The Quirkiest Hot Dog Stand In Colorado That’s So Worth A Visit
One of the most iconic of summertime foods is BBQ, which includes pulled pork and ribs, hamburgers, and — of course — hot dogs. Since we here at Only in Your State have already covered the best BBQ joints and the best place for a hamburger in the state, we figured it is time to pay homage to the hot dog, which is served best at this quirky Colorado hot dog stand that is so worth a visit:
For the best Coney Island hot dog outside of — well, Coney Island — visit the one-of-a-kind Coney Island Boardwalk in Bailey, Colorado.
Built in 1966, Coney Island Hot Dog is a 1950's-style diner that is unforgettable for its tasty dogs
and its hot dog-shaped building and one-of-a-kind ambiance.
Originally located along Colfax Avenue in Denver, the Coney Island Boardwalk has seen a number of different homes through the years, including Aspen Park (1970 to 2006) and, most recently, Bailey.
Pictured is Coney Island during its Aspen Park years (circa 1980).
Despite having to relocate twice, Coney Island has remained a popular Colorado icon, thanks to not only its unique storefront but also its delicious menu!
While you really cannot go wrong with anything from this hot dog stand, we highly recommend their mouthwatering Coney Chili Cheese Dog...
The beauty on the left is one of their beer brats smothered in sauerkraut and mustard... yum!
...or their good, old-fashioned foot-long hot dog topped with as much (or as little) as you like.
In addition to just the dogs, Coney Island also serves an assortment of tasty sides and ice cream, so be sure to bring a big appetite when you visit.
Whether you dine in or carry out, you are guaranteed a hot dog that is what summertime dreams are made of!
