Jim Pittenger, a.k.a. Biker Jim, got his start selling hot dogs from a cart on the 16th Street Mall. Not just any hot dogs: wild boar hot dogs, reindeer hot dogs, pheasant hot dogs, buffalo, rattlesnake, you name it. Pittenger still has the cart (and a food truck), but he also opened permanent digs on Larimer, serving his trademark dogs, overflowing with all manner of toppings (wasabi aioli, pinto beans, cactus, and cream cheese among them), as well as guilty-pleasure side dishes like fried mac and cheese, charred cauliflower, and Biker Jim’s transcendent baked beans. The formula is working: Pittenger’s earned a fiercely loyal following, as well as praise from Anthony Bourdain and countless critics. There is a full bar.
