Probably the busiest restaurant in Ventura as evidenced by the line waiting to get in. What's the reason? Great food at reasonable prices. Breakfast and lunch only but worth the wait.

Great service, everybody was so friendly. Make sure you order some biscuits so you can enjoy their homemade jam. The dining room is nothing fancy but nice and clean. I can't wait to go back!

Pete's was on Diners, Drive Inns and Dives which peaked our interest. It's a local restaurant that draws crowds of local people because they know it's good food. Breakfast all day. Delicious. Always a wait but its worth it. The building is old, the tables are old but the place is great. Worth looking for. The pancakes are sweet.

I've come to eat at Petes every weekend now. I've never had a bad meal. The only complaint I have is the long lines to get in usually. I guess that's a good thing. But consistently great food and all staff on the ball. (Try the special omelette-top notch)

I will keep this short because I get really hungry just thinking about it. Order the chorizo burger and make your day.

Very efficient service for breakfast: you put your name on the list and they move people through quickly enough that the wait isn't long. Coffee was very good, refills were plentiful. I had french toast, DH had the Italian sausage breakfast. Both were very good.

A classic breakfast diner! Everything you could want for a hearty start to the day. Busy with a real buzz and fast service! All that and Pete was born in Halifax UK- ten miles from our home in Rochdale England....small world!

Atmosphere is definitely "Dive", but the rest is wonderful, best omelet I have ever had! Best biscuit as well.
