Pete's was recommended to us by a guard at the musuem. He said it was great, and he didn't lie. They had pizza, stromboli, and a selection of different Philly cheesesteaks. There was a blackboard with some daily specials too. The guard said their burgers were very good too, but being in Philly we had to try the cheesesteak for... More

A great choice where you can enjoy having a good time with family and friends. Just what a nice time out is all about. You will enjoy the variety on their menu. Gene P. Coplay, PA

We visited Philadelphia in January and walked a lot visiting museums, and the most important sites of this great city. A few blocks away from the Franklin Museum we found Pete's Famous Restaurant which delighted us with an excellent service. The food was delicious as we ordered spaghetti carbonara, with two garlic bread, my son ordered a cheese burger and... More

Simply the best stromboli you will ever eat. We get the chicken with onions & mushrooms--and substitute broccoli for green peppers. Fantastic comfort food!!

Cute little pizza joint with yummy pizza (crisp crust, nice sauce) & great service. However, if you're not used to buffalo spice, stay away from the buffalo chicken fries! Two of us couldn't finish more than 1/2 the order because they were so spicy. But, they have a few different kinds of fries on the menu which also look delicious.... More

Stopped here after visiting ESP and before heading home. Most of us got the cheesesteak with fries and slaw. One got a small meat lover's pizza. All was delicious. Pizza was loaded with toppings. It was so much food that we took leftovers home and had them for dinner. Cheesesteak was very well seasoned and had a lot of meat-they... More

We had spent several hours at the Philadelphia Art Museum and were walking to the Eastern State Penetentiary and wandered past this little pizza place. They were very friendly and not too busy, being a little late for normal lunch time and Thanksgiving week. The place only has about 8 or 10 tables, and several people came for take out... More

The ingredients of the pizza tasted and looked very fresh, which I truly liked but for me personally, as great as it looked, it seemed to be missing some flavor to take it over the top. Maybe it was just my topping choices. Either way, kudos for using fresh ingredients.

A nice neighborhood place, right off of Logan Square, is worth the walk. It is small, maybe 75 people can be seated, but the menu is expansive and covers pretty much anything you might want to eat in Philadelphia or anywhere else. It offers pizza, Stromboli, burgers, the ubiquitous Cheese Steak and everything in-between. The pizza was thin crust with... More

We dropped in for a quick lunchtime snack and shared a 10" pizza - combining two flavors. The pizza base was perfectly thin and the dough particularly well made with a great flavor - toppings good too. Surroundings are a bit jaded, but nothing to complain about. Altogether a good all round experience, I would definitely recommend, especially if your... More
