This is noisy, fun, sports bar. The menu is sandwiches only and there are lots of beers to choose from. This is NOT the place to take kids. I had the Darrell's special and it is one of the best "sub" sandwiches I have had.

Darrell's is a great sports bar/restaurant. Their Darrell's Special sandwich is one of the messiest and best in town. You can always find a TV on the game you are interested in!

This was not my first time here, but I hadn't been for a while. It was lunch time so it was crowded. It did not take long to get atable. For being as crowded as it was, the service was fine. Although there is a good choice on the menu, I had my usual large Darrell's special sandwich with jalapeno... More

This was my first but certainly not the last time I'll be there! Coming to Lake Charles is a treat for me, and this place is a treat itself! The Darrell's special is soooo good! All the flavors go so well together!

Only in America could a Sandwich Bar take best Trip Advisor best Eatery in a town boasting 209 restaurants! A Darrell's Po Boy is nothing short of brilliant, I first came here 19 years ago and the locals swore by it then and things have not changed. It had to be a special and for me it has to be... More
