Illegal Pizza

Map & Directions 3109 N. Federal
Denver, CO 80211


Westword's Description

Illegal Pizza, which opened in 2013 on Federal Boulevard, focuses on a well-made crust: blistered on the edges, lightly crisped underneath, and pleasantly chewy throughout. As at its predecessor, Pizza Public, the menu offers topping combinations named for neighborhood streets and landmarks: Highland, 38th, Zuni, Viking (after North High School's mascot), and even Hooker (a tarted-up Margherita, if you will). Some oddball combos, like the apple-and-Brie Lowell, the cheeseburger-inspired Grove, and the Buffalo-chicken-and-bleu-cheese Speer, work because of a light touch with the stronger ingredients and solid foundation of dough and sauce. Reasonable prices on food and beer along with generous wine pours add up to a fun and unpretentious addition to the neighborhood.

    This place is a great spot for a drink during their happy hour from 4 pm - 7 pm every day of the week.

I think the pizza is great as well, some very interesting specialties like a green chile... More >>

    Read a few reviews and decided to try this place. I gotta say that I'm pretty hard on restaurants and pizza in particular. That said, I begrudgingly have to tip my hat to this place. It's the quintessential "don't judge a book by its cover" kind of place. The exterior and parking lot look downright ghetto, but the second you open the front door, you realize that the owners spent... More >>

    Carry out is the way to go. Service is super slow & waitress is a bit clueless. It was clear she forgot to put in our order, but then didn't offer to comp anything to make up for the long wait.

    Service was horrible. I got chased out by the bartender trying to explain the incorrect bill. The meat pizza was good though. The rolls swim in oil.
