Fresh, Locally Inspired Mexican Food -

Destino opened its doors at the light in Chatham in 2007.  Our chefs, hailing from the famous Mexican food regions of Oaxaca and Puebla, adapted authentic recipes and preparations for our small town tastes: Vegetarian and gluten free friendly, with a moderate heat level and a menu featuring traditional, modern, and tex-mex Mexican favorites.  We also use seasonal produce, foraged ingredients and local meat from the great growers and farmers in our region.  

Famous Margaritas & More

Every day we juice fresh lemons and limes, cook up our house simple syrup, zest organic limes for homemade cordials, steep tequila infusions - all to create the region's best margaritas.  From our popular classic, casa or signature  specialty margaritas, to top shelf 100% agave tequilas, classic cocktails, sangria, wines & locally brewed beers, there is something for everyone  on our full drink menu.

Deck Dining, Large Parties, Events, Catering

Nothing is nicer in summertime than sipping an ice cold margarita on our patio - and  in the cooler weather and year round we welcome you to our vibrant  interior dining room and  window seating.  Be sure to book online or call for reservations, especially on the weekends when we fill up very quickly.  We can accommodate large parties, and even do hosting for private events and pick up catering.

The best deal in town - for only $18.50 you get a choice of 7 appetizers, a variety of entrees and either a dessert or drink!
