Illegal Pete’s

A great local competitor to Chipotle and Qdoba, Illegal Pete’s homegrown goodness is a must for any burrito lovers out there. With two locations in Boulder, one on The Hill and one on Pearl St., their wide variety of breakfast, lunch, and dinner options has something for you at any time.

I ordered from their Hill location, and their speedy service sent me home in no time, greedily clutching my bag of goodies. I started with their homemade chips. Impossibly thin and crunchy, they are perfect when paired with a side of salsa or their guacamole (pictured). Their almost sweet flavor, contrasted by the salt, is absolutely to die for. My only complaint is that there were too few!

For my main course I ordered a steak burrito with black beans, pico de gallo, shredded cheese, and sour cream. This burrito was so large I needed two hands in order to even begin to manage it. Packed with flavor, the steak was juicy and tender, thankfully not overly chewy as some burrito meat tends to be. Although I would’ve preferred less rice, the rest of the ingredients were not overshadowed and I was left perfectly content after my meal!

In addition to their fantastic quesadillas, burritos, and tacos, Illegal Pete’s serves enormously delicious breakfast sandwiches, perfect after a late night. I love Illegal Pete’s and highly suggest it when you’ve got the itch for some tasty Mexican food – it’ll definitely curb your cravings!

Another burrito joint.

That’s the Pornery to you, buddy. A litlte bird told me he paid $14M, but you know how litlte birds are about porn so who knows. There were half-hearted protests at the time, as if a porn studio weren’t a giant step up for that corner.It’s the kink-dot-dom guy, by the way. His old place was called the Porn Palace and I’m not sure whether the new one is called that by insiders but I’ve just called it the Pornery since he took it over.The best feature is that a giant Rainbow Flag flies from this intimidating military structure repurposed as a temple of profitable fetish. Must confuse the hell out of the tourists.I never went to any of his parties but some of my friends did.
