Special & Turkey are our favorites

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!

Always a stop when we travel to Lake Charles. The only negative don't sit close to the door on a cold day, the wind comes through. I felt sorry for the young lady collecting payments.

Been eating sandwiches at Darrell's Bar for years. The Darrell's Special is the most popular sandwich on the menu. The ham and cheese is very good and runs a close second. Bread is fresh and jalepeno mayo gives the sandwich the perfect kick! The sandwiches are consistent and always good. If you dine in or drive-thru be prepared for a... More

The Darrell's special is the best poboy you can wrap your mouth around. We get it to go bc of the smoky atmosphere in the restaurant/bar.

A sandwich to remember. The menu is very short, a handful of sandwiches, chips, and drinks. The bread is fresh, and the jalapeño mayo is a must.

Nothing else to say Once you try a Darrell's Special with lots of napkins and that flaky bread, you'll know what this place is all about

You wouldn't believe how awesome these Po'boy sandwiches are! I was here visiting some friends and they took me to Darrell's! The Darrell's Special is the most popular item, but I got the Surf and Turf Po'boy. Wow! Portions are huge and everything is delicious! Staff is friendly and they have a ton of good beers! If you're in Lake... More

This rather unassuming place serves the most delicious po boys I've ever had. This is a place we will be visiting again as soon as we're back in town.

Excellent food! The atmosphere was a bit bar-ish for our table of eight, but since it was lunchtime, it wasn't too bad. The Darrell's Special, the barbecue sandwich, the surf and turf and the shrimp sandwich were all excellent!

My wife and I took our 3 kids there on a saturday night around 5 or 6. Had hear great things about the sandwiches. When we first walked in I had serious doubts. It's a sportsbar primarily. So we sat at a sort of clean table and waited for a long time for someone to come get our order. The... More
