Pete's is legendary and it has received plenty of great reviews already. I'm writing as a fan and frequent customer. Whenever I long for a good old country-style breakfast in a place with plenty of "atmosphere" I head over to Pete's

Greek salad was lovely as well. Wait staff very attentive, polite, and friendly. My family and I came for an early lunch snack. Enjoyed a Greek salad with two cinnamon rolls. Food is prepared and table side promptly. Will be a permanent staple in all Denver trips.

Iconic, longstanding, original. You must check this place out. The local fare is pretty tasty, quickly served, and of good value for the portion. As far as your late night dining options there are few and this is a good one. Plan your visit on off-hours to avoid the crowds.

My boyfriend and I are avid gyro fans. We were tired after a busy morning in the city and saw this little gem pop up under greek food in the Denver metro area. Looked like a hole in the wall but boy oh boy did the food speak for itself!! Biggest, and I mean the BIGGEST gyro you'll ever see... More

My husband and I stopped in for a late dinner on a Friday night. After traveling all day, we both just wanted some comfort food, and came to the right place. I ordered scrambled eggs (light scrambled), crisp bacon and hash browns. The eggs and bacon were A-1 perfect! The hasbrowns (we in Wisconsin call them raw or American fries)... More

Pete's is right off of Colfax. Whoever Pete is, he's got quite a few spots on this strip. We came in for some Greek Americana and licked the plate clean. The Souvlaki is pork and savory! The pita is great, but the taziki stole the show. Definitely order some (.75 cents as a side. The decor is classic diner. With... More

Stopped in for a late lunch and decided to split the Greek salad. Glad we did. It was huge! Ours included gyro meat, a huge hunk of feta, tomatoes, plump kalamata olives, green peppers and pepperocini, all atop a pile of crispy lettuce. Warm pita bread and tazicki sauce in the side. We shared it and had leftovers to take... More

Three of us were wandering around Chessman Park and decided to get a bite to eat. We asked a local who steered us toward Petes kitchen. It has the look and feel of the perfect American diner and I bet if you are wanting a burger or breakfast, then this would be great. My husband had the best item which... More
