Biker Jims started out as a Hot Dog cart on 16th Street Mall a few years ago. The cart became so popular that it has been featured on No Reservations with Anthony Bourdain and a few other shows on the Food Network. The reason it became so popular is that it is not your normal hot dog stand. All the meats served here are wild game; they have Elk, Wild Boar, Rattlesnake and Southwest Buffalo to name a few. The cart became such a hit that it allowed Biker Jim to open a physical location a few blocks from Coors Field at 2148 Larimer St.
We ventured into on a beautiful Summer Sunday afternoon before a Rockies game. For a hot dog joint, the menu has a lot to offer. They have 13 different dog choices, including a vegan option. All the hot dogs are $6 with a select few that have a $.50 up charge. Once you pick your dog, you can choice to â€śTop itâ€ť for an additional $1. They have a nice selection of sides as well.
We decided to go with the Southwest Buffalo dog. This one is made with buffalo, chipotles, green chiles and cumin. The classic way to â€śTop Itâ€ť is with cream cheese and caramelized onions. Thatâ€™s what we did. We got a can of PBR to finish the order.
After a few minutes, they called my name and I grabbed my finished dog. The first bite was amazing, I really donâ€™t recall tasting a hot dog that was juicy and was popping with so many flavors. The cream cheese and onion are a perfect combination. I can see why he Cart on 16th street became so popular; this was a perfect treat on a summer afternoon.
I would suggest getting a dog here instead of Coors field next time you head down to a game. And guess what, the Rockies lost.
