Savor the taste of American cuisine at Nellie's Sports Bar. Located in the former Addison Scurlock Photography Studio, the restaurant honors Scurlock's commitment to the neighborhood and displays his photographs of the Washington DC's African-American elite and working class during the glory days of the historic U Street corridor.
Its menu features fries, nachos and quesadillas, as well as housemade guacamole. Some of its main entrées range from turkey, bleu or guacamole burgers, to grilled chicken and cheesesteak sandwiches. Visitors can also enjoy Nellie's cocktails such as the Hawaiian Punch and Russian Pear, in addition to Budweiser and other bottled beers. To finish the meal, patrons can indulge in the chocolate brownie and other homemade desserts.
Nellie's has games on TV, drag brunch, poker nights and karaoke among other events. Guests can also purchase the establishment's T-shirts and caps.
I've only been to one Drag Queen Brunch and that was at Nellie's. By far the show started way before the show started. It was a wonderful outing with the ladies.
This was a good time! The entertainment, service and food were fantastic! I would highly recommend this place!
My cousin birthday was December 28 th the day before she stated she didn't want to go because she read menu and thought she wasn't going to like the food and I told her it's like buffet but they serve breakfast and lunch so I was able to convince her but she enjoy herself from the moment we got there the atmosphere was great the ladies are pleasant ,friendly and , funny. I love all the performance but my 2 favorite is Beyoncé and Diana Ross I forgot their real name the show is all of that and more I'm planning all my girlfriends birthday or get together for here so see your real soon
I would recommend this as a brunch spot to try at least once for a fun girls day out.
I had a wonderful time and really enjoyed myself wih my 3LW sister's and celbrate my birhtday. I would to do this again.
This place is a girlfriend get away... If you want to just have fun with friends... this is the place to be
Fantastic place for a brunch with your best gal pals. The drag queens are very friendly and entertaining, and the food is fantastic. It does get very, very loud, not a relaxing place to catch up with an old friend, better for celebrating a birthday or bachelorette party/bridal shower.
My girlfriends and I had a blast. The food and entertainment was great.
I and 5 of my female girlfriends attended Nellie's Drag Brunch on Saturday, November 15, 2014, 12:30 p.m. show. First of all the LAVISH BRUNCH CUISINE was out of this world! Every bite, every taste and each and every crumb was absolutely outstanding!! (The cooks ROCK-OUT)!! Last but not at all the least - the drag professionals were out of control!!!! - each and every performance was so entertaining and the energy was on 100,000!!!!!!!!!! We had fun from the time we entered the building until it all ended and not to mention the hospitality from the staff was impeccable (great job)! I will be returning for the Drag Brunch again soon and very soon but until my feet meets Nellie's ground.........toodles professionals :)
First timer at this event. It was fantastic and I had a ball; the entertainment was exciting and the food was excellent!
Cant wait to go back....food was awesome...entertainment was awesome...overall great experience....no judgement zone!!!!
I love the food and the drinks were so gd and the peformances were excellent the Queens definitely made me feel like a Queen on my Day thank you for a wonderful time
I really enjoyed the atmosphere and the food was great. I would recommend this to my friends and family. The housewives of Benning road was a name given my Nay Nay and gave a friend in the group a nickname of Miguel. I loved the whole experience and will definitely be going back.
If I wanted to spend time in a sports bar, which I don't, then I likely would love Nellie's as there are multiple tvs blaring multiple games at full volume constantly. Pleasant young crowd, but I like somewhere with chairs and tables and able to hear my companions talk.
This was my second experience at Nellie's Drag Brunch, and again it was a very pleasant experience. Good food and a great show!
