We have eaten here Many times and they Really do have the Best PO Boys in Town! The Shrimp and the Surf and Turf are my favorites. I also Love the Jalapeno Mayo!!

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!

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!

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.
