“Woth the trip for lunch”
Reviewed 18 April 2013

I have been going to the Swiss Hotdog Company for over twenty years. Unfortunately, Ernst, the owner had to move out of Lionshead in Vail to about three miles from downtown Avon, across from Walmart. I returned this year after years of not going when I took a day off from skiing. The sausage sandwich was just as wonderful with his wonderful spices and sprouts, while the chicken soup was good, but a notch below its usual fabulousness because of some dark meat and a small piece of chicken bone in the soup. My guess is that Ernst did not make this batch. Nevertheless, if you have never been, you should. I was told that here are days he stays open to seven, which means you can pick up a great sandwich after skiing, or if in the summer, for lunch.

“Interesting”
Reviewed 5 March 2013

Devious combo. Small menu. Very nice ladies. Simple and to the point. Also fast and inexpensive. It's not really a hot dog it's a lot more.

“A hidden gem”
Reviewed 25 February 2013

In Avon, across from Walmart. You have to go here. It is so delicious. Obviously the swiss hot dog is the star. My husband always gets the triple (sausages are thin). So flavorful with mustard, sprouts, a unique combination. The soup is also delicious! Family owned, great place!!!!

“Great soup and dogs”
Reviewed 8 December 2012

Had their hot dogs recently and they are more like brats. Very tasty with the toppings that they include.
The chicken soup is also very tasty, with good chicken chunks and wide noodles. Nice and warm on a cool day. Not a place to go out of your way for but if you are in the area a good place to get energized.

“Good Sausages here very tasty”
Reviewed 8 December 2012

The doggies are in a grill press and you get two on a fresh roll/bun. These people make a good hot dog with very fresh veggies and flavors. I work with Hot dog stores in the Hot Dog Capital which is Chicago.
The inside is clean but not the place you want to hang out. Priced right for Beaver Creek and the store is clean and the service is prompt as you walk up a get served quickly.
