City Pages' Description

Tony Jaro's has been a staple of Nordeast since 1960. Stop by in the afternoon, and you'll find the bar filled with regulars tipping back drinks and telling a 'dirty johnny' joke or two. Wood-paneled walls are decorated with trophies from the softball teams sponsored by the bar and photos paying homage to the late Tony Jaros himself, a local celebrity who played for the Minneapolis Lakers back in the day. The bar's most famous attraction is the Greenie, a lime-flavored drink concoction created by Tony's oldest son and only found here.

    I love everything about Jaro's! I bring friends in there to experience the Greenie, or pinkie or bluee or purplie or even the brownie!!! They are all so delicious you could have any of them. The food is GREAT hangover food, full of grease and goodness. Just a fun place with ppl from everywhere!!

    Get a Greenie. Bring cash because they don't take credit cards.
