The Weekend isn’t Complete Without Brunch at The Nodding Donkey!

If you love eating at The Nodding Donkey during the week, then don’t miss the opportunity to try our weekend brunch as well!


The Nodding Donkey – the best sports bar in Dallas, Texas – is open on weekends and serves Dallas brunch from 11am-2pm on Saturday and Sunday. It’s a great chance to catch an early game and eat some amazing food. 


Brunch: Tex-Mex Style

As is the case with most of our menu items at The Donkey, our brunch menu looks like it’s been hit by the Tex-Mex train. Each of our traditional brunch offerings has been infused with a little bit of Mexican…or maybe a little bit of southern bbq. Either way, you’re gonna love it. Here are a few of our customer favorites:

Brisket & Scramble Tacos

Each of these breakfast tacos is stacked high with hickory smoked brisket, fluffy scrambled eggs, shredded cheese, and a green chili sauce, all wrapped in warm corn tortillas. Frankly, this is a meal we’d eat any time of the day, it’s just so good.


Backyard Benedict

Traditionally fussy and stuffy, our eggs benedict gets a makeover! Think biscuits and gravy – but better! – as each of our fresh biscuits is toasted and topped with Canadian bacon, fried eggs, and tasso ham gravy. 


Salsa’d Eggs

We frequently get requests for Gluten Free menu items in Dallas, and this one is perfect for brunch! Fluffy scrambled eggs get sautéed with salsa, then served with sliced avocados, pico de gallo, and corn tortillas. 


Brunch Drink Specials in Dallas at The Nodding Donkey

As you’re contemplating which menu item to order, don’t forget to save room for Dallas drink specials! Bloody Marys and Mimosas are just $4 during brunch! Or get $20 buckets of beer!
