Lots of food not much flavor

Good environment, played pool while we waited for our food which took quite a long time. Might return to give them a second chance just because it's such a cool place....but that only deserves a second chance....but that's all.

I was a Petes regular until they made me feel not welcome last time I was there. I usually arrive late and stay until close drinking beer, surfing the "free wifi", and snacking on appetizers and sub sandwiches. Occasionally the "free wifi" will glitch up and need resetting... ok. no big deal, resetting the modem or router should fix it.... More

We love the pizza and chicken wings at Pete's Garage. In my opinion, they have the best wings in Monroe County! They also have a great kids menu! Our kids love to sit in the old fashion "car" booths!

Too long of a wait in a not so comfortable area. Food was very average. Service was almost terrible but my husband and I are low maintenance. They were so busy they claimed that was why we had to wait for clean glasses to get some water....really?

Whenever I go to Petes I get really snarky young waitresses, slow service and my burgers are severely undercooked or over cooked. They have an awesome bar and the mudslide is really tasty. Ambiance is good but food not so great. I go with my friends after work for drinks and that's about it!

Great restaurant for families. Atmosphere is pretty cool. If you can get a booth that is an actual car the kids would enjoy. They have excellent nachos. They have a huge beer selection. I keep hoping they have a visit from diner drive-in and dives. The restaurant is the new clean and modern. Prices are average. Large selection of multiple... More

There's a good beer selection and a sizable menu tilted toward ribs, 'burgers, and fajitas. The decor is a big attraction with several booths made from old cars.

Dropped by for late lunch/early dinner on a Sunday afternoon. Please see my earlier review of 7/15/2015 - we have visited several times since, but thought I should update. The TVs were playing a good range of sports, especially pro football. I got the Tex-Mex Chili Burrito and she the Half-Rack of Ribs. They were both excellent tasting, although the... More

If you live in Monroe, chances are you've eaten at Pete's many, many times and had some great stories to tell. Pete's is a come-as-you-are bar/restaurant. It's the perfect place to meet with a group and is traditionally the place to be during the holidays when all the kids come back home. The food is above average with a large... More
