Jim ‘Biker Jim’ Pittenger is not your ordinary culinary chef. He is, however, the undisputed Gourmet Dog King of Denver. With an appetite for grilling exotic game meat, a low-key approachable personality, and a knack for catchy slogans like “Off The Street and Into Your Mouth”, Pittenger has redefined an American icon in his own image in more ways than one.
On any given day, whether at one of his tricked out food carts, concession stand at Rockies Stadium, or his restaurant at 2148 Larimer Street, Pittenger has generated local, regional, national, and international acclaim for his grilled gourmet dogs, cream cheese, sizzling caramelized onions, and super-casual atmosphere.
Pittenger has appeared twice on the late Anthony Bourdain’s show “No Reservations”, numerous cooking shows for The Food Channel and Netflix, and his gourmet dogs have been recognized in countless Top-10 lists around the country.
