A classic breakfast diner! Everything you could want for a hearty start to the day. Busy with a real buzz and fast service! All that and Pete was born in Halifax UK- ten miles from our home in Rochdale England....small world!

Atmosphere is definitely "Dive", but the rest is wonderful, best omelet I have ever had! Best biscuit as well.

This place was featured on that Guy Fieri show on the Food Network--but don't hold that against Pete's. It's not a fancy building. The food is pretty standard breakfast fare, but it is tasty and consistent. This is evidenced by the line of people waiting for tables on weekends.

We live in Houston and every time we are in town we eat here at least twice! I personally have been eating at Pete's for 40 years now. Still just as good and the portions are just as big as ever. Go hungry is all I can say. Great food always!

At last we made it to this little diner! There's nothing special about the decor, but the food does shine. I enjoyed the fresh roasted turkey club and my husband absolutely loved the chorizo burger. It's worth the stop.

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
