dogstopI stopped into the Dog Stop, a drive-through hot dog stand on Arapaho just west of Hillcrest. The menu for this tiny place is amazing: the husband and wife team that owns the spot offers a variety of styles including Chicago, Philly, German, Polish, and Texas.

I picked up a Texas Dog, a soft poppy seed bun with a Vienna Beef dog topped with yellow mustard, neon green relish, sliced jalapenos, and celery salt. Can’t say that I cared too much for the relish and jalapenos together especially since they were both refrigerator cold and caused the whole sandwich to cool down too fast.

The Maxwell Street Dog was terrific. A Polish dog cooked on the griddle, nestled in a yellow mustard covered poppy seed bun, and covered with crunchy grilled onions and a long slice of dill pickle. Next time I’ll substitute sport peppers. This place is a bargain: $5.07 for two dogs and one drink.
