A friend and I decided to give it a try and we both were pleased. We had reservations so we did not have to wait. The waitstaff was friendly and service was good. It was a nice atmosphere, lively and there is full bar with tvs. I ordered the pan-seared trout stuffed with crab meat and it was amazing! the... More

Had dinner here before we attended Wicked. It is a little hard to find as I did not see a sign on Magnum Street except for "open". We were a few minutes late for our reservation because of this. Service was excellent and friendly. Food was very good and unique dishes. Far from traditional Mexican food. Enjoyed a glass of... More

We visited Dos Perros after seeing a show at the DPAC & got there just before the place filled up. The wait staff was helpful & answered quite a few questions from our table. The food selections weren't your typical Mexican fare, & had some interesting items even though Mexican cuisine isn't my favorite food choice. The mixed drinks were... More

I travel to the bay area for work; and there are amazing authentic mexican restaurants such as Viva Sol/Palo Alto Sol, Flacos (Berkeley), Gracias Madre, etc; and I was really excited to find a place right here in the triangle with similar authentic flavors in Dos Perros. Pros: - Authentic ingredients including homemade habanero sauces, chipotle, adobe, guajillo, mole, etc.... More

You can arrive later on a weeknight evening for a less crowded experience. The staff will care for you as if you're the most important guest of the night. Yummy, great choices, and second what others say about quality of cuisine. PS: dimly lit! you may think it's closed on driving by. Don't miss out by mistake!

Make a reservation (at least on weekends)! Then go and enjoy the superb, creative food and the top-notch, friendly service. This is fine dining in an informal setting, not the much more widespread Americanized Mexican cooking found in so many restaurants. Duck confit enchiladas with mole, for instance, were tender, flavorful, and delightfully different from any enchiladas I've had before.... More

Spend some time here with business partners. It is rather small cantina but with very positive and friendly people working there. They offer interesting selection of foods as well as drinks. Just go with a flow and ask your waiter to select the food for you. I good really tasty quesadillias which went well together with couple of cocktails.

The service by the host, waiter, and chef were excellent- the highlight of the dinner. Food was very good and fresh. Small setting is cordial and close in to downtown. If you are going to the theater, Carolina or DPAC, this is a great stop for dinner. Recommend stuffed trout or Camerones.
