Baseball & Burgers: 5 Reasons to Love the Burgers at The Nodding Donkey

Opening Day was this week and we’re pretty excited to ring in spring with America’s pastime.

 

If you come in to The Nodding Donkey and join us for a game, you may just want to grab a burger while you’re at it! Ice cold craft beer, a burger, and baseball – what’s not to love?! Here are 5 reasons why we love the burgers at The Nodding Donkey:

 

Seared All-Beef Patty

Each burger is made with fresh with 100% all natural beef patties. We sear each one and cook it medium well, creating the perfect balance of a juicy burger and beefy flavor. Don’t like your burger medium well? No problem! Each burger is made-to-order, so ask your server to cook it just the way you like it.

 

Brioche Bun

The bun is a critical part of the burger and we only use the freshest, homemade brioche buns. They are spongy and toasted, creating the perfect balance of crunch and softness. It’s just one of the things that makes our burgers some of the best burgers in Dallas.

 

Gourmet Burger Options

We have paired down our burger menu, leaving only our most popular customer favorites. Three great burgers, each with their own flare:

·      Saloon Burger: Smoked onions, pepper jack, and chipotle mayo.

·      Mushroom, Onion, and Swiss Burger: Sautéed mushrooms, caramelized onions, and Swiss cheese.

·      Bacon Blue Cheese Burger: Blue cheese crumbles, bacon, and crispy onions.

 

Your Burger, Your Way

While we have some Dallas gourmet burger options on the menu, it’s totally up to you if you want to change it up! Lettuce, tomato, onion, mustard, etc. – tell us what you want! On a celiac diet? We have gluten free bun options – simply ask your server.

 

Variety of Sides

It’s hard to pass up our fresh cut French fries, but if you’re looking for something different, you can also order a side of potato salad, the house side salad, or fruit instead. Lots of options just for you.

 

So with baseball season in full swing, it’s time to join us at The Nodding Donkey for baseball and the best burgers in Dallas, Texas! Just don’t forget a glass of ice cold draft beer to go with it!
