A must visit of your traveling through cherry valley on Hwy 20! Burgers were great and made with fresh ingredients. Pete was entertaining and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The view of the valley below is breathtakingly beautiful. Great gift shop, too!

I've been visiting Pete's Chow Wagon for the last ten years. Pete's chili is amazing and always hits the spot. The location is family friendly and has great views of the Mohawk Valley.
