  "You never know what treasure you’ll find at the Wentzville Flea Market, considered by many to be the best flea market in the state. But no trip to Wentzville Flea Market is complete without a stop to Pete’s Drive In, one of the best treasures of all! This landmark eatery in Wentzville, MO has survived the influx of the fast food chains just down the road and there’s a good reason why. The secret to the restaurant’s longevity is the consistent quality of homemade country cooking at its best and the friendly atmosphere.

  "Pete’s Drive In began 41 years ago as the old A&W Drive In. Wanting to offer his unique style and not become a soulless franchised restaurant, Pete dropped his franchise with A&W in 1996. After a fire in 1972, the establishment was revamped to include indoor dining but continues to provide the convenience of car hop service, a real classic touch of Americana for customers ordering food to-go. Just pull up to the speaker that displays the full menu board and soon a friendly waitress will deliver your delicious country meal. And if you slip her a little tip you’ll get a big smile!" ~ Inside St. Louis
