Description: We celebrate humanity. We celebrate individuality. We celebrate relationships and connections. And most importantly we celebrate every human's need for tasty food, stiff drinks and good times. Well, maybe it's not a need, but it's certainly a want. Either way, it's our desire to make each illegal pete's location the kind of place where you can go to celebrate more with other humans.

“Tasty Green Chile Soup Special”
Reviewed December 14, 2012 via mobile

Ate there with three other people about 1245 on a Friday. There was a line which progressed quickly. I ordered the special, a green chili soup which was nicely spiced. I also ordered a chicken taco on a corn tortillla. Flour tortillas are also available. All was excellent. Tables are very close together & turn over relatively quickly. The music is good. Food preparers we're good listeners, seeking clarification when necessary.

“Like a dive bar, it's a dive burrito joint”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

I always try to eat here whenever I'm on the Front Range. Their burrito joint is kind of a dive, but that is exactly the allure of this place. The burritos are great and made with plenty of wholesome ingredients. If you judge food not only by how it tastes, but also how it settles, Illegal Pete's burritos don't fill you with heartburn regrets. Also, I appreciate any restaurant that can add heat without sacrificing flavor. Illegal Pete's does that and well!

“Burrito Heaven”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

The best burritos in Boulder. Try the kid sized burrito for a smaller meal. You can also get a burrito in a bowl without the tortilla for those gluten-free folks.

“A local version of Qdoba”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

We ate here while on vacation, and while the burritos were tasty and filling, we didn't think they were any better than Qdoba. Similar in price, as well.
