Was excited to see a fish & chips place, noticed on their brochure (from the Visitor Center) that they had many locations around AZ. Very dissapointed that the fish was a square piece of frozen fish deep fried and not fresh tasting at all. Like a McDonalds filet-o-fish with more crunch. The area is pretty depressed all around with a... More

I was driving by and looking for a place to eat when I saw a line of people eating at this place. Being a fan of fried catfish I decided to give this place a try. I'll be nice by saying the atmosphere was great and the service was excellent but the food sucked. The fish fillets tasted like the... More

If you feel comfortable being surrounded by diabetic sparrows, gang tattooed pigeons, piranha flies, tasteless mustard pickle hamburgers, limp Grade B fries and a spicy hot slick tasting red sauce, this is your kind of place. I pity the customer that said ""Kinda funny going to a fish and chips joint just for the monster burger". I should have just... More

I stopped here to try a Monster Burger. They must have these made up ahead of time because the hamburger was very dry. The only good thing I can say is that it was cheap in price.

Ive grown up seeing the bumper stickers and honestly now grown I have a pallet to please. This is just plain over cooked fried fish and shrimp. Not a fan of their famous sauce and Im a sauce fan! Skip it, this is a frozen over cooked fish place, save some $ and eat better somewhere else.

I am completely baffled by why anyone would stick a "I am addicted to Pete's Fish & Chips" bumper sticker on their car. Though all my friends swear by it, the one is in Glendale is not all that great compared to the others, and I have visited the others. This family owned money laundering operation has been operated since... More

Cash only, no drink refills, no phone orders, no ketchup, 90% breading 10% shrimp, and frozen fish. No thanks. Hey Pete, can I get my money back?

I have been somewhat a regular of this franchise for about twenty years. Used to eat lunch at the original Pete's at least once a week. When I retired that stopped. Well it was a couple of years since I had been back. I had a craving. This is not a fancy place. It is styled after the Fish and... More

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
