Locals recommended this place to us, but, unfortunately, our experience wasn't great. We waited a very long time to be served, and our food was just mediocre when it did arrive. There were not enough waiters for the number of patrons.

We went Pete's for a meal and ordered our meal. After receiving the meal ,the waitress left us and proceed to fix other jobs and did not ask if we wanted additional drinks. Until we got ready to leave,then we were asked for any additional food or drinks. Note this happened on two different occasions.

First time here. In for breakfast on Sunday at 9. Very busy but servers are right on point. Good menu and prices. 2 eggs scrambled with patty sausage and a large biscuit smothered with " house made " sausage gravy. Gravy needed more sausage and whole plate should have been much hotter. This seems to be a problem with restaurants... More

Really enjoyed the breakfast itself with good portions and the prices are very reasonable. The service was good, the servers could smile a bit more and be a little more friendly. A smile goes a long way.☺️ the only reason I didn't give four stars was that I saw the server dropping the bread for toast with no gloves. The... More

Petes is the only current sit down restaurant in Carthage that offers breakfast, lunch and dinner. Breakfast has generous portions with incredibly tasty biscuits (limited number available-only for Breakfast) and generic coffee. Lunch and dinner offer many selections ranging from lasagna, spaghetti, burgers, fried chicken, fried fish on weekends, salads and more. Petes is possibly the 'best' for overall selection... More

We stopped in for breakfast and Pete's didn't disappoint. Very friendly and attentive staff. We want to go back and try the Pastitsio. Lots of great veggies too.

Petes has an extensive menu. Something for everyone. Burgers and pot pie are good. Service is excellent . I would give it another star if their vegetables were better. Most tast like they came out of a can. Their specials are good. Look at their board wen entering. Good variety of deserts. Breakfest is excellent.
