Dos Locos was originally started by two crazy women in 1992 as a Take-out Taco stand, turned restaurant. They decided to open another restaurant around the corner with a bar (10 N. First St). In 2000, Darryl and Joe (current loco Mexican's) were on vacation and looking for a change, when they saw the For Sale Sign on the window. They were fans of Dos Locos for its Food & Margaritas. It was PERFECT! Only opened 6 months out of the year and vacation for 6 months. WOW!
Joe would quit his job immediately and Darryl would follow suit with a leave of absence in June. The restaurant was a huge success. Menu upgrades cosmetic changes and staff upgrades from where the girls had taken the little 56-seat restaurant. September 11th, 2001, was there first scheduled day off of their 1st season. Staff called to watch what was happening! That day changed everything! Seeing what had happened and knowing that Darryl's primary job was going to cease due to traveling, they decided to make a real go at it and stay open year round. That winter the long lines continued.
The second summer was even more successful with the restaurant. In September 2002, a friend came into the restaurant, to let the guys know that a restaurant was closing and a larger space was available. They quickly, jumped on it and in April of 2003 made the move to 10 Wilmington Ave. they're success continued for the next couple years. Driving down Rehoboth Ave one October morning, they saw a new vision!
Dos Locos currently owned and operated by Darryl Ciarlante and Joe Zuber since 2001. It is open daily, where you will see many of the same faces each week/year. Between servers, bartenders, chefs, cooks and host staff. We are very proud to have grown and still kept the same quality in a fun, relaxing atmosphere where you can get good food at a reasonable price with great service.
