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!

Don't let the two buildings with the same name fool you! Follow the crowd. I wasn't too impressed with the establishment itself It's basically a worn out sports bar. Not a family friendly place unless you don't mind your kids listening to loud crappy music and looking at all the neon liquor signs. The menu is very basic...alcohol, subs, and... More

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

The menu had 7 items on it. All were sandwiches. Since it had such high recommendations, I ate there. I'm not a sandwich person, but this was really good. I chose the shrimp po boy, and it was really good. The beer was very cold. The service was excellent, and folks were friendly to an old man like me.

Darrell's Special is my favorite with the jalapeno mayonnaise. Good, drippy, messy sandwich with great flavors. But, this is a sports bar, so very noisy, busy, TVs going, smoky from cigarettes. Very busy at lunchtime. Best to call in or go by early to avoid lines. Reasonably priced. Can request 1/2 sandwiches.

Apparently this place is well-known, but we had not previously heard of Darrell's and were therefore surprised by the awesome poboys. We were a complete mess when we finished eating because the portions are huge and loaded with fixings. If we ever return to the area we'll definitely revisit.

Eaten here multiple times, never any complaints. Favorites are the shrimp po'boy and Darrell's Special. Always get mine with jalapeño mayo every time. The food is always excellent, hot, and served quickly. Fantastic staff and atmosphere, especially on weekends during ball games. Big screen TVs and pitchers of beer = great place to meet up with friends!
