Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

With Wurstküche coming to town last month from California, joining such local favorites as Biker Jim's, Steve's Snappin' Dogs and Mustard's Last Stand, this city is rolling in sausages — which inspired our list of the Ten Best Places for Sausage in Denver. And after all the expected jokes ("my pants," for example), a few readers offered tantalizing suggestions of other spots that should have made the list. Lechuga's, for example, which has changed hands but still features the Little Devil. And then there's this from Alex:

Alpine sausage on Alaska and Navajo. Best sausage nobody knows about... Little old German lady makes sausage old school style!...

If you're looking for sausage in Denver (no jokes, please), where do you go? Any more secret spots?

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
