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 jalapeños ($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.

Details: 375-8955, dexdogs.com.
