Reviewed 29 August 2012

Use to visit Pete's on a regular basis. He could prepare them so, hold a conversation w/you and make you feel that you are the only customer in the world.

“End of an Era”
Reviewed 4 July 2011

Unfortunately, Gus - who ran the place since 1948 - died this year, and it hasn't been opened back up. I heard that the other family members weren't interested or able to keep it open... Gus came to work everyday and in fact worked the day he died and was found in his home. Unfortunately, I only went once with my dad when I was younger.
