Photos: Biker Jim's Opens in Highlands Ranch Today

Biker Jim's opened its second brick-and-mortar spot, this one in Highlands Ranch, at 11 a.m. today. Although the hours might not be as expansive in suburbia as they are at the original in the Ballpark neighborhood (where Biker Jim's stays open until 3 a.m. on weekends), the menu is just as big...and as meaty. "For any of you Highlands Ranchers that had made the drive to our Larimer store...I feel your pain," says founder Jim Pittenger. "That is a drive, isn't it?" Photographer Danielle Lirette made the drive to visit with Biker Jim on the eve of the opening; keep reading for a taste of the new place.
