This is an old school burger joint and has a cool nostalgic feel to it. It's a bit run-down, but that adds to its authentic no-frills charm! I had a Mr Pete's burger that had Pastrami on it...sooo good! My son had a regular cheeseburger and he liked it a lot . If you want a down and dirty burger,... More

We stopped in Mr Pete's for coffee and a cheap lunch and it was cheap. The place was kind of sketchy but the food was great and fresh. The service was exceptional!!!

I usually go to Mr. Pete's for the Chili but my wife and I stopped in for breakfast and were pleasantly surprised. The All American for $6.25 is a real bargain. Three eggs, 4 rashers of bacon or three good sized link sausages, hash browns, and your choice of toast. The eggs were fresh everything was cooked to our specifications.... More

Like fries with that burger?? Yes--they are the best. They have been cooking burgers and fries, making milk shakes and a list of many other burger restaurant items to tempt you. Everything is cooked from scratch..Lots of seating indoors and out. Lots of parking .A go to whenever I crave a burger.

Loved the food and perfectly priced! This is the first time that I have ever tried a chorizo burger and theirs did not disappoint. The store manager was really friendly too!

We stopped on the way from LAX to Carlsbad for a late breakfast. The chorizo and huevo burrito was great as well as huge. The fried zucchini sticks were so good we stopped 5 days later on the way back for more. Large food selection and pleasant staff. Well worth a visit.

We only tried Mr Pete's once. The burgers were ok. We are big In and Out eaters so we would rather drive 30 minutes then eat here again.

Loved the choices and I could try a differently topped burger every time I go. The fries (which I could only manage to eat half of because the portion is so huge) were crispy and hot. Great place!

We stopped here after driving from Las Vegas. It was the only thing open on a Wednesday night......so glad we did! The burgers were AWESOME! The onion rings tasted good but were actually too crunchy. I know, weird but true. Kinda hurt my mouth. I would definitely stop by again!
