Biker Jim's Gourmet Dogs
Hot Dog · Ballpark · $
Food 4.5 · Decor 3.8 · Service 4.2

Owner Jim Pittenger goes “light years beyond” your “ordinary hot dog” to sling “spectacular” , “exotic-game” links (like rattlesnake, reindeer and wild boar) smothered in “brilliantly bizarre” toppings and paired with local beers at this “down-to-earth” biker-themed joint in Ballpark; fans can “get their hound on” till late on weekends – once they get past the “long lines” , that is.
Marco's Coal Fired Pizzeria | Ballpark
Pizza · Ballpark · $$
Food 4.4 · Decor 4.0 · Service 4.1

"Fantabulous, authentic Napolitano" pies featuring "crispy" , "coal-fired" crusts and "top-of-the-line" ingredients satisfy "misplaced NYers" and other "pizza snobs" who congregate at these "popular" parlors "with personality" that also offer "rustic fresh salads" and limoncello wings you "can't live without" ; though some find them "a little spendy" for the genre, patio seating and "attentive" service add value.

Chef "Dana Rodriguez is a genius" say fans of the "hip, homey and high-quality" Southern–Latin American menu at this "happening" RiNo hot spot with "solid" service and "fair" prices; the "tight space" in an old shipping container makes for a "boisterous" , even "hectic" atmosphere – no doubt fueled by "stiff drinks" that go down "easy (perhaps a little too easy)" – but "do yourself a favor" and "get there early" to beat the crowds.
American · Uptown · $$
Food 4.3 · Decor 4.0 · Service 4.2

Ditch the diet, "bring your tats" and "be prepared to enjoy the hell" out of regional American "comfort food done right" – from "decadent" chicken and waffles to "lobster rolls right out of Maine" – at these "upscale diners" with a "hipster" twist; against their "retro" , “midcentury-modern" backdrops, "classic cocktails" are a "boozehound's dream" , though a staff that's "well trained to deal with little ones" means they're "kid-friendly" too.
