Very good poboys and good folks. Roast beef was great. Place gets really crowded so go early or be patient. Portion was large and flavor was great. Just off the Interstate 210 with easy access.

At one time this was one of the best places to get a poybo. I have found in the last couple of years that they have put less meat on there poybos. Take all the meat on a large and put it on one half and you have an old darrells poybo. Way to pricey for a poybo with no... More

Get there early for lunch to save waiting because this place is ALWAYS full. The shrimp po boys are the best but try others as well. Can be crowded and loud but worth it for the food.

As a sandwich enthusiast, I've had my share from across the country, and the Darrell's Special just might be the best sandwich anywhere, including New Orleans. Now I will always love my Muffuletta from Central Grocery, and my Ferdi from Mother's, but anyone who likes a good sandwich needs to give this one a try.

Beer - A large selection and very cold. They also offer a pool table. 1 negative - it is a bit noisy - but that is... More

The food selection is very limited. Basically just Poboys, chips and refrigerated desserts by the slice. The Poboys are excellent and very generously filled. The place is mainly a bar and very popular as such. It is loud and does not lend itself to conversation during dining. The staff is very casual in their approach to the customer. If you... More
