At the corner of 16th and Arapahoe, across from the D&F Clocktower is one of the best places for lunch in Denver. Ask any of the walking white collars or parking ticket givers and they'll tell you that Biker Jim's Gourmet Dogs has to be the best lunch cart on the 16th Street Mall. Word has definitely gotten out, even Food and Wine editor Dana Cowen has referred to Biker Jim's as an "amazing street cart with superb reindeer sausage". In fact the reindeer is my favorite, especially with grilled onions and a shot of cream cheese. Yeah, that's right, cream cheese straight out of the caulking gun. So good! Jim has a variety of interesting choices. Of course, if you just want a dog, he has Hebrew Nationals. But check out the selections: Alaska Reindeer; Elk Jalapeno Cheddar; Southwest Buffalo; Wild Boar; German Veal; Louisiana Red Hot. Wednesday is a special day, Jim breaks out the Pheasant as well other rare and interesting links. Don't miss it!
The dogs run $4, and a buck-and-a-half more for pop and chips. He makes excellent cheesecake, so stay out of the Cheesecake Factory! If you want more than a slice, you can pre-order a whole cake. As his site points out, he makes boozy cakes, fruity cakes, or just the best Vanilla NY Cheesecake around. Drop by or email him for more info.
He's out there Monday thru Friday from around 11am to 3pm. Check out his fun blog to find out about menu changes, what the crazies on the Mall are doing, and if he'll be braving the latest snowstorm or not.
