    Great atmosphere, service it's superb. Ask for the local drafts, Community Mosaic IPA it's exquisite. Don't forget to try the Cuban Burrito with some fries.

    You must order a Donkey Punch. It's fruity and delicious! House drink that "only hurts for a minute". Oh, and it includes moonshine!

    Nice and open, in a great location in the State-Thomas area. Good TV's and a fun environment. Can be hot in the summer because of the layout.

    Great sports bar! My personal fav...food is delicious and service is usually quick! Usually packed so you may have to wait for a table or just sit at the bar...worth the wait.

    Great place to catch a game. Beware, they're associated with kU, so stay away during college basketball season unless you want to deal with a bunch of beakers being obnoxious.

    It took me three trips to realize that this place was not called "The Naughty Donkey". I think that speaks to the quality of the drinks. The joint gets a stamp of approval.
