Next time you stop into Illegal Pete's in Old Town Fort Collins you can congratulate them for making into the top 50- in all of America!

Illegal Pete's is definitely one of the coolest places around to get great Mexican fare. Their location in Fort Collins is super-cool with that rooftop patio!

On August 20, 2018, the folks at The Daily Meal (All Things Food & Drink) released their sixth annual list of 'The 50 Best Burritos in America'

There are few foods quite as satisfying as a well-made burrito, and these 50 restaurants do it the best.

One of the burritos at Illegal Pete's made the list!

They beat out TEN other restaurants to come in at #40 for their pork carnitas burrito!

The pork is braised with Mexican Coke, orange juice, and spices, and is sweet, spicy, and deliciously porky, and it gets rolled up in an all-natural tortilla with cilantro-lime rice, beans, salsa, cheese, and sour cream

Sure, they didn't make the #1 slot, but that's not what Illegal Pete's is about, anyway. Great people, great food, great times!
