Pete's Park Place Tavern Near The Avalon: Come for Wing Night on Mondays

If you come to Pete's Park Place Tavern on a Monday night, don't be surprised to see a crowd. The popular restaurant, which isn't far from The Avalon, gets even more popular on its weekly Wing Nights. Each Monday, you can get wings for just a quarter apiece. It that's not enough to convince you to visit Pete's, then maybe that fact that it opened nearly 80 years ago will be!

Founder Peter Koutsis debuted Pete's Place Park Tavern in 1937. In the intervening years, ownership has passed through the hands of his descendents. Pete's son, Phil Koutsis, only recently retired. So although Pete's has undergone some changes over the past few decades, most of its offerings have stayed the same. That includes the burgers, a favorite among locals because they're stuffed inside of English muffins instead of traditional hamburger buns.
