Petes has an extensive menu. Something for everyone. Burgers and pot pie are good. Service is excellent . I would give it another star if their vegetables were better. Most tast like they came out of a can. Their specials are good. Look at their board wen entering. Good variety of deserts. Breakfest is excellent.

All the homecooked food you want served by a friendly staff in a clean, open dining room. All your favorites are here - large menu.

The staff is very helpful with trying to be sure you have what you need and keep drinks filled. Prices are good but some of the food is lacking flavor (vegetables). Got the fried oysters and fiance got chicken quesodilla, both were good. However got the peanut butter explosion, we do not recommend this dessert. Cake tasted like freezer cake... More

The place was large and quickly filled up. The servers were very attentive and my coffee never got below the halfway mark before they were freshening it up. The servers were also on top of other things like asking if we wanted butter on our toast, if we wanted our bacon crisp, and were happy to make separate checks. The... More

Passed this diner on the way to Pinehurst. The parking lot was packed at lunch so we decided to stop in and give it a try. My husband had the fish special and I asked for an egg salad sandwich. Both were yummy and came with a ton of sides. If you want veggies, this is a great place to... More
