Best Western Recommendation was right on!

Arrived at dinner time and were seated in the "heated" patio of the restaurant. We were warm the whole time in spite of the chilly weather outside. Super generous portions of their fish special which included 4 shrimp and 2 HUGE cod filets, plus salad bar and potatoes. We could not eat it all.

I was in the area on business and had not a few people tell me I needed to eat at Darbi's before leaving town. On my way home I went a bit out of my way to make good on that promise to visit. The food did not disappoint. The bacon has to be some of the best I have... More

This quaint little town has the best restaurant around. You get huge portions at a very reasonable price. We ate on the patio & watched deer, in the forest, across the highway.

My Husband and I ate at Darbi's Cafe 2/2015. The "Homestyle" cooking is delicious! It's full of calories, butter and etc... just like the old days. The Cinnamon Rolls are the largest I have ever seen and didn't disappoint! If you don't mind eating all your daily allowed calories for the day in one meal this is the place for... More

The food is dependable American food. The patio has nice views. I had the wings and they were good. We usually get the onion rings for appetizers and they are always fresh. Others at the table had salads and they looked plentiful and fresh.

The burger was amazing, grass fed beef with all the works. The sweet potato fries were exceptional too, and the staff helpful and friendly.

You have to try the Cinnamon Rolls with nuts! If you love "The Place" in Flagstaff you will love this place. The cinnamon roll was as big as a kids face! Warning you may want to split a breakfast if you order the cinnamon roll first. From what we could eat the breakfast was awesome as well. We didn't eat... More

Had breakfast on Sunday. We had to wait about 10 minutes but worth the wait. Ordered strawberries and banana parfait with granola it was enormous and fresh. My husband ordered a meat omelet which was as large as the plate and strong coffee with vanilla creamer. Second time at this restaurant every single plate coming out kitchen was plate sized....

My family and I visited Darbi's during the holiday on Saturday and Sunday which are their busiest times and it was wonderful both days.

Loved the rooster pictures all over the place (could be French in influence and that's a good thing), very clever and well done decor. You can tell the owners are paying to attention to detail. The food (important part) was very good. Very relaxed atmosphere. Only issue is the parking lot is a little cramped but worth the effort.

Thanks so much for the positive feedback. We are always happy to hear that people enjoy their entire experience. As for the parking, I couldn't agree with you more! Believe it or not we have almost doubled the parking lot when the patio was built, but it just can't be expanded anymore. The staff does not park there in an... More
