If you're in West Texas and you hear someone talking about a nodding donkey, it's probably just an oil-worker talking about oil well pumpjacks. Around Dallas, however, if you overhear some talk of The Nodding Donkey, the folks mean a certain neighborhood saloon located in Uptown across Thomas Avenue from Londoner. Opened fall 2010, the bar features several Texas-size TVs perfect for catching a game, and even has a 3-D screen with several pairs of glasses. The menu features mostly Southern-style food ranging from burgers and sandwiches to Frito pie and brisket chili with jalapeño cornbread, as well as "Texican" items like tacos, flautas and chimichangas.
