Billy's Gourmet Hot Dogs, the brainchild of owner Bill Feid, a wiener-loving Chicagoan who says he couldn't find a noble Chicago-style dog when he first moved to Denver, opened last week at 2445 Larimer Street.
The menu, a catchall of eight different Vienna beef, Polser and salmon hot dogs and sausages, including bratwurst, hot and sweet Italian and Polish, swaddled in steamed buns, also peddles four varieties of hand-cut fries and the all-important dog chaser -- beer. "We'll also offer beef sandwiches, buffalo brats, and some other fun stuff," says Feid, whose grinding his own meats and using all original recipes.
Billy's is open Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Friday and Saturday till 2 a.m.; and Sunday until 6 p.m. For more info, call 303-284-2714.
