Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. This is a phrase that can be said about 8th streets little token of ugly beauty, The Ugly Mug. JKGF likes a nice decor but it’s really about the food for us. Now the Ugly Mug is not the beauty mark on the block but it has some of the best potato skins on this side of town and huge televisions for watching football to match. The atmosphere offers a super chill, laid back and friendly neighborhood bar/restaurant kind of effect. It is one of those places where jeans and a cute pair of boots (*for the ladies…) might be a little too dressed up;-) Throw on your Juicy Coutour sweats and black hoodies for this spot and enjoy some good ‘ole fashioned beer and football conversation.
We suggest you try the potato skins (of course!) and the wings…basically your typical bar food but with a little more TLC here;-) The seats and booths are old and torn so this is why this won’t be a looker, but enjoy it for what it is…a place where everybody knows your name!
