“Beer yes, food no”
Review of Whistlin Donkey

Whistlin Donkey
Ranked #2 of 3 Restaurants in Woodward
Cuisines: American
Restaurant details
Reviewed August 26, 2017

Woodward was our access to the High Trestle Trail. We were excited to park by the Whistling Donkey and looked forward to music and a bite at the end of the day. The band seemed really good, but outside seating was packed--no place to hang out. The food on the grill smelled great. We ordered, and 45 minutes later, got a mediocre cheeseburger and the news that they were "out of pork chops." Seemed really rude not to tell us in time to substitute--nor to offer a substitute. Had to ask for a refund, as we paid when we ordered, with out beer. Very active local--they don't need extra business. BYO food. Beer was fine.

Lively, fun stop right off the High Trestle Trail. It has a full menu with decent pub grub for hungry bikers. We love the outdoor bar area which many times has acoustic music. It also has a full indoor bar/restaurant. Bicycling attire is acceptable here and it gets very busy on Full Moon Rides.

Cold beer, bar food. What else do you need? It's right on the trail and makes for a perfect turnaround stop!
