If you have got a hankering for a big burrito, stop by this restaurant on the Hill for one of Pete's tasty creations. The burritos come lathered in fresh, homemade salsa and include steak and chicken options. The Fish Taco is the house specialty. Other menu items inlcude enchiladas, taquitos, salads and quesadillas. Happy Hour from 5pm-8pm features discounted margaritas and other drink specials. Live music is sometimes featured on weekends. This happening-place is popular with the college crowd. It is also located at: 1447 Pearl Street.
Prices have gone up and size has gone down. In consistent size and quality. Now that Pearl Street has the parking fee machines instead of meters, it makes it much more of a hassle to go there, and with their prices on the rise (now more expensive than Chipolte or Whole Foods), and a high turn over rate which makes burritos vary significantly, it makes me want to go there less despite good food. i used to eat about 5-8 burritos a week! And their website does not have a way to give the company comments. I had a particularly bad experience last time I was there and wanted to let them know, but cannot figure out how to contact them.
Haven't lived in Boulder since 1999 and I miss it everyday went back to my home in the concrete jungles of NYC. Petes was awesome, the one on Pearl Street was always better then the one on the hill, nothing like a chicken burrito and a Fat Tire to wash it down.
Burritos have gotten smaller while prices have increased. Taste is inconsistent - it seems like burritos have gotten wetter and juicier (which is not a good thing). Inconsistency probably due to the high turnover of employees, many of whom are surly and definitely stoned. IP does have the best chicken for burritos in town. Good breakfast burritos too.
IP (as Boulderites commonly call it) is definitely the best burrito place in Boulder... the one on Pearl Street is the best of the two (there is one on the Hill). But if you're going to try it, definitely go to the one on Pearl Street - it's a better location, more room, and better service. I moved away from Boulder in June 2006 and have not been able to find anything that compares. :o)
I used to live in Boulder and came here at least once a week. We have Chipolte and other burrito places where I now live, but they do not compare. One key thing that IP does is actually MIX the burrito ingredients together instead of just piling meat and cheese on top of rice, so you don't get a bite of only rice. I am going back to Boulder next month for the first time in years and I cannot wait to go to Illegal Pete's at least once.
