Hearty Eats In Palmer Lake

Darcy Schoening and Greg Duncan bring you Dex’s Dogs, at 56 S. Colorado 105, Palmer Lake.

It’s hearty food for not much moola.

Nothing for breakfast, lunch or dinner exceeds $7.75 – except for occasional special additions to the menu. And portions are large.

With "dog" in the name, of course, there’s a good selection of tube steaks.

The Dex’s Dog is an all-beef wiener topped with slow-smoked pork, tangy coleslaw and sweet bourbon barbecue sauce for $7.

The Frito pie ($5) was a pile of chips topped with steaming homemade chili, onions, cheese and jalapeƱos ($5).

A pastry cabinet is filled with impressive-looking homemade muffins, cinnamon rolls, quiche and pies. Call ahead to order take ‘n’ bake items.

Hours are 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Mondays through Wednesdays, 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Fridays, 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturdays and 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sundays.
