Coney Island Boardwalk Hot Dog Stand, a familiar site to many mountain goers, is set to reopen under the guidance of John Wallace and his family in June, according to Dining Out. An Aurora native, Wallace aims to eventually operate the spot as a German-style microbrewery - but promises to pair the beer well with the dogs.
Wallace intends to return in mid-June after dedicating some time to repairing the building. Currently, Wallace utilizing Kickstarter to raise funds for the effort.
At the new and improved Coney Island stand, Wallace will serve a variety of gourmet hot dogs, brats, and frankfurters supplied from Continental Sausage in Colorado. The future menu will be stacked with original creations like the Durango Dog, an elk jalapeño dog made with cheddar and topped with poblano-corn-caramelized onion relish and chipotle sour cream, along with Coney Island-style classics. The restaurant will offer condiments sourced from local vendors including Elevation ketchup and Rocky Mountain Soda.
Coney Island Boardwalk Hotdog Stand is located at 10 Old Stage Coach Road in Bailey, Colorado.
