When It’s Gotta Be Fried... Football & Fried Food at The Nodding Donkey

Fried food lovers rejoice! The Nodding Donkey has a large selection of delicious fried options sure to hit the spot. Whether you’re joining us for lunch, dinner, or just to watch a game with your buddies, a fried food fix is what you need. Here a few gameday favorites to get your mouthwatering:


Willy’s Wagon Wheels


Definitely one of our customers’ favorite appetizers! Willy’s Wagon Wheels are really just fried pickles, battered and deep fried for deliciousness that oozes out of every bite (okay, maybe that’s grease, but whatever! It’s good!). Served with our homemade ranch dipping sauce. And bonus: these can be made gluten free. Just ask your server.


S&A Chicken Strips


Our signature chicken strips are great for a snack, lunch, or dinner. Each chicken strip is marinated, rolled in 9 herbs and spices, then deep fried to make one of the best fried foods in Dallas. Each batch is served with French fries. And now on the menu…Wicked Chicken Strips! They are just like the original, but tossed in buffalo sauce! Yum!


Fried Buffalo Chicken Sandwich


Speaking of spicy…another customer favorite is the Fried Buffalo Chicken Sandwich! Our crispy chicken breast is tossed in a sweet cayenne sauce, then served with your choice of toppings on a brioche bun. 


Donkey Balls


Yeah, the name is funny, but these balls of fried goodness are no joke! Our Donkey Balls are fried balls of Oaxaca white cheddar cheese, with just a hint of jalapeno mixed in. Dip them in ranch or marinara; we dare you to order just one plate! 


So the next time you’re in the mood for some delicious Dallas fried food, come watch the game with us at the best sports bar in Dallas and order up one of our tried and true customer favorites! The Nodding Donkey is open 7 days a week; hours vary daily.
