This is hands down some of the best Pizza in Philly (and probably beyond). Every pie is made fresh to order. If pizza isn't what you're looking for, they have a full menu of so many amazing other things to try, from perfect French Fries to amazing Milkshakes with REAL ice cream, to filling and comforting pasta dishes. Delivery, take out, or dining in, you can't go wrong with this place.

This was a really nice, cozy little pizza shop. Really like the vibe here. Our waitress was really kind and friendly. The burgers were juicy, the fries were crispy, the pizza was cheesy and the salad was so fresh. The food was delicious here. Good size portions and not too pricey. Will definitely come back!

Pete’s Pizza is a must for anyone who loves pizza. On this trip four separate slices in three boroughs in NYC and then Pete’s. The best, right out of the oven. Staff made the experience even better, the original building. Very cool.

Eloquently Speaking About Pete's Famous Pizza The Food Is Delicious! I ordered a turkey club and it was very fresh, the bacon and lettuce was crisp, the tomatoes were juicy and the turkey was very tender. It reminded me of old school turkey clubs when you used to sit at the counters hanging out with your friends after school. The hot wings were awesome with the blue cheese and the fries were perfectly cooked. I highly recommend it, they are friendly and you get your money's worth! Enjoy! Tell them that Eloquently Speaking sent you!
