    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. Read more

    Teams: Kentucky, Texas A&M, University of Central Florida. The Pony's a triple threat, offering specials for each of its team's gamedays. Read more

    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.

    I like the table setup and service. Fighting for a space at the bar to order drinks is so old fashioned.

    Ask for pony punch. Long island, blue powerade or hurricane. Its seasonal!

    They blast the Hawks game and play music during the breaks Just be prepared to not hold a conversation over the table if the hawks are on

    Good for drinks. Stay away from the buffalo chicken breast because it's neither breast nor all white meat for that matter. Calamari is always overly fried and burned. Wings are always super salty.

    Try and spot the non frat/sorority kids and win a free drink (free drink is a chic cocktail, of course).

    Come here to watch the Hawks games and if you're hungry, try the monster grilled cheese. It's 14 inches long...

    Ask for Smooki. This place is where Jersey Shore kids would go if they were from the Midwest. Disagree? Look around.

    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.
