Pete's Place literally began life as "Pete's Place," the home of Pietro Piegari, who took the name of "Pete Prichard" as a young man, working in the local mines. After a mine accident injured one of his legs, Prichard turned his focus to making Choc beer and wine in his home, serving it to the local workers. Eventually, he started cooking for visitors who came to drink the beer and wine, and naturally, they called it "Pete's Place."

Prichard eventually ran afoul of the law for making alcohol during Prohibition, and he served time in prison. There are newspaper articles on the restaurant wall indicating that he was beloved by all in prison due to his abilities as a cook, and they were sorry to see him go upon his release! At one point, he was cooking for area POWs, which was a challenge due to not having knives around for the prisoners to use to eat.

Today, Pete's grandson and his family run the Pete's Place that generations have known and loved. Meals are served family-style, and most of the time, diners will enjoy their own private dining room. The base meal includes all-you-can-eat ravioli, spaghetti, cheese, salad, and rolls. Optionally, you can add lamb, chicken, pork loin, lasagna, chicken/shrimp alfredo, chicken parmigiana, steaks, and sausage from local Lovera's Market. They also have a children's menu and an entree-only lunch menu featuring favorites from the dinner menu. They serve several of their own beers, as well as wine and liquor from the Choc Room.
