The Perfect Burger is at The Nodding Donkey

At The Nodding Donkey Kitchen – located at the corner of Greenville Ave. and SMU Blvd. in Dallas, Texas – we know a thing or two about creating the perfect burger or sandwich. Our menu has many mouth-watering choices, or you are welcome to create your own. Just follow these steps to creating the perfect burger:

1.    Choose Your Meat: The Nodding Donkey uses only the freshest, 100% natural meats in our hamburgers. You can choose between our traditional angus beef patty, lean chicken breast, turkey patty, or a bison patty. Four great choices; you really can’t go wrong!

2.    Choose Your Fixins: Reference our menu for our tried and true combinations, or make it your own. Try our Saloon Burger complete with smoked onions, pepper jack cheese, and our homemade chipotle mayo. Or maybe the BBQ Blue Cheese Burger is more your style – crispy fried onions, crumbly blue cheese, and our top secret BBQ sauce. Want to try something more adventurous? Then give our Frito Cowboy a try. It’s Fritos, chili, and shredded cheddar cheese all on top of an amazing burger patty. All are delicious.

3.    Choose a Side: Lots of options for sides at the best sports bar in Dallas, including classic French fries, sweet potato fries, a cup of soup, salad, cup of black beans, hummus, fruit, coleslaw, chipotle potato salad, and more.

And once you’ve got your burger all figured out, don’t forget to add the perfect beverage to accompany your meal! Every day of the week, The Nodding Donkey is running Dallas’s best drink specials! Whether you prefer wine, beer, or cocktails, The Nodding Donkey Greenville Ave. has something for everyone.

The Nodding Donkey Gives Back

Being the best sports bar in Dallas is not just about the food, drink specials, and the atmosphere. It’s also about giving back to the community that treats us so well!

The Nodding Donkey Greenville Ave. is proud to support many charities that benefit those less fortunate than ourselves. It’s part of our mission to be the best Dallas restaurant and bar. We love making serving others fun and rewarding for all, and so we try to host various events throughout the year to benefit others.

During the Christmas season, we helped collect toys for children who may otherwise have a grim Christmas by partnering with Toys for Tots as a drop location. Earlier this month, many of you came out to help us feed the homeless as we partnered with TangoTab. Thanks to your support, we were able to feed over 5,000 homeless people in our Dallas community! Wow!

Over 5,000 meals prepared for the homeless! Thank you to all who came out to help!
