While staying in Marina Del Rey my wife wanted some Southern Fried Catfish so I pulled out my laptop and did a search, all creditable reviews said go to Uncle Darrow's. The establishment is in a modest part of Marina Del Rey which you may be missed if you are not looking closely. My wife ordered Fried Catfish, Red Beans... More

I love this place. The owner, Norwood, is a friendly, welcoming man who is justifiably proud of the authenticity of his food. The oyster po boy--to which I like to add fresh-squeezed lemon--reminds me of my French Quarter days. The beignets--well, I remember them as being lighter and being sprinkled with more powdered sugar--but these are quibbles. It's a great... More

Having lived in New Orleans, Baton Rouge and a current long time resident of the Gulf coast, I can honestly say that Uncle Darrow's is truly a taste of home in L.A. The gumbo is spot on and the Zeke poboy is the BOMB!!!!! The red beans and the cornbread will give anyone's mommy a run for the money. The... More

Has to be the best Cajun in town. How could we not have been in so long (years)? Best fried chicken around. Best beans and rice around. Great collard greens. And you just can't beat the service from the owner. Love that the meat is made fresh for you. Wish I had taken two pieces of cornbread! Everyone in there... More

We had just left Costco and were wondering where to eat, so we pulled into a parking lot right before Lincoln Boulevard to look up good places nearby. I literally looked up and there was Uncle Darrow's. My daughter was doubtful, but we looked it up, found good reviews, and decided to try it. Are we glad we did! We... More

Staff is amazing. Norwood is the best! Friendly, knowledgeable, and just very inviting. We were given samples of their GREAT sweet tea (they use Agave, not sugar) , gumbo, jambalaya and red beans and rice. All the samples were so good we have a tough time making a choice. Decided on the catfish, shrimp, cornbread, bean-balaya, greens and sweet tea.... More

I'm a "foody" so whenever I hear a restaurant has been visited by the Food Network Channel then I know they've got to have some worthwhile food! I'm a picky eater too so I don't try everything.. and I expect what I like to be GREAT! With that said, I didn't try the poeboy sandwich that was their featured item...... More
