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; it's no surprise that each and every Illegal Pete's outpost is a favorite hangout for somebody. The Pearl Street location of this Boulder-based burrito institution operates with a functional liquor license and has become a popular hangout for the post-college and thirty-something crowd. Take a seat at the corner bar and order a Bohemia or house margarita -- or sit outside on the patio, which wraps around the building and onto the Pearl Street Mall. Laid-back and mellow (it is, after all, mostly a restaurant) -- Illegal Pete's has a more relaxed atmosphere than some of the rowdier Pearl Street watering holes -- and it serves one of the best mission-style burritos in Colorado.
