It seems as though hot dogs are synonymous with hot weather, baseball and outdoor activities. In which case, it’s not so hard to understand why July was listed as National Hot Dog Month. To celebrate this great food, we have listed the places where you can eat the best hot dogs in Denver!
Best Hot Dogs in Denver
Biker Jim’s Gourmet Dogs
Biker Jim’s Gourmet Dogs started off as a sidewalk food cart in Downtown Denver by Jim Pittenger (aka Biker Jim). After Pittenger’s hot dogs became so popular, he started to open more and more food carts around town. Eventually Pittenger realized that Denver simply loves his hot dogs so much, that it was time to open a brick-and-mortar location. That’s when Biker Jim’s Gourmet Dogs opened up in the Ballpark neighborhood. At Biker Jim’s Gourmet Dogs, you can expect to find traditional hot dogs, speciality hot dogs (such as the bacon wrapped hot dog), and not-so-traditional hot dogs made from elk, veal, buffalo, reindeer, pheasant… and even rattlesnake!
Biker Jim’s Gourmet Dogs is located at 2148 Larimer St, Denver, CO 80205

The Uber Sausage
The Uber Sausage is a different take on your traditional looking hot dog. Instead of a traditional sausage and bun, their hot dogs resemble sandwiches.

The original eatery is located on East Colfax, while their newest location, Uber Eats, is in the LoHi neighborhood.
