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]

The Du-par's Restaurant & Bakery inside Golden Gate casino in Las Vegas, which opened in 2010, closed for "financial reasons" on Feb. 7, 2017.
