Spring is Here: Time for Dinner & Drinks on the Patio!

With this glorious Dallas weather, we can’t help but yearn for dinner and drinks on the patio!

The Nodding Donkey may be one of the best sports bars in Dallas, but it’s also a great restaurant! Our chefs pride themselves on steering clear of the typical bar food, creating delicious, fresh meals that can please any palate.

Most of the food inspiration at The Nodding Donkey comes from an infusion of Texan style barbeque and authentic Mexican food, creating what we like to call “Texican food.” Weird name. Amazing food.

Not sure what to try?! Here are a few of our favorites:

·      Allen Street Tacos: The Allen Street Tacos are made-to-order tacos served with your choice of succulent beef brisket, chicken, fish, or pulled pork. Top them with sour cream, guacamole, pico de gallo, and bacon, and you’re in heaven.

·      Chicken Fried Steak: In the mood for some southern comfort food? Then try our chicken fried steak. Juicy steak, breaded and fried, then topped with traditional gravy and served with a side of mashed potatoes, homemade biscuits, and fresh corn. It’ll rival your grandma’s best home cookin!

·      BBQ Brisket Grilled Cheese: One of our most popular sandwiches! If you’re looking for a guaranteed hit, then go with this one. Tender, chopped brisket, ooey gooey melted cheddar cheese, and bacon all sandwiched between two thick, toasted pieces of Texas toast. Is your mouthwatering yet?! Get a salad or a cup of fruit on the side to finish out the meal.

So join us this week at The Nodding Donkey Uptown to catch a game, have a few drinks, and then eat dinner. Our menu is full of something for everyone – sandwiches, burgers, enchiladas, and salads – all fresh and made to order. We hope to see you on the patio this week at your Dallas neighborhood restaurant and bar!
