Westword's Description

If you were lucky enough to grow up near an old-time hot dog stand, a place where you could drive up, order dogs and burgers and shakes at the counter, then sit down at a picnic-style table to enjoy them, then you'll see what Steve's is doing right away. And if you weren't lucky enough to grow up near such a place, you're in for a treat. Steve's offers more than a dozen styles of dogs -- everything from the Rippin' Rockies Dog to the Dallas Dog to the California Dog to the Denver "Burrito" Dog -- using Thumann's hot dogs. Imported all the way from New Jersey, a Thumann's dog is a near-quarter-pound blend of beef and pork that snaps when you bite into it. The lineup also includes bratwurst and kosher-style all-beef dogs, BLTs, grilled turkey sandwiches and a never-frozen, grill-smashed burger. But unlike those old-time hot dog stands, Steve's caters to newfangled tastes, too, with its veggie dogs -- and even makes vegetarian green chile for a topper. Order your choice at Steve's colorful counter, then take a seat indoors or, when it's warm, outdoors on Steve's covered, enclosed patio, where you can watch the passing parade on Colfax.

    I am not a big hot dog eater but absolutely loves Steve's hamburgers and would say that they are certainly Denver's best hamburger for the price. Steve's is a fun destination place for adults and kids alike. The 50's style East Coast hot dog stand is unlike any of the other hot dog places in Denver as Steve's doesn's serve up Vienna Beef products like the others.

    The staff is friendly and if you are lucky you will get the pleasure of meeting Steve himself.

    Grab a delicious dog here and pair it with their sweet-potato tots and fresh-squeezed lemonade.

    What do you wash your dog down with? A pitcher of PBR, of course!
