According to Gallup, 1 in 5 Americans include gluten free foods in their diet. Some do it to eat a more health-conscience diet; others do it because they have Celiac and it’s a necessity. Either way, gluten free eating is on the rise – and not going anywhere anytime soon.
The Nodding Donkey knows what a pain it can be to go to a Dallas restaurant and bar and not have anything gluten free on the menu. So we’re made it easy for you. Across various categories on the menu you can find something delicious to eat, all while avoiding that disruptive gluten:
Appetizers: Homemade Jalapeno Skins
What’s not to love about deep fried jalapenos?! Our take on the classic bar food favorite: jalapenos stuffed with ooey gooey Oaxaca cheese and chorizo, then wrapped with bacon and fried. So good you’ll need two orders.
Salad: Famous Silver Bowl Salad
Naturally gluten free, our original Silver Bowl Salad has it all! Spicy glazed chicken, grapes, bell peppers, bacon, and oranges are layered on a bed of romaine, then drizzled with not one – but two – delicious dressings: Caesar and balsamic.
Sandwiches & Burgers: Gluten Free Buns Available!
It doesn’t matter which Dallas sandwich or burger suits your fancy, all are available to order with a gluten free bun. Buffalo Chicken Sandwich, Pulled Pork Sandwich, Uptown Ham & Cheese, or a Bacon Blue Cheese Burger – the choice is completely yours!
Brunch: Salsa’d Eggs
Looking for a brunch spot offering gluten free items and a great atmosphere? Head to The Nodding Donkey and order the Salsa’d Eggs. It’s scrambled eggs sautéed lightly in fresh salsa, then topped with avocados and pico. Corn tortillas are also available on the side.
These are just a few of the gluten free menu options available to you at The Donkey. As always, if you ever have a question about the menu, or whether or not something is gluten free, just ask your server!
Join us at The Nodding Donkey this week for lunch, dinner, Dallas happy hour, or a weekend brunch.
