Finally, my last restaurant review from our trip out to the Sacramento and Lake Tahoe areas a month ago. Before flying out the next morning, we enjoyed dinner on a Friday night at Pete’s Restaurant & Brewhouse in El Dorado Hills, California. Our friends who now live nearby had visited this restaurant before and thought that we would enjoy it. Our two-year-old was given a ball of fresh dough to play with and keep him entertained, so we were definitely off to a great start.

Pete's Famous Knots

Pete’s Famous Knots

We started with a couple orders of Pete’s famous knots ($6.99 per full dozen). Pete’s famous pizza dough is tied, baked and tossed in a garlic butter glaze, then topped with fresh Parmesan cheese. We had one order as just described and we had the other order with cinnamon sugar glaze. I preferred the cheese version, but both were pretty good. I realize that Parmesan cheese may not be the easiest cheese to melt, but it would have been nice if it melted on the knots.

Pizza

Pizza

Our group decided to split a large pizza with two different halves (signature pizzas starting at $24.49 for a large). We tried BBQ chicken on one half and pepperoni and sausage on the other. The crust was very good. The sauces were average. The toppings were overall pretty good, but I think an extra ingredient on the BBQ chicken would have been nice to accompany the red onion and cilantro, bacon is always a good choice.

Pete’s offers a pretty good selection of beers, but despite the name,┬áno beer is brewed on site. The pizza was good, though I think next time I would try a sandwich instead.
