Leff's Lucky Town
Readers of OnMilwaukee.com named Leff's Lucky Town the best bar in Wauwatosa in 2011, and it’s easy to see why. Though the historic building has housed both a silent-movie theater and a shoe store concealing a Prohibition-era speakeasy, today the wood-paneled bar is anything but silent, and the taps flow freely and legally. Groups of friends and family members wash down 10 signature burgers and a menu of Cajun barbecue wings, larger-than-life pretzels with stone-ground mustard, and sandwiches such as The Hulkster—hot ham, turkey, and roast beef.
Yet what may have been the award clincher is the spot's welcoming, humbly homey atmosphere, which may have also contributed to it being featured on the Fox6 Days of Dining Week. Tucked amid sports memorabilia or together on the outdoor patio, parties gather to catch their favorite sports or telekinetic spoon-bending competitions on high-definition televisions.
