The food is good. The beer is cold. But, Leff's Lucky Town isn't flashy, fancy or very remarkable.
And, the customers in Wauwatosa like it that way.
Located in a historic building that once housed a silent movie theater and a shoe store that fronted a Prohibition speakeasy, Leff's, 7208 W. State St., is the top vote-getter for best bar in Wauwatosa in the OnMilwaukee.com readers' poll.
Leff's -- which claims to have one of the world's biggest urinals -- has become a landmark Tosa watering hole and is especially popular before and after Brewers games.
Last year, owner Chris Leffler took over an old gas station next door to build a patio that allows Leff's to offer outdoor dining that has been a staple for years at Hector's, a Mexican restaurant across the street to the south and is a big attraction at the new Cafe Hollander location nearby.
The OnMilwaukee.com editorial staff, is also partial to Club Tap, 8828 W. North Ave., which just may be Wauwatosa's oldest bar. It's a friendly, low-key neighborhood place that also serves up a mean taco.
