“We’re excited to introduce Denver to our highly addictive sausage sandwiches,” said The Über Sausage Co-owner & Founder Alex Gschwend. “The recipe for ‘The Swiss’ originated in 1944 in my grandfather Leo Karl Gschwend’s kitchen in the small town of Altstatten, Switzerland. The Swiss is made with a secret mix of herbs and spices—a ‘Gschwend family’ recipe—that my partners and I are looking forward to sharing with the Denver community. With premium meats and all natural ingredients, our sausage sandwiches are impressive enough for a fine-dining experience, but accessible to the masses.”

The restaurant’s menu boasts 6 themed sausage sandwiches that are uniquely paired with organic, fresh vegetables, fruits, and homemade sauces served on a toasted French roll.

  •     The Swiss (signature sandwich): Free range veal or pork sausage (European style) topped with clover sprouts, chopped onions and parsley, spicy mustard and a secret mix of herbs and spices.
  •     The Chicken Apple: Chicken apple sausage accompanied by grilled apples, caramelized onions, spinach, blue cheese, and spicy mustard.
  •     Southwestern Buffalo Bratwurst: Buffalo bratwurst topped with choke cherry (or seasonal berry) chipotle sauce, mixed red and Napa cabbage, and queso fresco.
  •     Smoked Charred Kielbasa: Smoked Kielbasa in BBQ sauce, apple coleslaw and a special mix of spices.
  •     Chicago Style Hotdog: Bison hotdog that comes with tomato, chopped onions, sport peppers, neon relish, yellow mustard, homemade dill pickle, and celery salt.

“We designed the restaurant to incorporate both modern and rustic elements with a leaning towards traditional Swiss culture,” said The Über Sausage Co-owner & Founder Brad Arguello. “The cow and bull themed elements throughout the restaurant and The Über Sausage food truck are inspired by our signature sandwich, The Swiss, a pork veal sausage that has taken Europe by storm.” Arguello comes from a restaurateur background, as his father founded Denver’s staple Moroccan restaurant, Mataam Fez, also located on East Colfax.

The restaurant’s Über Sausage food truck will frequent local sporting events, concerts, late-night bar scenes, and hangouts year-round. To see where the truck is stopping next, follow The Über Sausage on Twitter:

“Our sausage sandwiches are so good it should be illegal; In fact we’re questioned about what’s in the Gschwend family recipe often, but we’ll never reveal Leo’s secret!” stated The Über Sausage Co-owner & Founder Henry DeMatteis. “The Über Sausage’s lively Swiss inspired atmosphere and outdoor patio is a great setting for people of all ages to enjoy fresh, gourmet sausage sandwiches at an affordable price.”

About The Über Sausage
The Über Sausage is a Denver-based fast-casual restaurant that serves up gourmet sausages with fresh, all natural ingredients that are “so good it should be illegal.” The story of The Über Sausage dates back to 1923 with the birth of Leo Karl Gschwend in the small town of Altstatten, Switzerland. Early in his life, Leo decided on a career of food and his dream of becoming a chef. After being trained as a chef in St. Gallen and Neuchatel, Switzerland, he came to the United States in 1950 to start a new life and bring his international talents to Colorado. Although he ran a successful fine dining restaurant and catering business, Leo's favorite meal was an often found European street food, a Swiss sausage, that he regularly prepared for his family and friends. In June of 2011, his grandson—Alex Gschwend—and two partners—Henry DeMatteis and Brad Arguello, whose father founded the Denver Moroccan restaurant Mataam Fez—decided to bring Leo's family secret and other gourmet sausage sandwiches to the masses.
