Love Pete's naked breakfast burrito smothered in veggie green chili! Always a good time and the service to always spot on.

Ok you may have to consider the source on this review - I HATE the taste of dill pickles, and would usually ask in advance any time I think they are at risk of touching any of my food, but who would have thought anyone would put a dill pickle spear next to a gyros?! Gyros was just ok, below... More

The gyro plate was AMAZING! Had the lemon chicken and rice soup as well. It was delicious as well! Healthy portions, if you go home hungry it's your own fault! The price is right and won't break the bank! The staff was very friendly and did everything in a quick manner. The autographs and pictures of the notables that visit... More

I went to try the Gyro Omelet. The meat was plentiful, hash browns as well. The feta was lacking, you could hardly taste any. They were having a special on the omelet today, only $7.75, that was a nice surprise. Regular price $9.95.

We always order the breakfast burrito at Pete's and do so st least once when in Denver. Just a good hearty meal at a comfortable no fuss diner. Expect large portions and friendly staff.

Thought this place would be fun to,check out while visiting. The food wasn't very good, had breakfast, and the wait staff not all that friendly. Don't recommend.

This is one of those neighborhood diners that EVERYONE goes to. It is small and the line is out the door and down the street. I'm not sure why.... the food wasn't great, good but not great.

We had lunch at Pete's Kitchen. I was not impressed and did not really enjoy the meal or the restaurant. Had a French Dip sandwich - no flavor and very disappointing. The restaurant was EXTREMELY crowded and loud. I would strongly recommend looking elsewhere for lunch.

Thank BudDiver
