Editor's note: Get to know Hanna and Betty, the new super-secret restaurant review team for The York Dispatch. Reviews by these cracked culinary comedians will run twice a month in the Food section. Want to recommend a restaurant for review? Email food editor Mel Barber at mbarber@yorkdispatch.com with your suggestion, and we'll see what we can do.

Hanna: Where do you want to eat dinner tonight?

Betty: I don't care. Where do you want to go?

Hanna: How about [Super-Secret Restaurant]?

Betty: No, I don't want to go there. How about [Redacted To Protect the Hungry]?

Hanna: No, I don't want to go there.

Betty: Oh, I know! Let's go to [Shh! No Giving Away the Restaurants in Advance]!

Hanna: Eh, we just ate there last week.

Betty: Yeah, but we really liked it, didn't we?

Hanna: True. But I feel like trying someplace new.

Betty: See? This is why we need to write a restaurant review column for the paper. I'm sure lots of people out there are having the same conversation. We can help them find a good place to eat.

Hanna: We have eaten at pretty much every single restaurant in York County.

Betty: And we're awesome.

Hanna: Well, yes, that's true.

Betty: Who better to review restaurants than two awesome chicks who love to eat? Though I think we should tell the readers a little about us and why they should read our column.

Hanna: I want to go first!

Betty: You always go first!

Hanna: True. OK. You go first.

Betty: I don't know what to say. You go first.

Hanna: Nice. I think the problem with restaurant reviews is that they can be too highbrow.

Betty: We're definitely not highbrow. We might even be lower than lowbrow. We're below-brow.

Hanna: All I know is I have the vocabulary of a fourth-grader. You're the smart one.

Betty: I think people just want to know where to go to get a good meal, good service, a nice atmosphere and a reasonable price. This is York, not Paris. People aren't looking for those fishy egg things and guys to smell their wine.

Hanna: I seriously could not find Paris on a map.

Betty: That's true. So that's what we'll do. We'll tell them where to go to get a good deal on a great meal with honest reviews from two funny chicks who are looking for the same things when they go out.

Hanna: See? I told you you were the smart one.
