Wonderful stop! My hubby bought an animal pelt! He never buys anything! I bought a great book about stops along RT 20. I also bought a medicine dreamcatcher of my sick son. Great conversation. Then, of course food and a splendid view! This place is what a road trip is all about.

Reminded me of places I visited when I was young. Tons of cool stuff. Great view of the valley to enjoy... More

Came all the way from Scotland and was not disappointed. Had the beer chilli dog, my son signed the book to have the hot chilli dog, both were great. Had a lovely time chatting with Pete who was good fun. If you're driving I20, I recommend dropping in, you can't miss it.

We are in town for the Hall of Fame induction weekend. On the drive out of Cooperstown to our hotel, we drove by Tepee Pete's. It looked pretty cool so we turned around to check it out. Boy am I glad we did! The chili was unbelievably good. We had the spicy chili with homemade chips. It's a must try... More

Our burgers, dogs, chili and potato chips (made on the spot fried tortilla... More

My wife and I had spent the day in Cooperstown at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and were on our way back to our hotel in Sharon Springs when we spotted the TePee along Route 20 - a giant tepee, gift shop and hot dog stand from America's past with magnificent scenic views. It was 7:30 pm, we hadn't... More
