Biker Jim's Gourmet Dogs

We ate at the Biker Jim's in Highlands Ranch, CO on a Sunday afternoon.  This is not a regular hot dog place.  They serve dogs made out of reindeer, rattlesnake, pheasant, wild boar, duck, buffalo, etc.

Orders are placed at the counter. The staff was very nice and helpful.  I chose a frank wrapped in bacon with a side order of fried mac and cheese.  The frank was delicious and the mac and cheese was really good.  The mac and cheese was quite filling.

Jeff ordered the rattlesnake and pheasant dog and a side order of fried pickles.  He liked his dog.  Neither of us liked the fried pickles which was a first. 

We ate outside in their patio area which has a nice view of the mountains.

We enjoyed eating here and may return if time allows.

The Rib House

The Rib House is located in a very residential area in Longmont, CO.  We ate here on a Saturday evening and were surprised that no one else was there.  I had read the reviews and most were really good. 

Orders are placed at the counter and then your order is brought out to you.  The employee who took our order was very nice and explained the menu since it was our first time.

There is a nice seating area outside as well as inside. We chose to sit outside as it was a very nice evening.

We were really surprised by how long it took to get our order since they had no other customers when we came in.  It was probably a good 20-30 minutes. 

I ordered Scott's Rib Basket which also included two sides.  I chose the cheesy corn bake and coleslaw.  The cheesy corn bake was really good. The coleslaw was blah.  It lacked seasoning.  The pork ribs were delicious.  I chose the medium BBQ sauce and it was good.

Jeff ordered Mark's Rib Sampler.  He chose the Fire BBQ sauce because he likes hot things and the lady at the counter said it really wasn't that hot.  It was too hot for him and that never happens.

We both really liked the food here.  My only suggestions would be that customers should be allowed to try more than one sauce without an additional charge.
