Special Thanksgiving Hours at The Nodding Donkey

Thanksgiving Week is upon us – how are you spending the holiday?

After the turkey’s been eaten and you’ve had all the small talk you can handle with crazy Aunt Betty, head over to The Nodding Donkey for FOOTBALL and fun!


Special Thanksgiving Hours

The Nodding Donkey will open at 3:30pm on Thanksgiving Day, giving you and our staff plenty of time to spend with those you love. We’ll be open 3:30pm-Close, so there will be plenty of time to watch the biggest Thanksgiving Day games and catch up with friends old and new.


Watch Thanksgiving Day Football with Us!

The best sports bar in Dallas is the place to catch all your favorite Thanksgiving Day matchups. Here are a few of our favorites on the schedule:

·      3:30pm: Redskins vs. Cowboys – now you know why we’re opening at 3:30! Wouldn’t want you to miss any of the action on our 17+ big screen TVs because for once the Cowboys are favored big time and it should be a fun game to watch.

·      6:30pm: Texas A&M vs. LSU – Both teams have suffered huge wins and losses this season, but who will take the Turkey Day victory?



Food & Drink Specials!

And while watching the game, don’t forget about The Donkey’s amazing food and drink specials! Try some of our delicious small bites and pair them with draft beer, a cocktail, sipping whiskey, wine, and more. Our bar is fully stocked with just about anything you could have a hankering for. The Nodding Donkey prides itself on keeping local, craft beer on tap, and we rotate our favorites on a regular basis. Just ask the bartender what’s on tap, and you’re sure to find something to please.


Happy Thanksgiving from your friends at The Nodding Donkey!

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.
