Pete's was on Diners, Drive Inns and Dives which peaked our interest. It's a local restaurant that draws crowds of local people because they know it's good food. Breakfast all day. Delicious. Always a wait but its worth it. The building is old, the tables are old but the place is great. Worth looking for. The pancakes are sweet.

I've come to eat at Petes every weekend now. I've never had a bad meal. The only complaint I have is the long lines to get in usually. I guess that's a good thing. But consistently great food and all staff on the ball. (Try the special omelette-top notch)

I will keep this short because I get really hungry just thinking about it. Order the chorizo burger and make your day.

Very efficient service for breakfast: you put your name on the list and they move people through quickly enough that the wait isn't long. Coffee was very good, refills were plentiful. I had french toast, DH had the Italian sausage breakfast. Both were very good.

A classic breakfast diner! Everything you could want for a hearty start to the day. Busy with a real buzz and fast service! All that and Pete was born in Halifax UK- ten miles from our home in Rochdale England....small world!

Atmosphere is definitely "Dive", but the rest is wonderful, best omelet I have ever had! Best biscuit as well.

This place was featured on that Guy Fieri show on the Food Network--but don't hold that against Pete's. It's not a fancy building. The food is pretty standard breakfast fare, but it is tasty and consistent. This is evidenced by the line of people waiting for tables on weekends.

We live in Houston and every time we are in town we eat here at least twice! I personally have been eating at Pete's for 40 years now. Still just as good and the portions are just as big as ever. Go hungry is all I can say. Great food always!

At last we made it to this little diner! There's nothing special about the decor, but the food does shine. I enjoyed the fresh roasted turkey club and my husband absolutely loved the chorizo burger. It's worth the stop.

Thank Hairup
