Recommended to us by our son

We arrived just after 12:000 pm. Very busy place. Finally found a table. Waited a couple of minutes for waiter. Placed our order and food was delivered quickly. Ice tea tasted instant. It was very good food. Used many napkins so the food was tasty and messy. I would recommend this place to people... read more

The menu is limited since this is primarily a sports bar but their poboys are absolutely the best in town. The roast beef with gravy dressed is just like those in New Orleans except Darrell's bread is different but delicious. You need a fist full of napkins to eat one.

Stopped by Darrell's for lunch while visiting the Lake Charles casino's. Since the place was ranked #1 by Trip Advisor, we thought "why not give it a try?" I honestly don't understand all the rave reviews. It's nothing more than an average sandwich shop in a below average sports bar. I had the shrimp po'boy. The shrimp were merely grocery... More

The Darrell's special is a good, be prepared to get it on your clothes. For a sports bar it is a good one. I prefer to drive thru.

I read the reviews and decided to try this place since I was in the area. It is a family type sports bar. The only food on the menu are sandwiches so do not expect to find crawfish or redbeans and rice. I asked our waitress what was the best sandwich and she recommended the Darrell's special or the surf... More

Great place to have a sandwich and grab a beer. It is seat yourself so when you walk in look at bar or a table that has not been bused. The bread is awesome. The menu is nice and short. I got the shrimp with jalapeño mayo which was awesome with ton of cheese. Like the title says, if you've... More

Some of the best sandwiches at Darrells anywhere. Close to the casinos. Most recently I had a surf and turf- messy but delicious.
