“It's Descent Food In A Clean Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

You may not get an exquisite meal at Darrell's, but you are likely to get fairly basic fare at a fair price. My last visit, I had ordered the Reuben sandwich for lunch. My opinion of it is that although it was as much bread as it was meat, it was still pretty good, at $7.95 (w/fries). I would have preferred they charge an extra dollar, and packed it impressively full with meat instead of the sandwich with spaces that was delivered.
The place is almost sterile looking inside as it lacks any sort of color or decorations, which is o.k. if they are going for the school cafeteria look. The waitress's are efficient enough though often hurried as it appears bus help is lacking.
Darrell's should do well even if it's because food options are lacking in the area.
Parking is plentiful.
The restrooms are clean.

“Darrell's Diner a good place for Breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

I have been to Darrell's 3 times now for breakfast. It is one of the cleanest restaurant's I've ever been in. The staff is personable and friendly.
The food is good, the service fast. You are greeted almost as soon as you get seated. They have a never ending coffee pot going so the coffee is always fresh and hot.
The breakfast is very good. Not a big selection but adquate for a breakfast menu.

“The best omelette I have ever had”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Great food. Good portions. Great price. Not a fast food joint. Phenomenal breakfast there. If busy, the food is worth the wait!

“Just Ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012 via mobile

Tried the new location near OTOW and it was just ok. Chili lacked flavor and tasted like tomato soup. Fries were cold and hamburgers ok. For sure not as good as Five Guys. Given the mediocre food was shocked at the cost, $43.00 for four burgers and drinks!!! Checked the block and won't be back can get better food and for less cost elsewhere.
