    Avoid the blonde. Eddie is the best bartender. I suggestion you open your tab with him even if you sit at a table

    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.

    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.

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