The place was pretty packed but we waited the 20minutes to be seated with coffees outside so that made it easier. Home of the famous chorizo burger. Fast service, good simple food, close casual interior.

Great breakfast and Very quick service even though it was crowded.. It reminded me of the place I ate 50 years ago. It was a whole lot of nostalgia. You know its good when the locals pack it in. It was very busy

Love, Love, Love this place! Food is excellent, friendly staff, and food comes out quickly. The location attracts lots of locals. Weekends expect to wait for a table, but in my opinion it's worth the wait.

We were in ventura and were ready for breakfast. Thankfully TripAdvisor mentioned Pete's. It certainly isnt fancy, probably more locals that touristy but the food was amazing. We had to wait about 10 minutes but it was well worth it. Coffee was the best, and...More

I'm not sure, looks like first come first served. I'd call and check--especially for a larger group they would probably take a reservation. Very customer service oriented.
