Neon Pancake Flipper

Check hours if you hope to eat at Pete's Kitchen. For decades they were open 24/7, but they have now trimmed hours somewhat. Genuine diner fare. The re-modeled restaurant that is kitty-corner across the intersection is humorously named Illegal Petes.

It has to be illegal because it doesn't have a neon pancake flipper sign like Pete's Kitchen.

Plenty of parking at Pete's Kitchen, but always full as it shares with another long term business next door. Friendly folks!
