My husband and I go here all the time. Breakfast, lunch, diner, you name it. He loves their hamburger stakes. Their fried chicken is to die for (takes extra time to weight on but SO worth it). Grilled chicken is good to. Breakfast omelets are excellent. Their pancakes are HUGE and I love their french toast. Good food, great service.... More

Pete's has been in Easley for many years. i remember going there when the actual Pete owned it. The food is still great, I especially like the meat and 3. They have a variety to choose from. I also enjoy their burgers. Very nice people & a good value.

I have only had the pulled pork and fried chicken here but they were very good. Reasonably priced and a charming diner atmosphere

This is NOT anything fancy. This is old school diner at its best. Don't expect 5 star food. Expect greasy gut bomb type food. I love this place. It's a childhood favorite of mine. I come here from time to time when I'm back in town visiting. Every friend I've brought here over the years, that has never been here,... More

The burgers were fresh with homemade pickles and onion rings. Very satisfying before my next day's hike to Table Rock. My server reminded me of Brigitte Bardot too!

They have great burgers and fries, ordered ahead of time and it was ready for our pick up when they said it would be ready. Reasonable prices.

Went there for lunch, quite busy. ordered the fried chicken livers, which were the only thing on my plate that was good. The mac and cheese had no taste (really bland no cheddar flavor). Had the banana pudding, which had bananas, wafers, and cool whip type stuff. No pudding in it at all. Husband had the club sandwich which he... More

Dined here with 2 of my sons on a slow Saturday afternoon. Two of us ordered hotdogs w/fries. Other one ordered kid's burger w/mac and cheese. The service was friendly. The food came out a tad slow. The hot dogs would have been tastier with better chili. The fries were plentiful and almost hot. Might return, might not......that is why... More

After seeing the lines at IHOP this sunny Saturday morning, my husband, daughter, and myself decided to give this long lived local chain a try. We were able to get a seat immediately. Our order came and it was huge, hot, and fantastic. The prices were better than the competition and with the larger portion size, they're a huge value.
