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.
