We arrived at about half hour to closing, the staff were welcoming and helpful. The food was plain, wholesome and not junk food. We really enjoyed it.

We were tired and hungry and Pete's Place fit the bill for 2 small boys and my sister and I. Generous portions, all made to order. The chicken fried steak was fried to perfection, the steamed veggies were perfectly done and salad was very large. The boys both had burgers which were perfect for kids, but not real fancy. This...

Pete never disappoints with his level of service and the quality of his food. I always try to visit once a week for our family dinners and never once have I been disappointed. He always offers a variety when it comes to something filling or light. You won't regret your visit.

Atmosphere is nonexistent, Food is good. Well prepared and served timely. nothing stands out on the menu that makes this extraordinary. Its a safe bet from the burgers to the sandwiches. I have been here about 10 times in the last few years and everything is solid and can recommend coming here for lunch.

The day we visited Pete's it was nearly 100 degrees outside & when we entered the restaurant it seemed significantly hotter. They have a wide variety of generally good food. We decided to order to go & the staff was very friendly & helpful to us. Your choices in Exeter are limited but I would recommend Pete's as take out... More

The food & service are excellent, but the building is too cramped & hot! The have an amazing club sandwich, the hamburger & fries are great too. The owner/chef is very friendly & makes you feel welcome. Don't go during school lunch hour, too busy!

What a wonderful little surprise! My friend introduced me to this restaurant this week and it was delicious!! Their burgers are to die for and so are their salads.

I'll keep this simple. I live and work in Exeter. I eat at Pete's at least three times every week. Everything is good. The speed is often surprising given it is always freshly cooked (just a few feet away.) The quality is always good. The place is fairly small and fills up at noon - time your lunch visit a... More

I met a friend here for lunch, she had been there before, I hadn't, They were not busy at all, but it was after 1:00 pm. The waiter was attentive. I had the lunch burger special and was disappointed. They did offer several side options with the burger, which was nice. I got the salad, the cucumber was sour, had... More
