Chicago Style Beef & Dogs

6680 W. Colfax Ave. Lakewood, CO 80214 | West Denver Suburbs | 303-233-0500

Location Description:

Luanne and Joe Margotte opened this joint wellover a decade ago with the idea of transplanting a few hundred square feet of Chicago in the fertile soil of metro Denver. The game on the radio is the Cubs or the Bears; at the counter is a stash of Fannie May candies, boxes of Salerno butter cookies, signs for Gonnella bread (as vital to Chicago eaters as Amoroso rolls are to Philadelphians). The place is less a restaurant than a cramped, cluttered, plastic-wrapped museum of Chicago paraphernalia.
