Foursquare Tips

  • Ask for Smooki. This place is where Jersey Shore kids would go if they were from the Midwest. Disagree? Look around.
  • The downstairs (upstairs open later this summer) also sports chocolate leather booths, 7 high-tops each with its own 24-inch flat screen, plus 13 wall-mounted screens.
  • Enjoy some ice cold ones with friends at the front table.
  • Ask for Lauren, Luna, or Tiffany and tell them Evan sent you.
  • Bring bail $ after 1am..
  • don't come here if you're a dude. bartenders only serve girls. I expect that for a while but this place is rediciulous. aweful.
  • Try and spot the non frat/sorority kids and win a free drink (free drink is a chic cocktail, of course).
  • On, on, U of K! Brilliant idea to use waffle fries as nachos. The pork belly tacos are so good!
  • The 16 inch grilled cheese is an awesome value! Small menu but it's all really good.
  • The only place to go to watch Blackhawks games!
  • Ask for pony punch. Long island, blue powerade or hurricane. Its seasonal!
  • Refused service here because I was gay. Impossible to get a drink.
  • Get the clysdale. Its amazing!
  • Honky Tonk Wednesdays. Free Hillbilly Bingo
  • the wait staff was attentive and really friendly when I was here
  • Come here to watch the Hawks games and if you're hungry, try the monster grilled cheese. It's 14 inches long...
  • Teams: Kentucky, Texas A&M, University of Central Florida. The Pony's a triple threat, offering specials for each of its team's gamedays.
  • They charged my husband for 4 Cokes. I'm sorry that my husband doesn't drink. I had three beers, and we ordered pizza (gross...way too salty. Worst in the city) and dessert. We will not be back.
  • Be a dude if you want service.
