So you’ve come to The Nodding Donkey with a few friends. You love the atmosphere and your favorite team is playing a game on the big screen. Food smells amazing…but what to order?! Here are a few of our tried and true favorites, as suggested by the many restaurant reviewers who frequent your favorite Uptown restaurant and bar:
Favorite Sandwich: BBQ Brisket Grilled Cheese
Why We Love It: “Skip everything on the menu and get the brisket grilled cheese,” said one Yelp.com reviewer. And that pretty much sums it up. Patrons love this delicious, comfort food sandwich with it’s ooey gooey melted cheddar cheese, tender, flaky brisket, and homemade barbeque sauce.
Favorite Appetizer: Chips & Salsa
Why We Love It: Yes, we know. This is Dallas, home of a Tex-Mex restaurant on every corner. You may not think The Nodding Donkey has any business serving salsa, but we can prove you wrong. Our salsa is anything but store bought, made fresh daily with fire-roasted tomatoes that are roasted in-house to perfection.
Favorite Burger: Saloon Burger
Why We Love It: Channeling the Wild West here. Even the pickiest cowboy will love the Donkey’s Saloon Burger. All-natural beef patty, homemade chipotle mayo, smoked onions, all on top of a freshly baked brioche bun. On a gluten free diet? No problem! Just ask your server for a gluten free bun.
Favorite Texican Entrée: The Allen Street Tacos
Why We Love It: The Nodding Donkey isn’t Mexican food – or plain bar food – or Southern barbeque…it’s just all of the above melded together into something awesome. Texican we call it. And if you want to try our Texican menu, grab The Allen Street Tacos with tender brisket, pico, and cotija cheese. As one reviewer said, “The Allen tacos are superb!” Don’t forget to visit us on Thursdays at lunch for Texican lunch specials.
These are just a few of the customer favorites around here at The Nodding Donkey! Join us this week to try these and other amazing dishes – and don’t forget to grab a drink or two on the side.
