Dos Perros isn’t your typical Mexican restaurant.

You won’t find fishbowl-sized margaritas or sombreros here.

What you will find is a restaurant serious about honoring the rich culinary heritage of Mexican cuisine by serving classic dishes alongside innovative specials still rooted in the flavors and cooking techniques of Mexico. Owner Charlie Deal curates a thoughtful beverage program, featuring hand-crafted cocktails and an extensive beer list - with an emphasis on featuring North Carolina brewers and distillers.

Our atmosphere is warm and friendly; stylish enough for date night but not formal or stuffy. In fact, you’ll often find a crowd gathered around the bar talking soccer or picking our bartenders' brains for the secret to a perfect margarita.

The menu is truly an experience in real Mexican cuisine, highlighting the region's rich, flavorful sauces; fresh, simple ingredients, and perfectly balanced spices. Locally sourced ingredients turn into amazing tacos, perfect tamales, delightful soups and surprising salads.

Plus, Dos Perros is known throughout the Triangle as one of Durham’s best vegetarian and vegan options, with numerous gluten-free options as well.

Come in and visit us, and see why Dos Perros is Durham’s favorite authentic Mexican place.
