Illegal Pete’s – Yelp Review of the Week

Illegal Pete’s – Yelp Review of the Week

Illegal Pete’s is located at 1530 16th St., Ste 101, Denver, CO. At Illegal Pete’s they celebrate humanity. They celebrate individuality. They celebrate relationships and connections. And most importantly they 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 their desire to make each Illegal Pete’s location the kind of place where you can go to celebrate humanity with other humans.

With 270+ reviews on Yelp, here were some of the most helpful:  

Marc A. from Denver, CO says: “Since Pete opened an Illegals over on Broadway and Alameda, that’s my local spot, but I still love stopping by for pre-work breakfast or post-work micheladas / margaritas downtown.  Plus, the staff here are the bomb.  Downtown Pete’s is much more gritty and authentic than the other locations in my opinion.  And the fish tacos are somehow a little better than the Broadway joint.  Anyway, the food is always good & fresh and the drinks are strong and plentiful every time we stop by.”  

Zandra K. from Denver, CO says: “I’ve had the pleasure of eating at this particular Illegal Pete’s many times now after some hard but fun games of ultimate frisbee at Commons Park, which is less than a mile walk from Illegal Pete’s on 16th Street. It is especially rewarding to come here and munch down since I have always been greeted and served by hard-working jovial staff. The last time I ate here I exchanged compliments with an employee who rolled up my vegetarian burrito, and the same fellow noticed a tear in my burrito wrap and pointed it out to me, motivating him to ask me if I want my burrito re-wrapped! I don’t like to waste food so I declined, but it was still so delicious and the aluminum wrap around the burrito was enough to hold the tear in the burrito together 😀 Although I’ve only ordered the vegetarian burrito, it is amazing!! The veggies and beans and guacamole and cilantro have always been fresh, and I feel very welcomed in the restaurant – they also have Jarritos Mexican soda which I love so much!! So, if you find yourself near NW LoDo and hungry for a great dining atmosphere (inside or outside) and awesome fresh food made right in front of your eyes, take a visit to Illegal Pete’s!!”
