2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2012

On repeated visits eggs not quite cooked and refried beans partially cooked. Coffee dreadful.

“Nice local Spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2011

I like Pete's. When you finish eating, and look down at your plate - a big pile of nasty grease is not staring back at you. The seating is limited both inside and out. This is the kind of little spot for low key - low maintenance customers. If you are someone who has lots of needs and like an atmosphere that is very trendy, or up to date - you may want to skip Pete's. But the flavor is good - quac is pretty bland, but I toss in some salsa & love it. Remember where this is - it's a bit of a lunch spot for surfers, and beach goers, and down town employees. It is not a tourist trap, and offers no excitement. I really do like the food, though, and I like to support local businesses
