The poboys at Darrell's are a long time area delight. Surf and Turf is my favorite!!! Sliced roast beef and sauteed shrimp cooked in roast beef gravy and homemade butter sauce and jalapeno mayo. They have domestic, import, craft and premium beer.

sample 3 sandwiches --all superb --a little messy as the restaurant was full we did takeout and the sandwiches leaked through the paper bag. A really good beef bar b q sandwich but spicy--small was plenty for lunch

I would love to be writing this review about the food, unfortunately we didn't get to try any. I really didn't want to give a rating, but I had to. They do not honor posted open times and they really don't care. Poor business practice....More

The Darrell’s original is absolutely delicious! You must try it and the cheese bread. This local favorite is a must do! If your driving through... STOP! You will not regret it. Bring your appetite.

Darrell's makes great sandwiches. The Darrell's special is especially good. We order from our office frequently and everyone enjoys them.

The poboys here are delicious. I love the Darrell's Special with the jalapeno mayo. Get ready to use the napkins, as these are very messy, but SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO worth the clean-up.
