Wonderful atmosphere. Tasty new Mexican food. Red chile and green. When I don't feel like cooking this is the place I go to get my favorite chile meals

I have been to Pete's every time I have come through Belin on great long road trips to the southwest from Minnesota. It is just a great place. Always great Mexican food and friendly good service. It is well worth it to time your trip to get off the interstate and stop at Pete's.

The best authentic New Mexico red chile. Very affordable and great service. I have hosted my book club there. They have separate, small dining areas so it is conducive to social and family gatherings.

My husband had never had sopapillas- if that is your experience you should try them here;they were great! Like a Mexican popover with honey served on top. The mexican food was good, too. My husband asked specifically for blue corn tortillas and they were able to accommodate him.

Tastes like average Mexican American food. Could do better at home myself and I'm a white boy. Expected great green chili - watery and bland.

I'm a Land of Enchantment native who's eaten enough New Mexican food to know the best place for salsa, the best place for red chile, the best place for chile rellenos... I have never been to a restaurant where everything brought to our table was better than each of my other favorite dishes at other spots, and it was all... More

The best experience was the decor and the sopapillas. The carne adovada had no seasoning other than red chili and the Green chili was watery and tasteless. Not recommended as a New Mexican cuisine experience

On Saturday, we went to a great event ("Follow the Star to Bethlehem") in Belen with friends and family and combined it with dinner at Pete's cafe. I made the reservation for our group (20 total) five days before the event and the gentleman was very courteous and professional; i.e. simple and easy way to make a reservation. On Saturday... More

Last visit to Belen was on a day when Pete's was closed, so we were pleased to catch it open this time. Food was excellent, all tasted fresh, tasty and appropriately spicy. The waitress was attentive and willing to share information about the area. Pete's has added an elevated solar array in the parking lot, which also doubles as a... More
