Pete's has a good selection of different kinds of food with some salads as well... it's a good option for diner-type comfort food. They also have a drive-thru!

A good selection of fried foods, burgers and sandwiches. Staff are very friendly and welcoming, food is served at drive through or inside at the counter. You can eat in, in which case the food is bought to your table for you. Food is plain and simple but well prepared and hot. No frills but worth the money, a price... More

Every single time I am in Simpsonville I always make it a must to stop by Pete's. Pete's has been around for years but I never tire of the selection. What's good???.....What's not good????....I have never gotten a thing there that wasn't delicious. I always get the Onion Rings....

Although there is a somewhat large selection - mostly fried foods - what we had, burgers, were quite ordinary. Prices were just ok - not expensive but on the other hand the food wasn't the greatest. We'd won't return. Greasy tables!

Good food and exactly what you would expect from this type of restaurant. Good onion rings and slaw. Only issue I have ever had is sometimes the honey mustard taste old and they are a little pricey.

Pete's is a Simpsonville staple. You get large portions and good variety of foods. There are healthy options (I love the garden salad) but the other menu items are probably more popular, fries, fish, chicken breasts and hotdogs. Service is fast and friendly and the prices are terrific. Pete's is a great alternative to fast food, perfect for a quick... More

Pete's has been a popular place even before Simpsonville was. As best I can remember, Pete's is the oldest restaurant still operating in town. The food is always good and the portions never disappoint. Most food is fried, so it's not for the health conscious, other than a few salads, but if you want a good meal fast, you can't... More

Best hot dogs in town. Really like their chili. We have been many times. Like Pete's dogs better than other local dog places.

My husband and I came to Pete ' s for lunch. I got the fried catfish; he got a ribeye sandwich. We were going to share a fried sampler appetizer. He said he enjoyed his sandwich. The catfish had very heavy breading, as well as the fried sampler appetizers. The breading was so heavy that I could not eat this... More

I have had several items on the menu here...all good! However, i recently ordered catfish which is something I seldom order at a restaurant because you never know what you'll get. It was awesome! Nice serving, crunchy with great taste. It is so hard to find good catfish so I had to post a review. Try it!
