Nice place to play some games for entertainment. Pinballs, video, racing, pool... Used to go here when I lived here and went back for memories and played some games. I would like to see more video games (pacman, ms pacman...) and older pinballs though.

Teens will love the ticket-style, hunting, and racing games. Parents will enjoy those but will especially love the great variety of classic pinball games. An added perk is that everything still operates on quarters rather than cards.

Great place back in the day before XBOXs and PS. Great location in downtown EL. Stop in for nostalga or with kids. Place is a little old and games aren't fresh which is why I rated 3 stars.

This is our favorite place to take out of town guests. It's great that all of the machines haven't jacked their prices and most are still a quarter. A cheap date night!

This place is awesome. The best part is they are open all night I believe or really stinking late! It was the best to get done at the bars and travel down to place some games until the cab crowd clears out a little. Then...More

The game were old but that was cool to experience the old arcade feel. The games were genuine. Including Pac-man, The Simpsons pinball and Star Trek pinball.

Stopped in at Pinball Pete's. How could you possibly walk by without going in? I couldn't. I'm a big pinball fan from back in the day. This place has 10 machines, which isn't bad - but they clearly pander to the non-pinball crowd - which...More
