Service is just getting worse and worse over time- used to go in a lot- can barely stand the thought of going there now....drunk staff with ratty clothes really look like they just came off of a week long bender,don't want them preparing my food. Can't get a drink at the bar...good luck with that- and when you can get someones attention, they don't seem to know how to make a simple mixed drink. Should be closed soon, at least at this location

I got introduced to Illegal's as a student in Boulder and have been a fan every since. They have more variety and much better, distinct tasting ingredients than both Chipotle and Qdoba. They are quick, delicious and you get a lot of quality food for next to nothing. I love their burritos and nachos, and their quac is also amazing. My only complaint is that I have skipped running in to grab a quick burrito to go because I couldn't find parking at their downtown location. They have a location on E Evans that is much more convenient for to go orders if you live in SE Denver.

Pros: Cool atmosphere, happy hour, food

Cons: Parking

Vibe is better than any corporate version, but the food isn't. I like to get a chicken fajita burrito, but the peppers at Pete's are always overcooked and soggy. Also they don't use any red peppers.

However the really bad thing about this location of Pete's is the rotten eggs/sewer smell that can permeate the place. It is hit or miss, but sometimes you really don't want to linger.

But the beer is cheap and the bar staff is always friendly and fast - great place for happy hour when it doesn't stink and there are plenty of other places to get food in the same area.

Better than Chipotle, Qdoba, or any other corporate version of the good ole' fashioned big burrito joint. I like to get the steak and potato burrito...it takes a little longer but it is worht the wait. get it smothered and you are in for a treat. Good value and if you are 21 you can get a brew to go along with your entree!

A great place to eat. There burritos, quesadillas and salsas are great! All of the food and service is wonderful. This restaurant is kind of like Chipotle but adds it's own "flair" to the food. I would highly recommend this place!

Illegal Pete's always is a fun place to go. They have great, cheap food. I like to bring lots of friends there for a great time, any time. Their salsa is spicy and delicious.

Time of visit: Saturday, March 10, 2007 at 7:00 p.m., ate meal at the restaurant.
Pros: friendly and prompt service; order accurately and timely prepared; fresh ingredients and nice flavoring in chicken (not overly salted like Chipotle's).
Cons: chicken in my burrito was well-prepared and nicely seasoned, but COLD; floor next to the soda and condiments island was dirty and littered; although the restaurant was not busy at all and one employee sat at the bar when there were no customers in the food line, no staff cleaned up the debris around the soda island and no staff walked through the restaurant to check cleanliness or orderliness of tables, chairs and floors; one kitchen staff was shaking rubber floor mats and mopping floor close to the food service area but none of the food was covered during this operation.
Recommend: management and service team with some focused dedication; not a great over-all value, so I would not recommend this restaurant to a friend.
