Depsite it's odd hours and out of the way location, Pete's is a great place to eat good diner food--something lacking around Capitol Hill. The food is good, the service excellent and you can be in and out as quickly as you want. all in all, a good experience.

Good diner food for a decent price. Located very close to the Capitol on a quiet side street. Service was fast and they always came around to see if you needed anything. Would reccomend this place.

My husband and I came here to get a quick bite while we were waiting for the house of representatives to go back in session. Its close to the capitol building and very filling for the price. The menu has a variety of dishes and there are specials posted everywhere. This is a great place to grab some food very quickly before heading to your next destination.

We ended up here for lunch because it is one of the closest places to eat to the Library of Congress and the Capitol. The staff were friendly and the service was prompt. Sandwiches and salads were basic diner staples, and were inexpensive considering the prime city location. Unfortunately the quality was only so-so. Companions said the chicken and tuna salads were tasty, but the presentation was lacking in hard, unripe tomatoes (in the middle of fresh tomato season). My large club sandwich had lots of bacon, but was kind of tasteless otherwise. Next time we will try somewhere else down the block.

I went there for breakfast before a long day at the Smithsonians museums. Service was fast and the food ok. You can have an American breakfast with less than 10$. Even if you don't have a big choice as Denny's or IHOP, this place will work for sure.
