodding Donkey

Can you believe that Thanksgiving is now ONE WEEK AWAY! Turkey, pie, football, oh my!

The Nodding Donkey would love to be a part of your Thanksgiving celebration. Whether you come by during the week before, after you celebrate with your family on Thanksgiving Day, or on the weekend to catch some football, we’d love to have you stop in!

Thanksgiving Day - Open 5pm-Close

The Nodding Donkey will open late on Thanksgiving Day, giving you (and our employees) time to celebrate with family, then a chance to escape over to the Donkey to celebrate and watch football afterwards.

Week of November 22 – Open 11am-Midnight

Many folks are off work the days leading up to Thanksgiving – or maybe you’re on Fall Break from school and just don’t want to go home yet. Pop into the Donkey for daily Dallas drink specials, lunch specials, and delicious food. Not to mention, our patio is always open for games and people watching.

November 27 – 29 – Open 11am-2am (closed at 11pm on Sunday)

Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and the crazy shopping weekend in between these days give you lots of reasons to be out and about. After your shopping is done and you are officially exhausted, come over to The Nodding Donkey Uptown for drinks and appetizers to get your mind off the madness. Or are you a big football fan? Because as the best sports bar in Dallas, we’ll be airing all the big football showdowns that weekend. And there are a lot! Baylor vs. TCU, Oklahoma vs. Oklahoma State, Alabama vs. Auburn, Texas A&M vs. LSU, SMU vs. Memphis, and more. Get here early to get the best seats, but there really isn’t a bad seat in the house with big screen TVs all over the Donkey.

Make a new tradition and join us at The Nodding Donkey during your Thanksgiving Holiday! Lunch, dinner, and an amazing weekend brunch are all waiting for you.
