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!

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

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

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.
