Simple & Satisfying: Sandwiches at The Nodding Donkey

Sometimes simple is just better. And when it comes to sandwiches, you can’t go wrong with simple, gourmet ingredients prepared to perfection.


Our Executive Chef – Rhett Dukes – believes in the philosophy that gourmet doesn’t need to be stuffy. He keeps it simple, and we love him for it! When it comes to the sandwich menu, don’t expect a run-of-the-mill fast food sandwiches here. What you can expect are top quality ingredients you know and love, prepared with a Texas flare only The Nodding Donkey can create. Here are a few of our favorites:


Most Popular: BBQ Brisket Grilled Cheese

When asked what we would order, our servers frequently say “The BBQ Brisket Grilled Cheese.” As one recent reviewer said, “the brisket grilled cheese is ahhhmazing!” But don’t take our word for it. Customers can’t get enough of our ooey gooey melted cheddar cheese, paired with tender cuts of brisket, all served on Texas toast.


New Twist on an Old Favorite: Uptown Ham & Cheese

Sure, your moms used to put ham and cheese sandwiches in your school lunches…but she didn’t make a ham and cheese like this! The Nodding Donkey uses home-cured ham, a blend of four artisanal cheeses, and the secret ingredient: poblano-jalapeno jam. The jam just takes the flavor to a whole new level! Served on a brioche bun and a side of fruit or fries, it’s a simple and satisfying lunch.


Best Texican Sandwich: Pulled Pork

The Nodding Donkey is known for blending TexMex and barbeque, creating a whole menu of Texican food that does not disappoint. Our Pulled Pork Sandwich is no different. The perfect blend of sweet and savory, slow roasted pulled pork is infused with sweet molasses, then paired with a tangy homemade coleslaw. The result – Texican perfection.
