I have eaten ate this place since I was a kid. My cousins and I used to come here after school for hot dogs and fries and we STILL go and I live over 2 hours away out of state. Pete's has been a staple in this neighborhood since at least the 80's(not sure when they opened) and have been... More

If you like Italian beef this is the place to go, and I am surprised to say it. My wife and mother-in-law wanted a light dinner and I was craving for an authentic Italian beef so we went here. OMG! What a find. They ordered an Italian beef wet and sweet (sweet peppers with extra juice) I had hot and... More

Pete's is mostly carry out, though there are several booths along the front window. It is the typical type of Italian beef place that you find all over the Chicago area, but in few other locales in the country. It has a good, reasonably large menu, ranging from hot dogs to greek chicken dinners. I go there often and have... More

I always get cheese dogs and a chocolate shake. Their hot dogs and shakes aren't the best but are unique and I get a craving kinda like White Castle except better. Been going here forever and they never disappoint.

My SO and I were in Chicago this past weekend doing touristy stuff (visiting some great museums, checking out the architecture). As we were driving through Greek Town, I wanted a gyros sandwich in a bad way but we could not find a place to park on the street even after driving around for a half hour, so we decided... More

This is my go to hotdog place for the past 14 years and still counting! Best hot dogs, Italian beefs, gyros, and my favorite is the grilled chicken on pita. Small and outdated but it doesn't even matter because the food is amazing! If you are in the area and want good authentic Chicago style street food do NOT pass... More

My meal was quick, well cooked, and tasted great. The workers were very kind and polite. The food tasted as if it was freshly made.

If you want the best gyros this is the place to go. I have been going here since 1984 and it is still the best, and if you don't want a gyros they have a very large menu ( try their hamburger )

I tried this place on my way out of Chicago. Glad I stopped. The Hot dog was excellent. Fresh tomatoes and sport peppers... :) Happy Place!!! The fries were just Ok... but really... it is all about the dog. Stop if you get a chance! I will be back when I get back to Cicero.
