Being a motorist in the Phoenix metro-area for almost 20 years, I see the following bumper-sticker all the time: I am addicted to Pete's Fish and Chips. Well, as this spot is right down the street from my house, I figured I better check-it-out, in view of these glowing endorsements Verdict: I am disappointed. This places serves up frozen, grocery...

I lived a few miles away from the Glendale location for many years. Eating at Pete's never gets old. There are several locations around the valley, and most of the vary just slightly. The Glendale location is my favorite, but the location on Buckeye is 2nd to that and the one in Mesa is 3rd for me. I love the... More

What I got was less than what I used to get at the Tolleson location. Hard to tell if the fish patties were not processed fish. Fish was dry and so were the chips. Not much taste to the entire meal Fish fry at my work is 10 times better.

Pete's has been in the valley so long that I don't even remember the first time I had some of Pete's fish and chips. This fast food operation is not for the faint of pallet. There is more to the menu than just fish and chips. When I was still working I used to go to the location on east... More

We found nothing to recommend about this restaurant. The fish was dry,the fries were even drier, and the tarter sauce was bland,

I have wanted to try this place for a while and finally did so after driving by during the lunch hour. What a disappointment, I can’t believe they have been in business for so long. The fish is fine but seems to be just frozen squares of fish fried up. (My son liked it quite a bit) The chips (shoestring... More

We come from fish country and were excited to have a fish place so close to our house. But when we got our broiled fresh it smelled so old-fishy that we gave it right back to them. They though it smelled fine. Hmmm... not a good sign. We did go back a few weeks later for a second try but... More

We finally got to Pete's today, and I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the fish, its crispiness, and its delicate flavor. The sauce was addictive; I'm not sure what's in Pete's Red Sauce, but you just keep dipping the fish in for more. The fish was piping hot and seasoned just right. I don't eat much fried food,...
