This family owned business has been serving fabulous poboys for many years. You will need more than one or two napkins as they are very juicy....you will not be disappointed.

Great place to grab a sandwich and conversation. Make sure you have plenty of napkins because there is no way to eat their sandwiches neatly but it's worth it

I have enjoyed Darrell's special Po'boy sandwiches several times a year for well over 20 years. They are the BEST sandwiches available in Lake Charles. Make sure you have plenty of napkins handy because they are drippy. Just ask for a Darrell's special and you won't be disappointed. They have a drive through window where you can either place an...

Really disappointed after reading such glowing reviews! Couldn't wait to try the roast beef cooked in a special gravy...more liked cheap sliced deli meat swimming in juice that sogged out the best part of the sandwich, the roll! The waiter was probably snickering behind our back when I said we planned to save some for tomorrow, knowing perfectly well it... More

The Turf and Surf Special was a really delicious and spicy po boy. I have never had a po boy like it. Plus when our group arrived for lunch with no reservations the plpace was packed. The management got us in right away and took care of us really well.

For a great sandwich at a great price you can't go wrong with Darrell's. Fast service, great selection of food, and great value for the price.

I travel to Lake Charles 4 times a year. The first stop I make when I come to town is to Darrells. When you go there you must order the Darrell's Special. It is a Ham , turkey and roast beef sandwich with lots of cheese that is topped off with a roast beef gravy that rocks your taste buds.... More

The menu has only a few items but what's available is so tasty you won't want to pass this place up. It's a bar/pub and the sandwiches are delicious. Nothing fancy, just a fun place to gather and eat some good grub!
