The news that Billy's Gourmet Hot Dogs on East Colfax has closed (the Ballpark and South Broadway locations remain open) didn't bother one reader — but it did make her think about another hot-dog joint farther east on Colfax that has food to die for. Says Anna:
Meh... Billy's kinda sucked, anyway. If this ever happens to Steve's, I'll kill myself.
Did you go to Billy's? How about Steve's Snappin' Dogs? What's your to-die for hot dog in Denver?
