Illegal Pete’s Serves up Fresh and Delicious Mexican Food

If you’re in search of a restaurant that has a broad menu that features fresh, delicious food, then Illegal Pete’s is the breakfast, lunch, or dinner spot for you. Illegal Pete’s has many locations in Colorado, but the one closest to Littleton is the one located on Evans near the campus of the University of Denver.

Illegal Pete’s serves up incredible Mexican food, and it’s menu is much more than just burritos (like many other popular Mexican restaurants). Their menu features burritos, quesadillas, taquitos, tacos, and much more- they also offer gluten-free and vegetarian options.

Not only is Illegal Pete’s known for their delicious food, but also for how fresh their food is. All of their meats are all-natural, and everything at the restaurant is consistently fresh.

If you’re planning on going to Illegal Pete’s, I would strongly recommend trying the chips and queso to accompany your meal. The chips are house-made and  always fresh and warm and the queso is incredible. But in terms of looking for your actual meal, I couldn’t just recommend one specific thing. The entire menu is delicious and caters to any palate, so order whatever sounds good- the entire thing is delicious!
