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 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.
I’m addicted to their burritos. It’s out of control. Easily one of my favorites -- in my top five for sure. I always go for the chicken burrito. It’s open late night so you can take your party here, get a burrito and feel better in the morning. There is something about it. You get to pick everything you want on your burrito, and then at the end, they take this spoon and mix it all together in the tortilla, so every bite has everything in it. It’s so good!
With black beans, rice, house hot salsa, sour cream, cheese, lettuce, jalapenos, olives and cilantro. Fish taco on the side, light on the pico. I just described a perfect meal. Unfortunatelly you can't have this delicious meal if you're watching your figure haha!!
The full size burrito can be too big, so order the kids size (perfect for a girls figure) because you can load it up with all the good stuff and you won't be hungry or stuffed when done. Open late on the weekends for apres bar munchies. Plus it is on the walk home for me :) And the sopapillas are killer good!
