This place WAS iconic, and SO very, very much better when Gus Pieters started it decades ago. Prices have gone up significantly in the last year. Overcharged for a shake today in spite of extremely clear signage. When I asked for a correction TWO servers...More

We’ve been going to Peter’s for years. Even through ownership changes, the food is unique and good. Line-ups are long when it’s warm, but fall and winter are slower. Big servings (although not as big as years ago). If you want to try something uniquely...More
