We had an occasion to be in the area and did not know of any place to have lunch. We just happened to drive by Pete's and decided to try it out. Upon entering, we could see that this was a "local" favorite - for the time of day, there were many customers. At first, it seemed just like any... More

Overrated. Nothing special about this place. And, It's not a "steakhouse", from what I've seen. More of a pizza and cheesesteak place. The only difference between Pete's and dozens of other similar places is the availability of beer.

Good food and VERY reasonable prices. After being seated we waited at least 15 minutes for our waiter. Once she came by she was good though the food came out fairly slowly. Don't go to Pete's if you're in a hurry. Plan to have a drink and enjoy the company of whoever you go with and you'll be fine. Oh,... More

Cheese Steaks and Fries! There's a cheese steak with bacon called the Margie Sandwich. My fave! A quick lunch on a snowy day is just the ticket at Pete's!

I've been wanting to try this place for years but never had the time. Tried it for the first time today and I was pleased with the food. The place has that 50's decor and the waitress's are very friendly. The amount of food they give you is worth the price. Will definitely try to come back again.

Went there for an off the menu item that I have been told about. The " Pig Wings" I ordered were awesome! Fish and chips were great as well. Prices are very reasonable and the staff is very friendly. Local people ranging from their late 30's to mid 60's . Will be back very soon and a must try

We are traveling throughout the Northeast and stopped here for dinner tonight. The food was excellent, Delmonico Steak salad and Tuscan salad, fresh greens and lots of well cooked toppings. Our waitress, Antonia, totally complimented the meal with her friendly attitude and excellent service. This local restaurant really deserves its great reputation.
