Great lunch while visiting Franklin Institute

Walked over here while visiting the Franklin Institute instead of eating at their food court. I had the cheesesteak and the kids had the pizza - great ambiance, food was perfect and service was very friendly. Highly recommend!

We ordered the meat pizza and it was fantastic. Had it delivered to our hotel and it was still fresh. Pieces were huge and tasty. Feed our whole family of three boys with two slices left over.

Full menu of wraps, salads, pizza's and the like, but the Stromboli (I liked the Italian) was the best I have ever had. A must eat in Philly

The kids and I stopped her after parking in the lot across the street, before visiting Eastern State Penitentiary. What a fantastic meal. The pizza was made quick, and was hot and crisp. The burger was perfectly cooked, on a brioche bun. It was way too big to finish and came with fresh hot fries (when ordered as "deluxe"). My... More

Had to try this pizza after we moved our daughter into her dorm. The pizza was yummy, we brought the leftovers home with us. Staff is freindly and helpful. They are known for the meatballs which made the food network, but we didn't try those. I will next time!

We took our family of 5 here at Pete's Pizza, after we saw their delivery car cross the street. We just came from the Franklin Institute, and this was perfect place to stop and eat as we walked back to our hotel. The place is clean. Bathrooms are really small, but the women's didn't work. The men's room worked fine,... More

We ate here on our way to Eastern State Penitentiary. The small pepperoni pizza was awesome and perfect size for my wife and me as we were really hungry from our walk from the zoo. I would eat there anytime!

I found out about this place from staff at the Franklin Institute! It has good food - I usually get the vegetable grinder - and my kids have had their cheesesteaks. Well- portioned and reasonable prices. Service was friendly and you can watch the game on Sunday.

Our family of 6 was on our way to the Franklin Institute. Instead of spending a bunch of money on over priced food at the museum we decided to try Pete's. Friendly staff, generous portions, and great prices. What more can you ask for? I highly recommend this restaurant if you want delicious, fast food. We had a cheese pizza,... More
