Illegal Pete’s 

Our food. Your taste buds. A match made in culinary heaven. From loaded, mission-style burritos to bowls, salads, nachos, quesadillas, and—of course—our signature queso, Illegal Pete’s is all about handmade food made from responsible, high-quality ingredients. We also keep a full bar and a wide selection of local drafts at every Pete’s location to keep times good.

We don’t just like music, we love it. That’s why each Illegal Pete’s is also a venue for live music performances. It’s why we feed touring bands through our Starving Artists program. It’s also why we started our own record label featuring artists like Esmé Patterson, Ark Life, Adam Cayton-Holland, and more.

We’re all about relaxed, authentic human connection. We’re also about paying a living wage that allows our employees to lead comfortable lives with one job. So Pete has launched the 2015 Living Wage Initiative to boost all Illegal Pete’s employee compensation across the board.
