Illegal Pete's is now legal on East Evans Avenue

Illegal Pete's, home of the fat fish burrito, has just opened its sixth location at 1744 East Evans Avenue, a textbook's toss from the University of Denver campus. Like its other outposts, the fast-casual coastal Mexican, whose beer-battered fish filets (and counter staff that mixes up your burrito ingredients) have made the joint somewhat of a local phenom, is open Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and on Friday and Saturday until 2:30 a.m. Best thing about the joint? It has a full bar.
