The restaurant is a truly Chicago restaurant / bar. Good hot dogs, large food portions, awesome sandwiches, and decent beer selection. Cool atmosphere! Not a place to go if you are watching your diet or eating healthy. However, the food is delicious. The customer service is slow, not to friendly, and takes a while to get your food. Overall good...

I honestly love DT Kirby's food. They specialize in Chicago-style dogs and large portioned bar food and excellent sandwiches. I've never had anything at Kirby's I didn't like. However, when the owner states that one cannot have ketchup for fries or a knife to cut a sandwich, I have a real problem. I don't give two whits what the people... More

Amazing bar food. The fried mushrooms are my favorite. The staff are very friendly. A fun atmosphere to hang out or catch a game.

This is not a place to eat if you are trying to watch calories, but if you're in the mood for wonderful burgers, dogs, and fried stuff...this is the place. Interesting menu rated on messiness is to be believed. The awesome sauce is just that...I frequently find another member of my party that wants to share a burger as they... More

First I should have just sent it back. It was the noon-hour, the place was slow for lunch this day. I order a Chicago Dog they specialized in these!!! They make a big deal about how you can't put Katsup on your dog! But is was warm/cold.!! Fries piping hot, dog was barely warm, and it came right out of... More

Best burger I've ever had! The Mac 'N Nap Burger can't be beat! Four cheese macaroni and bacon on toasted pretzel bun!

This is a very unique bar restaurant. The atmosphere was fun and friendly. The food was beyond exceptional. Out of the several menu options our group ordered, each was better than the last. DTKirbys is an experience everyone should make the time for in the Lafayette area. I plan to make another trip back just to go there!

My husband and I needed and half way point to meet our son from Chicago. Went on trip advisor and checked out a few restaurants. We decided to go to dt Kirby. What a great choice. The owner came over and talked to us and was so much fun to talk to. He told us the history of the business... More

Don and Trish are the best. The breaded tenderloin sandwich, paired with mushrooms, is heaven in a basket. Be hungry or split it with a friend.

Very unique decorations. Bar like atmosphere but family friendly. Burgers are not only huge but very tasty. Good service as well. One of the best if not the best burgers in Lafayette
