We drove by and stopped in. Were we surprised. What a great little burger shop. Better than any chain store. a little old fashion on the exterior. Service was great and food was yummmmy.

This is an old school burger joint and has a cool nostalgic feel to it. It's a bit run-down, but that adds to its authentic no-frills charm! I had a Mr Pete's burger that had Pastrami on it...sooo good! My son had a regular cheeseburger...More

We stopped in Mr Pete's for coffee and a cheap lunch and it was cheap. The place was kind of sketchy but the food was great and fresh. The service was exceptional!!!

Loved the food and perfectly priced! This is the first time that I have ever tried a chorizo burger and theirs did not disappoint. The store manager was really friendly too!

We stopped on the way from LAX to Carlsbad for a late breakfast. The chorizo and huevo burrito was great as well as huge. The fried zucchini sticks were so good we stopped 5 days later on the way back for more. Large food selection...More

We only tried Mr Pete's once. The burgers were ok. We are big In and Out eaters so we would rather drive 30 minutes then eat here again.

Loved the choices and I could try a differently topped burger every time I go. The fries (which I could only manage to eat half of because the portion is so huge) were crispy and hot. Great place!
