Host to hundreds of firemen/police retirement parties, softball-team postgame blowouts, and local civic groups, Lee’s Tavern is something of a community hub with the Palemine family acting as live-in landlords (they reside upstairs) since 1969. The décor is rustic: A wooden archway leads to the tables in the back room; a portrait of patriarch—and former cop—Diego hangs near the wooden bar. If the beer selection is a little underwhelming with only Blue Moon, Sam Adams, Budweiser, Coors Light, and Heineken on tap, the pizza more than makes up for it. Thin and crisp with a tangy sauce and a reasonable price (under $10 for a large), these pies go a long way to explaining why the gigantic side rooms fill up for private parties and why the mailman can be caught here after completing his neighborhood route.
