Original Pete's "Pizza * Pasta * Grill" was a restaurant which tried to be a "Jack of all trades, master of none". Their flyer reads "Our full service restaurant features: ... pizza...pasta...sandwiches...salads...beer & wine" "Dine-in * Take-out * Delivery". Their food was not underpriced: $3.49 for "Cheesy Garlic Bread", $8.49 for spaghetti. They even had a Tuesday & Wednesday pizza buffet.
It was replaced by a Panda Express.
The place is shut down —never to be reopened. I was an employee and eventually General Manager of the place from 2001-2003. Due to an change in ownership in 2003, the store went down hill and eventually closed in early 2004. There still are several locations in Sacramento. —JamesSchwab
2005-04-12 00:01:49 Soon after moving from Upstate NY, I ordered the hot wings at Pete's. I was shocked to get thickly batter fried wings with no sauce. The waiter claimed thats how they always serve them, and I accepted his word at first, figuring that this was the California perversion of Buffalo wings. I ate one or two, called the waiter over, and told him he was full of shit— there was nothing remotely hot about them, not even pepper! I then spoke to the manager, who was nice, and gave us two compimentary orders of something that vaguely resembled Buffalo Wings. —CraigBrozinsky
