With menu items like Alaska Reindeer, Wild Boar, and Southwest Buffalo, how can you NOT check this food stand out? Honestly, I’m going to take this very opportunity to throw this out there: I’m not a hot dog person. Actually, they make me sick. Now, let me reiterate the ingredients in these gourmet dogs again: buffalo, wild boar, deer… Gourmet dogs with specified ingredients? Hell yeah – I can totally get down with that!

My gourmet dog of choice just so happened to be Elk Jalapeno Cheddar; additional condiments of sautéed onions, cream cheese, spicy mustard, relish, and ketchup turned this already-glorious find into a hot, mouth-watering mess of awesome. Even better? They don’t charge an arm and a leg like some other food trucks capitalizing on us starving, buzzed up City Park Jazz goers. Plus, the ladies and gentleman manning the stand are hilarious – I want to be their friends, like all the time.
Keep an eye out for their stand, and make sure to click on the pictures in this feature to be re-directed to Biker Jim’s Facebook page!
Who doesn’t love PB&J’s (Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches)? This new, creative spin on an old-time favorite is definitely a hit, and the mobility of the foodtruck allows Hey PB&J to travel to numerous events during the ever-so busy Denver summer months.

Such a hit within the community, you’d think that Hey PB&J had been around a while; however, they just started up their foodtruck engine in May 2012, says owner Matt McDonald. At this point, they have one truck, and constantly tour around Denver serving up their own deliciously sweet, savory, and spicy sandwiches.
Ingredients include anything from a variety of fruit, special peanut butter, special jellies, Nutella, applewood smoked bacon – you name it. Take a peak at their menu here so the next time you run into them at an event, or parked on the street, you will have an idea of what to try first… and second!

Yesterday, we had just gotten to Westword when we saw the truck, and were still stuffed from our morning meals, so we were unable to try all of the deliciousness that Hey PB&J has to offer. By the looks of their following on Facebook, and their eclectic. mouth-watering menu, this foodtruck is bound to find a favorite spot in our hearts and our bellies.
Make sure you stop by and support this local foodtruck venture; here’s all of their info in case you forgot to click on the links in the pictures provided! Can’t wait to see you at Hey PB&J this summer.
