Serves meat, vegan options available. Colorado-based casual Mexican restaurant & bar chain. Vegan suitable items include: cilantro lime rice, brown rice, black and pinto beans, fajita veggies, guacamole, salsas and chips, pesto (creaminess comes from nuts), and the veggie green chili is vegan but contains potatoes (same fryer used for non-veg). Could ask for guacamole as substitute for dairy in a burrito, bowl, tacos. Open Mon-Wed 7:00am-12:00am, Thu-Fri 7:00am-2:30am, Sat 9:00am-2:30am, Sun 9:00am-12:00am.

A solid, affordable option for vegetarians and vegans - Edit

Illegal Pete's is a staple for the front range in CO; a Punk Rock Chipotle, if you will. I had never eaten here before, but my wife and I were in the neighborhood, so we decided to try it, after driving by several locations in the past. It was a good choice; affordable and tasty, with large portions. It's an easy place to get relatively healthy, satisfying vegan meal for a decent price. Bonus: if you don't get cheese, guacamole is FREE!!! Score!

Pros: Affordable, Filling Portion sizes (Burrito at least), Free Guacamole, if you don't get cheese

Cons: It get's busy at lunch time., Not to be an old man, but turn the music down.

Burritos - Edit

It was fine. Not a very exciting menu but if you're looking for a quick and filling lunch burrito or nachos this hits the spot. Order at counter and you can select exactly which fillings you want, Subway style. There are tables inside and out and a separate bar area serving beers and cocktails.
