Just go there. What a great place to relax and have some great food. Weather you are sitting at the bar with friends or having dinner with the family, a good time is always had by all. The thin crust pizza cannot be beat. The food and the prices will never disappoint. Just go there.

Come to Pete and Elda's every chance I get usually once a week. Had been down in So. Carolina all through January and when I was looking for good fast bar food all I could think about was the pie here. Got home just the other day and am heading there tonight .

Best thin pizza around. I have had a lot of pizza but this is my favorite. Antipasto salad chopped is also exceptionally Sunday's at the baris happy hours when we were there at noon. Friendly service. When you are at the bar to order food you stand your menu up

I don't see why others say this place is so wonderful. Pizza is average and crust is like cardboard. Also have found floors always dirty or not well maintained. Yet people wait in the summer.

Visited this pizza place with my family. The place was very crowded and loud but we sat at the bar and enjoyed one of the 12 tap beers. We ordered a very large pizza, wings and zucchini appetizers. The wings have several types of sauces and the pizza is super thin. I think its as thin as a wrap and... More

Second try to get in was the charm This place is loaded with locals and for good reason If you think new haven ct has thin crust you've been wrong This is wafer thin with good cheese and pleasant sauce What a great taste since the bread is at a minimum You'll wait for a while but don't leave belly...

A local restaurant/bar than is very popular. Often very crowded with a wait for a table. I always just watch for an opening at the bar. The entire place is tight and not spacious with small tables packed in for a neighborly dining experience. The bar is also close to the wall demanding a 'sideways-shuffle' to navigate. Aside from the... More

We live about 45 minutes away from Pete and Elda's and this is the only place we go to sit down to eat pizza. It is clearly the best thin crust pizza we have ever eaten. We've gone to some of the other shore area places and they do not compare in any way. I remember one of the waitresses... More
