AAA Inspector Notes
Historic. Rumored to be the city's oldest fully operating tavern, this has long been a favorite hang-out for locals hankering for a burger, some beers or an inexpensive steak. Clearly, most patrons overlook the décor (or have come to love it) because it probably hasn't changed much since Prohibition, which, by the way, didn't slow Pete's down. The booze still flowed, and literati of all sorts, including O. Henry, spent a great deal of time sharing and writing stories over an illicit libation.
