Contrary to popular belief, when the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that's a lawsuit. Enjoy Italian cuisine without fear of physical reprisal with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Italian fare and drinks at Pete's Tavern in Morristown. For more than 40 years, Pete's Tavern has served up fresh, hearty meals and icy brews in a quaint, pizza-parlor atmosphere. Pizza and beer is the most popular edible-drinkable combination, and at Pete's, the sauce and dough are made fresh daily and glasses are refilled frequently. Sicilian ($15.95+) and deep-dish disks ($10.95+) sate capacious appetites, while bar pies ($7.95+) and cheese calzones ($7.95+) package a selection of 16 savory toppings in more compact dough cases. A dizzying swarm of pastas overpowers any lingering anti-carb sentiment, while the cheeseburger deluxe ($8.95) challenges chompers with half a pound of beef and a side of waffle fries or beer-battered onion rings. The eatery's bar and pizza kitchen are open every day until 1:30 a.m. for late-night sauce-covered revelry, or for early-morning pizza bench presses.

Serving up Italian/American food favorites—including spaghetti and meatballs, steaks, burgers, to seafood pasta—has been Pete's Tavern's calling since 1966. One of the eatery's more popular items, however, are an Italian twist on sliders. Created in the kitchen by owner Todd Simonds after a busy night, the mini burgers combine the first three things that the hungry Simonds could find: a meatball, a mozzarella-topped garlic knot, and marinara sauce. If meatballs aren't your thing, that's OK—you can swap them for sausages, eggplant, breaded chicken, or pepperoni.
