Denver’s inaugural Breakfast Burrito Day was by all measures a hit.
Burrito-loving Coloradans flocked to area restaurants Saturday to celebrate what Mayor Michael Hancock has officially dubbed Breakfast Burrito Day.
Santiago’s offered up burritos for $1.25 – the same price as when they opened in 1990, while Illegal Pete’s five Denver locations served up free breakfast burritos from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Both chains saw scores of people lining up to get their hands on a free or cheap breakfast burrito.
Santiago’s near I-25 and Hampden saw a long line of people wrapped around the outside of the restaurant.
A similarly long line was also captured outside of Illegal Pete’s on South Broadway.
Some even took to social media to show their support of city’s newest food holiday.

HUGE crowd of people on Evans this a.m. Ticket giveaway? Morning rave? New iPhone? No. It's #breakfastburritoday. Oh, Denver, you slay me!— Tiffany Quay Tyson (@tqtyson) October 14, 2017
