    Need some quick Mexican grub to go, or want a quick lunch? This is your spot. They've got beer too, you can't go wrong with a burrito from Illegal Pete's. They run 4SQ specials too!

    Get the reverse nachos! Bowl filled with whatever you want (rice, beans, veggies) & smothered in queso, topped with any salsas, cheese, jalapeños & sour cream you want. Chips are served on the side.

    Get the small breakfast bowl. It's like 3 bucks if you work downtown and is deceptively almost as big as the standard bowl. Bacon, chorizo, green chile. Best bfast value in town.

    Have tried the fish tacos, carnitas quesadilla and the carnitas nachos. All were yummy! Good eats that don't take a chunk from your wallet.

    Here is the best thing you can get. Not on the menu. Chicken burrito bowl w/ black beans, smother it with veggie chili, cheese on top, then 2 scoops of corn, finished with lightly sprinkle of onions.

    Best burrito you'll ever have. Take that to the bank. They even mix the burrito ingredients so you'll never get that mouth full of sour cream again!

    They're Colorado local and it's quick, good Mexican. The line proves their popularity. My favorite is their burrito bowl with brown rice and all the toppings you desire.

    Chicken Buritto Bowl was awesome! If you’re going to a concert or a game bring in your ticket stub for a free beer!

    Sure, Chipotle started here and QDobas are everywhere...but this local shop is a much better burrito option. Watch as they mix the ingredients at the end, ensuring every bite is awesome!

    This is a great place, ask for Jen. She basically makes my food for free and I don't even pay her. It's awesome to never have a grasp of responsibility!

    Okay, look. Pete’s doesn’t serve hooch. So why go? Simple. It’s the best place to hit the morning after bender. One of their burrito bowls smothered in green chili will put you back among the living.

    Chicken nachos plus potatoes and all the toppings is the only way to go.

    Chicken Quesadilla with red peppers is great. Come early or later because lunch hour lines are out the door.

    The portion was a little smaller than a qdoba or a chipotle. Margaritas made me kind of sick. I would skip this place if anyone tells you it's a 'must have'.

    For me the kids size is just about perfect. Add chips and a drink and it's about the same price as the big burritos.

    They do not offer student drinks and sometimes their burritos are a little small so I suggest a burrito bowl if you are super hungry

    The "Big Fish" (fried fish, beans and rice + whatever), delicious but formidable, comes in a more manageable kids' size.

    Get the "gambler". It's not on the menu. Its basically just the addition of spicy mayo but it's super delicious.

    Careful, if they are running low on chicken and you ask for double, you still get single but pay for double. Awesome.
