Menu was quite limited and not the usual Mexican food variety. Service was good and manager was very friendly and accomodated us despite not having a reservation on a busy night. Might consider returning to give this another try since I believe the menu might change frequently

We went on the recommendation of a friend of somewhere to go before DPAC. Were very please with our meals. I ordered the Pollo al Mole. It was beautifully presented, and so good! My friend ordered the swordfish and really liked her meal too. Our waiter was great! They have vegan and vegetarian options and a nice bar area. Street... More

They have a limited menu on Monday nights. Burritos or tacos. A couple of advantages. Not crowded and really, really good burritos. This is not your typical Mexican restaurant. Their regular menu is a bit pricey, but reasonable on Mondays. They have a nice bar with a wide selection of drinks and mixes. We had a desert Chimi that was... More

A group of us had dinner at Dos Perros before an evening show at DPAC. The location is terrific. We were very happy with the choice. Food was good(Pork Carnitas had great flavor!) though the menu was a bit limited. A bit pricey for Mexican but I guess you pay for the experience.

Not a "normal" southern Mexican restaurant. Good food, but a bit too frou frou for the flavor actually provided. Need to focus more on their basics. ProTip: Go on Sunday which is taco night, totally worth it.

Excellent place with very good, reasonably priced mexican food - I am vegan and it is easy to accommodate those needs. Drinks are yummy too; service is about 4-5/10 but the rest I would give an 8

4 star service, 5 star drinks, 3.5 star food, 4.5 overall experience. The food is good fare. Its a great spot for both lunch and dinner. They don't rush you, the drinks are great, the service is always top notch, the al fresco dining is wonderful as well. The only reason I give the food 3.5 stars is bc of... More

Had lunch here on a Saturday and found it an all-around 'great experience.' I had the Barbacoa (braised beef) burrito and it was delicious. Definitely well-sized, enough for a hearty lunch, to share or to take some home with you. I shared a few bites w/my friend but pretty much ate the whole thing. The beauty of it is not... More

I'm not a huge Mexican food fan, but my son is so we kind of went here on a whim yesterday (Saturday) around 1 PM. Not very crowded, the servers were as Caucasian as could be -- how good could this be? The answer: very good. My son loved his tinga de pollo platter, and my Tostado de Camarones was... More

My son and I are in Durham for treatment at the Duke Medical Center. Got in the night before his appointment and decided to have a nice dinner. Someone recommended Dos Perros as "high end Mexican'". The restaurant is attractive and located in what appears to be a part of town that attracts students and young professionals. The staff was... More
