Dos Santos' Springs location opens on Tuesday, Oct. 2.
In January, Denver-based Dos Santos Taqueria de Mexico
owner/operator Jason Wallenta announced that he and brother Kris, Dos Santos' owner/chef, would be opening a new location in Colorado Springs
, in the former Southside Johnny's next to fellow Denver food expansionists Atomic Cowboy Provisions. Now we have an opening date: Dos Santos Colorado Springs
will open today, Tuesday, Oct. 2.
"We’re just excited to open our doors to the public," Jason says, saying that friends-and-family soft openings over the preceding weekend went smoothly.
The Springs location will have a menu largely identical to their Denver spot, though they're adding tuna poke nachos for Springs diners. For beer, they'll have only three taps. One will feature Dos Santos Mexican lager, brewed by Denver's Station 26 Brewing Co. As a local nod, they'll be pouring Goat Patch Brewing Company's It Takes a Tribe red ale, which recently won bronze for Best Scottish-style ale at the Great American Beer Festival. They'll also have a full, tequila-centric bar.
“Arguably, we have the best margaritas in the Springs now," Jason boasts. "Everything is juiced and made fresh daily.”
Bold words, but Springs diners can see if they hold up soon. To celebrate, they'll be offering their taco Tuesday specials — four select tacos for $3 each, $4 Dos Santos lagers and $6 tequila mules. For hours and more info, click here
