When you go into a restaurant and the people are mostly locals laughing and enjoying themselves and obviously comfortable you probably have a good restaurant. Jim and Petes is a great restaurant. I grew up in nearby Oak Park and often ate their pizza in the 1960's. Now I go there every time when in the area (and Russells BBQ... More

A very old school steak and seafood and cocktail restaurant just over the Chicago border in Elmwood Park IL. 75 years of doing this so they are pretty good at it. The octopus appetizer and the calamari appetizer were both large and pretty damn near perfectly done. One of us had a steak which also was well received with good... More

Jim and Pete's has some of the finest pizza I've ever eaten. In a town where your pizza allegiance is second only to baseball (maybe first) Jim and Pete's has some of the best. Local service is great, ingredients are fresh, and the in-house chocolate cake is amazing. 100% dinner spot destination whenever I'm in town.

Stopped in for dinner one night, and was VERY surprised by the variety on the menu. I got baked lasagna and the sauce was awesome, pasta perfect and just the right amount of cheese. Fantastic warm bread! Oh, and great cocktails.

My wife and I live near Elmwood Park, so EP's "Restaurant Row" on North Avenue is a frequent choice for dining out. I encourage you to go just a bit further west and try out Jim and Pete's. It is our go-to place for Italian food in a community that has a significant Italian-American population. It is definitely a neighborhood... More

We went to a birthday celebration for a good friend. Hubby and I had never been been here before. We had about 30 in our group and dinner was served family style, so we got to try a variety of entrees. The pizza bread appetizer was very tasty. The salad had really fresh greens and was wonderful (how often do... More

We have been going to Jim & Pete's on and off for quite a long time, and have ordered for delivery as well, and for me, it's always a hit or miss. Although everyone else in my group had a great meal, mine was not so great. The whitefish francaise special as well as the neck bones with linguine specials... More
