​In 1978, Pete’s Tako House was established by Pete Rios and Dora “Kookie” Rios-Torres. Prior to being Pete’s, we began as a Tink-A-Tako in 1977. Alex “Tink” Halsell later sold it to Dora at a very friendly price after helping establish quite a few other restaurants around town and being a family friend as well. We kept the Kin “Tako” in order to honor Tink for giving our family the opportunity to build what many have come to love. Our original place on Main Ave. was open for 33 years until we decided to relocate to our new location on Brooklyn Ave. We have many great memories, but one that stands out was in September of 1987 when Pope John Paul II passed by in the “Popemobile”, which we feel blessed to have had the chance to witness. We eventually outgrew the walls though and wanted to offer a better experience to our loyal customers, and at the same time make new friends along the way. We will continue to bring our special recipes and homemade corn and flour tortillas that everyone has come to know and love but are now able to offer an expanded menu that we hope you will enjoy. You all have grown along with us like family. Some customers come by to just say “Hello”, that’s how family-oriented we’ve become.
