Illegal Pete's

Colorado is known for its homegrown big-burrito chains. Illegal Pete's isn't the largest, but it's big on flavor, with a wide-ranging menu that includes everything from the standard chicken- and carnitas-based burritos to versions with fish or potatoes as the main event. The ingredients are all carefully balanced before the burrito is wrapped, ensuring that you won't get any bites of just rice or only sour cream. The casual atmosphere might lure you into sticking around for one more beer; while this South Broadway location was the first, it's no surprise that each and every Illegal Pete's outpost is a favorite hangout for somebody.
