    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.

    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.

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

    Great sports bar! My personal 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.

    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.
