i found this place by accident several years ago when the place next door was ranking #1 on TA but was too busy. I have eaten here multiple times. this place has the best corn-beef hash breakfast I have ever had! don't let the line out in front scare you. it's well worth the wait.

Great little hole in the wall restaurant in Ventura. Great food and good service. The mural inside is quite interesting; but they also have an outdoor dining space.

We were staying in Ventura for a week, read about Petes and thought we give it a try. The 1st visit we had huevos rancheros and a Southwest special on the board. They were both excellent! Made with layers of delicious flavors, home-made salsa, excellent sides. We went later in the week ordered the same thing. Both were nothing like... More

I join other trip advisor reviewers in my strong recommendation for Pete's. We didn't have to wait long for a table outside on a beautiful, sunny day. Everything my friend and I ordered was yummy. She raved about her huevos rancheros and I thoroughly enjoyed my veggie patty with two eggs and potatoes. Our helpful waitress recommended I add jack... More

This is a favorite in Midtown Ventura and always busy on weekend mornings. Great food with daily specials. Very good pancakes. Breakfast deals for kids and seniors. Outdoor patio. Past winner of Drive-ins, Diners and Dives award. Very friendly staff. On site parking.

Everything is great, but the JAMS are the best thing ever. Order something that requires jam - biscuits, toast, muffins, the back of your hand... Delicious!!!!

Great place for breakfast, but get there early if you do not want to wait in line. Good portions, great food in a real hometown setting. I believe it is still cash only, was the last time we ate there.

It had been a few years since we had been to Pete's since we don't live in the area. We were hoping the quality and friendly service was still as we had remembered and we were not disappointed. Lucky for us the pumpkin pancakes were a special of the day and they were delicious.

Big menu w/a variety of egg, pancake, mexican-influenced dishes. Incredibly attentive and friendly service, and worth waiting if necessary. Not a huge place, has both indoor and a bit of outdoor seating. Small parking lot, and easy to miss if you are looking for a sign saying "Pete's". I'm going back!

Thank GinnieDK
