Great place. He makes you sign a release before you try the hot chili. Very friendly service and a great view from the picnic area.Nice souvenirs at the tee pee.

Tepee Pete has excellent hot dogs and burgers!! But what stands out the most is his Harvest Chili and fried dough with apples and cinnamon !! His harvest chili is unique and should be sold in stores!! Next time I'm in Cherry Valley I'll be stopping by the Tee Pee for more !! Bob P.

Had Pete's "Beer Chili" on the BBQ Burger a long with Sweet potato fries and Blue Berry Vinegar dipping sauce. And it was flipping awesome!!! Pete was super friendly and has loads of stories to tell.

We decided to find the tin tepee we had visited over 25 years ago. It is still there with a much larger gift shop than we remembered. Right outside the tepee is Tepee Pete's Chow Wagon with hot dogs, chili and a cold drink. Pete's an absolute delight to talk to, and the view from the parking lot is breathtaking.... More

Just visited this place based on the reviews on Trip advisor. The owner was super friendly. I thought it was cute that I had to sign a disclaimer before I tried the hot chili. I was glad I tried it first. I wound up going with the harvest bounty chili which was very good. I'm glad we went. I probably... More

Decided to take the scenic route from Skaneateles to Saratoga via Rte 20. Stopped at the Tepee gift shop. A place my husband visited as a boy some 50 years ago. Brought back a lot of memories. Couldn't leave without a 7 peppers chili shot. Loved it! Signed the waiver and got some to take home. Was a pleasure to... More

I am from Western SD and have travelled significantly and had chili from all over. This is some of the best there is. The overtones and complexity of the "heat" is terrific but not overwhelming. I had mine with a quesadilla. The owner is your cook and server, and the whole experience was delightful; a plus in this day and... More

Tepee Pete is hilarious and entertaining, and I think he has the best chili in NY State. The 7 pepper chili shooter (free) is VERY spicy but still flavorful. If you try it, you get to sign the book and read the reactions of others who have tried it from all over the world. Pete created a special grilled chicken... More

I tried the 7 pepper chili shooter as a starter. It is hot. Not unbearable, but hot. Our bill of fair ended but being a chili cheese dog, a half order of the Nachos Supreme (Grande), and a bacon cheese burger. The Nachos were amazing. We opted for a blend of the 7 pepper and the mild and it was... More

Love love love this place! Ordered the food, and Pete said we could walk around the gift shop while he cooks the food (he would ring the dinner bell when it was ready). We had a chili cheese dog, two dogs with grilled onions, fries with cheese and bacon, and the FAMOUS hot chili. The boyfriend had to sign a... More
