Very poor pizza -- soggy, crust, too much sauce. Been ordering for 30 years. Very bad night for pizza maker.

Went (luckily) at pizza power hour (4-6pm weekdays) so got a 10 inch pizza for $5. Absolutely delicious!! Staff were beyond lovely. Decor is a little rough around the edges but still really great.

Great pizza and garlic knots! While visiting a friend in Philly, we ordered delivery one night and it arrived within the timeframe they gave and was just as we ordered. The pizza itself was a 14” feast and had great flavor and crust! Definitely trying...More

Stopped for some pizza after visiting the eastern state penitentiary. Took a little while to get our pizza but the staff was very friendly. The pies were good and we would stop by if in the area again.

I really like the dough they make their pizza on. Service for delivery is pretty quick. Pete's Pizza Special is awesome.

Great food for cheap. A nice short walk from art museum. Also every Wednesday is $5 small pizza which is a great deal!

$3 beer, $16.95 four course eggplant parm. Come on, gotta go. Al Fresco dining was great, but you share your meal with the sparrows, and body with the skeeters. Incredible prices, food isn't gourmet, but wholesome. 5 minute walk from Art Museum.

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...More

We parked in the lot beside ESP and visited both places. Some street parking near Pete's if I remember but the parking lot was the easiest and most convenient for both.
