Du-par's is a diner-style restaurant chain based in Los Angeles, California.

The first Du-par's was founded in 1938 at the Los Angeles Farmers Market by James Dunn and Edward Parsons, who combined their surnames to create the restaurant's name.[1]

The chain was purchased in 2004 by an investor group led by W.W. "Biff" Naylor, the son of noted California restaurateur Tiny Naylor.

Du-par's expanded in 2009 to include several locations from the bankrupt Bakers Square chain.[2]
