Nellie’s Restaurant opens North SIde location in Evansville

EVANSVILLE − The greatly anticipated Nellie’s North, the second location of Newburgh-based Nellie’s Restaurant, has opened on Evansville’s North First Avenue in the former Wolf’s Bar-B-Q location. Here is what you need to know.  

What is Nellie’s?

Nellie’s Restaurant in Newburgh was opened in 2017 by Renee and Jose Jimenez. The couple are originally from Chicago, and opened Nellie’s with a menu of local favorites with some Chicago flair and a few Mexican-inspired dishes to freshen it up.

The breakfast and lunch restaurant was an instant hit, especially for the large and varied breakfast menu, which is served all day. In 2019, Nellie’s opened for dinner.

Cars fill the parking lot at lunchtime at the new Nellie's North on Wednesday, June 26, 2024.

Why the new spot?

Well, if you have a great concept that stays busy, why not expand? Renee said she and Jose had recently started looking around for a possible second location, and when they visited the Wolf’s building she realized how many possibilities the large size and multiple kitchen areas would bring.
