I went with a group of friends we ordered lamb tacos . I was very disappointed about the quality, the tacos were cold, the lamb had a lot of fat , the salsa on the tacos had not taste and really 18 dollars for that kind of food? The quality has gone down and I won’t cone back. My friends thought the same
The outdoor seating is really nice and the servers were friendly and attentive. Last time I went, the salmon I ordered was fantastic and worth the price. However, this time the shrimp I ordered was not good- the sauce was unremarkable, grits were not seasoned, and black beans were just okay. The whole dish came out lukewarm, and was insanely overpriced for what you get. My husband ordered beef tacos- which was three beef tacos for $18. The tacos were amazing, however $18 for 3 small tacos is just ridiculous. The food is just way too overpriced for what you get and not consistent.
Dos Perros knows how to do food! Went for the Vegan challenge and tried all 3 vegan dishes - they were all amazing! Sat outside and the patio is fun with great people watching. the service was good, efficient, our server was not overly friendly, though, but have had better experiences on prior visits.
this is one of our go-to places and we are GF vegan so it is great to try the new vegan dishes!
Service was great. Food and drinks were not good. Sent back a few things and it was just not good. Several in our party were sick afterwards.
Brought out of town friends for dinner after the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival. Excellent service and food, as always.
We always appreciate that Dos Perros has vegan options. This time, we ordered the 3-course Bull City Vegan Challenge menu - it was delicious, especially the esquites! We will be back.
I definitely enjoyed the atmosphere in this modern take of Hispanic cuisine. The food was really filling even though the portion size seemed smaller at first. I would definitely go for the queso again as an appetizer. The mixture was different but really tasty. I'd go on a date here again whenever I'm back around downtown Durham.
We started with calamari, which was a little too salty and not served hot enough. But it was still good. Had the basic margarita which was good. My dinner was the Vegetarian Chile Relleno which was excel;;went. Had flan for dessert which was creamy and tasty. Overall very good. Service was excellent.
Excellent, creative vegan specials, excellent sauces
We went specifically for the Vegan Challenge and both the appetizer and entree were fabulous. We did find the dessert a little tasteless however. The service was great and we really enjoyed the meal.
We had been wanting to try this restaurant since we moved to the Raleigh area 2.5 years ago and Easter Sunday was finally the day! Since I’m pregnant I couldn’t enjoy a margarita, however they looked amazing. The chips, salsa, and fresh guac was incredible. I’m a Mexican food snob and many of the places in this area don’t compare to restaurants in NJ/NYC. With that being said, this was some of the BEST chips and guacamole. My husband had the carnitas burrito for his entree and I had the enchiladas. Both were good! We will definitely return.
Very tasty. Server was extremely polished and made the evening special. We'll definitely be back soon!
Made reservation hoping for Taco night for my son’s birthday. Arrived to find they had changed their schedule. We had delicious tacos anyway and our son really enjoyed it! We will definitely return. Adults were able to enjoy $5 margaritas too!
Delicious way to celebrate a wonderful spring evening! Fantastic and knowledgeable server with delightful food and plenty of gluten-free options for me to eat!
Food was excellent!! Our waiter Mr. McGowan was phenomenal. We had a great time!
Excellent upscale mexican food. Unique renditions of everyday favorites like tacos and enchiladas.
Thanks! We enjoyed ourselves (even though we didn't drink!)
Authentic Mexican food with a modern twist. Enjoyed the food and the service was fantastic!
Dinner before DPAC show is usually at Dos Peros for our family. Menu is fresh, specials are unique, and margarita's excellent. The noise level permits conversation. My wife and I enjoyed the Red Snapper special. We all had a great time.
Awesome margaritas. Short rib enchiladas were very good as well as the N.C. shrimp. Good service, good value, easy walking distance to DPAC
We love Dos Perros and it’s our go-to eatery for pre-show dinners. However, we were disappointed this last time. We both had the specials and they were only okay. The lemon chicken quesadilla would have been good but the flavor of the chicken was overpowered but too much feta cheese. The swordfish tacos special was supposed to be a full meal but was not enough. We hope that future meals are better.
Having dined at Dos Perros several times, I have some perspective. The food is of great quality, although portions are relatively small. There has been a steady decline in the level of service over the last 3 years. They seem to be more concerned with turning the table over quickly than your satisfaction or dining experience. While I will likely return to the restaurant, I will no longer go on a weekend night, or on the night of a show at DPAC...they simply are too concerned with turning over tables, and quality of experience.
Dos Perros is a go-to spot for us before going to DPAC for a show. The food is good, the server is always attentive to our needs, and the margaritas are excellent. This time we had a guest from Germany who likes Mexican food and is vegetarian. We were all able to find menu offerings that were tasty and satisfying, though our guest found her chilis rellenos a bit spicy (she only thinks she likes Mexican food, I suspect). I always recommend Dos Perros to people who for whatever reason have never discovered it.
Really good first experience. Food was flavorful and the presentation was lovely. The staff was attentive and friendly. The margaritas were YUMMY. Will definitely be going back the next we are in Durham!
Lovely meal. Super friendly helpful staff. Camarones - delicious
Chocolate mousse delicious with a hint of spice
Food was delicious and unique!
We had tickets for a show at DPAC and it was a perfect location.
We had a reservation, were seated right away and our server was so knowledgeable in
guiding us to what we might like best.
It was DELICIOUS! We also enjoyed some vegan chocolate ice cream and that was a delight.
We will be back soon!
Outstanding foods. Finally found a restaurant with a good mole sauce--and not just one, but three variants. One notable appetizer (2/17) was a duck tamale with a slightly sweet mole sauce, rich enough to be a savory dessert. Everything I've tried here has been terrific. Not Tex-Mex at all, closer to actual Mexican cuisine, which is pretty complex. Kudos to the chef.
Always great food and service.
We were disappointed in our dinner at Dos Perros. Granted, it was Valentine's Day, but they put us in the basement, the service was slow, and the food not as good as we remembered it. We ordered guacamole as soon as we sat down and the waitress forgot it and by the time she brought it we were out of chips so we had to wait for her to bring chips. Same with a second drink. The sweet potato empanadas tasted like they were filled with bland baby food; the Caesar salad was drenched in dressing. The restaurant seems to have gone downhill. They need to change up their menu more. They need more vegetarian entrees besides the chili relleno.
One of my favorite restaurants! Great food, great service and awesome Margaritas. The brussel sprout queso is amazing!
Filled with tables of undergraduates screaming at each other .
Management should try to keep voices at indoor levels
If you are over 30 - avoid
We skipped desert & coffee to find quiet. So restaurant did not sell 4 deserts & 4 coffees- maybe $50 in lost revenue & we won't return.
Love this place. We live over an hour away, but most any time we're in Durham for a show, this is THE dinner stop.
Sat in the bar side - very quiet and pleasant. Fantastic service and food was superb.
great place to dine before an event at DPAC. Food and presentation great. A favorite for us.
Celebrated my birthday a few days late. We were seated promptly. It took awhile for the server to come by, but after she did, service was very prompt. Outstanding sangria. We will come back and try taco night.
7 person business meeting. Table was ready and waiting for us even though we were 10 minutes early. Great service and timing for a group of people having a business lunch. Great selection of food that is business appropriate without breaking the bank.
Always enjoy DosPerros. Great cocktails and at least a few options for the vegetarians and vegans among our group. Could do with a few more choices there.
