About the Book

This book was written for the Lucas family and for the fans of “Donkey’s Place” in Camden, NJ. The iconic business was founded by Leon Lucas in 1943. Leon was a boxer who won a medal in the 1928 Olympics. He became a Camden, NJ legend. Leon earned the nickname “Donkey” because his punch was compared to being kicked by a Donkey, a common sight in Camden, NJ when he was young. Leon invented a cheesesteak sandwich that is still made today exactly as it has been for the last 79 years in the same building. Not only has this legendary treat been passed down through 3 generations of the Lucas family but also through 3 generations of its customers. Many of them reminisce of when their parents or grandparents took them there for the first time to share the experience together. The love of Donkey’s Place is ingrained into Camden and the love of Camden is ingrained into Donkey’s Place.
