Stumbled in here starving after a long day of transit. Ordered the triple cheesesteak and it was phenomenal. After also trying Geno’s (usually rated one of the best in Philly), can safely say Pete’s cheesesteak is better.

Went (luckily) at pizza power hour (4-6pm weekdays) so got a 10 inch pizza for $5. Absolutely delicious!! Staff were beyond lovely. Decor is a little rough around the edges but still really great.

Stopped for some pizza after visiting the eastern state penitentiary. Took a little while to get our pizza but the staff was very friendly. The pies were good and we would stop by if in the area again.

I really like the dough they make their pizza on. Service for delivery is pretty quick. Pete's Pizza Special is awesome.

Great food for cheap. A nice short walk from art museum. Also every Wednesday is $5 small pizza which is a great deal!

We parked in the lot beside ESP and visited both places. Some street parking near Pete's if I remember but the parking lot was the easiest and most convenient for both.
