Dear Community,
Thank you for the many encouraging words and texts, as always it is such a privilege to be part of this incredible community.

To the many that have reached out wanting to help, here is a way to donate some money. These funds would go directly to help pay our staff for hours/ tips lost due to the current crisis. Remember that many in this industry are not eligible to apply for unemployment. For now stay safe, be kind, and be of service to others.

With deep love and gratitude,

106 S. Wilmington Street
Raleigh, NC, 27601

About us

Centro was born from the hearts of Angela Salamanca and her uncle, Carlos, who shared a love for art, and fresh, authentic Mexican cuisine. In 2007, with the help of countless friends and family, they opened the doors to Centro in the heart of Downtown Raleigh. Since that day, Centro has become a unique reflection of the people who have worked here, the customers, and the community surrounding us.

Supporting our community is very important to us and we love seeing it grow. We pride ourselves on using as many fresh, organic and local ingredients as possible to provide you with healthy, flavorful food as well as to support our local farmers.

Our mission is to serve you the best locally-sourced Mexican and Latin American cuisine, innovative margaritas and cocktails, and to give back to our wonderful community.

Centro is a place that has grown from our hearts and is here today because of you, and for that, we are forever grateful.


Our team loves gathering the community to taste new dishes and celebrate life with their loved ones.
