Phoenix New Times' Description
There's no clearer illustration of how this Mesa mainstay toes the line between family-friendly establishment and dive bar than its claw machine, which is filled with stuffed animals and, ahem, adult novelties. Beyond this incongruous mix of innocence and outrageousness, Groggy's offers numerous pool tables and a relaxed environment, no matter how intense the billiards action becomes. All three flags of North America (Canada, the United States, and Mexico) hang on the wall of the bar, seemingly underscoring the unity shared by its patrons in their common pursuit of a good time. Both neighborhood folk and students from the nearby Mesa Community College visit in search of $2.50 happy hour specials on Budweiser beers, or perhaps for a few games of nine ball. Groggy's also features a vintage outdoor sign (depicting a wild-eyed frog gripping a pool cue and frosty mug), which proudly proclaims the establishment's M.O. of "good food, good fun, good spirits."
Tips from foursquare
The beer is flat; the bartenders overuse the word "hun" when they wait on you; and you can smell the dirty deep fryer all the way to the pool tables. What a hole!
If you aint got nothing nice to say, Go Fuck Yourself!!
Do not let the front exterior weigh on judgment; the interior is extremely roomy and polished! 6 pool tables & 2 dart boards await ye who choose entry. Staff is extremely warm and hospitable!!
Give Felita a hug...she lives hugs...and TIPs!
After living here for second time..since 96 i finally made it..well worth my time
