High Marks for Honor Society and Dos Santos

This is what the critics are talking about this week.

Great taste at chain-restaurant speed is what Honor Society is about, according to this week's review in the Denver Post. A contender in the new "fast-food-fine" movement, Honor Society impressed critic William Porter. Everything, from the braised short rib sandwich to the seasonal side dishes, was delectable. Though the food arrived in a timely manner, Porter noted that fast food speed doesn't necessarily mean fast food price - a sandwich and single side came out to be $20.25.

Dos Santos got a (mostly) rave review in the latest Westword article. Critic Gretchen Kurtz fell hard for the chilaquiles, so much so that she had to stop typing her review to indulge in them. The restaurant, owned by brothers Kris and Jason Wallenta, presents a modern take on the classic taqueria, with dishes that include a regularly rotating vegetable taco and pumpkin seed and prickly-pear cactus guacamole. Some of the dishes, such as the dos dip appetizer and the salsa didn't impress Kurtz as much as others, but over all, she sums the restaurant up in one phrase: Damn good tacos.
