This September, to celebrate the blending of Mexican and American cultures in our city, Denver Mayor Michael Hancock declared October 14 Breakfast Burrito Day. From this year forward, Breakfast Burrito Day will be celebrated on the second Saturday of October.

While there are a lot of places to get a great breakfast burrito in Denver — in fact, The Know has a whole bracket for them — today we’re only covering the places doing specials. In particular, Illegal Pete’s is going all out with free breakfast burritos. But that’s not all Santiago’s is practically giving them away at $1.25 whereas Resolute is pairing them with a beer.

The Lowdown: You already know we love the Illegal Pete’s Breakfast Burrito — it made the list of our favorite hangover cures in Denver. But, they’re going to taste even better on October 14 when they are FREE from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.

The Lowdown: We have Santiago’s to thank for leading the inauguration of the holiday, and they’re team is celebrating big across all 28 locations. All day on October 14, the breakfast burritos will be $1.25 — the same price they were when the restaurant opened its doors in 1990. Orders include chile and the option to include cheese — no other substitutions for the deal. There’s a limit of five per customer.
