Restaurant of the Week: Dakota

Dakota, a restaurant and bar located in the Entertainment District in Old Town Scottsdale, is known for its great nightlife, but many are unaware of the full lunch and dinner menu they offer.


Dakota has earned the reputation as one of the hottest nightlife spots in Scottsdale for their great hip-hop DJs, attractive crowd and the many bottles of champagne they pop every weekend. But did you know Dakota also serves up 10 different salads and perfectly cooked pan seared salmon?!

Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner 7 days a week, the Dakota menu is surprisingly diverse. The salads are great for those looking for something healthy, with both Kale and Quinoa salad options and our favorite, the Sonora Salad that is made with chicken breast, romaine, grilled corn, heirloom tomato, shallot, black beans, tossed in a chipotle ranch dressing and topped with tortilla strips.

Crispy Chicken Sandwich

Their braised short ribs is a popular dinner entree, cooked for 8 hours and brushed with an Asian BBQ sauce. Our more indulgent favorites were the Crispy Chicken Sandwich and the baked Macaroni & Cheese.

Macaroni & Cheese

Dakota serves breakfast 9-11am Monday – Friday, 9am-Noon Saturdays and Sundays and lunch and dinner menus are served until 9pm every night.
