We stopped in here to grab a bite to eat before heading over to Balboa Island for ice cream. Quick service - we had 2 slices of pizza and a large drink I believe - I should have ordered the special instead I ended up paying more than expected. Pizza was really good - something about pizza close to an... More

My husband and I stopped here for a snack. I had a slice of pizza and my husband ordered a hot dog. We also had two sodas. Total price was 15.12. The restaurant is small and centrally located. Food was delicious and we were able to receive our food quite quickly. Would return.

Pizza is ok, New York Style. Nice to pop in for a quick slice as you are moving along the area. Wife had a salad that she thought was good.

Used to love going here after junior guards. Good deals, good pizza, good location, and friendly staff.

I have definitely had better pizza, but it was open early and service was great. Considering my whale watching boat was leaving in a few minutes, Pete's had pizza by the slice and ready to go. Unimpressive, but decent quick service and location help it a lot.

Smelled amazing as we walked along the Balboa fun zone so we stopped. The employees were nice. Place was a little stuffy inside but clean. The pizza was just ok. Not the worst I've had, but certainly not something I'd go back for again. The root-beer float was tasty. Movie was playing on the big screen for the kids so... More

My hubby bought a orange cream float. It came in a 16 oz cup. There was about 2 inches of ice cream, 2 inches of orange soda, and 4 inches if foam. When he removed the foam, he had half a cup of float for $6. What a rip off!

Mostly pizza, some sandwiches, and drinks. This is a quick takeaway or sit down anywhere type eatery on the bay front. The pizza is actually pretty bad, so only stop in a pinch if you just have a few coins to spare and are terribly famished. Recharge quickly and find a better spot. Note that the building does have some... More

We stopped in to get a quick piece of pizza on our way to whale watching. There were a few people in the restaurant who all had their food except for the one guy at the counter asking for his. There was a lot of chaos behind the counter for there being no line and no one waiting for food... More
