“Outstanding food...great prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

Stopped by for lunch on my way out of town. What a treat. Had the brisket sandwich and it was great. Cheap too. Place was packed and it was 2pm on a weekday. Didn't think much of the looks on the outside but don't let the exterior fool you.

Incredible Po Boys. Surf and Turf is my Favorite. Must try the Jalapeño Mayonaise.

“best sandwiches ever...no really”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

this is my favorite place to go when I'm in town, or just driving through, its right off the 210 loop, super easy to get to. the sandwiches (darrel's special in particular) is the best sandwich anyone could eat, its really messy, but they provide plenty of napkins. cool little place, it gets a little crazy at night, but its awesome for lunch.

“The special is fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2012

Wow. That's all I can say. Probably gets really busy because the food is so good and cheap, but I went early for lunch. If you are near here, this is simply a must.

“Po' Boys”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

Darrell's has a college town, casual vibe complete with a crowded bar scene. Now this is certainly not a temple of haute cuisine; however, if remarkable po' boys are on your radar, it's a must. The menu! What menu? It consists of seven po' boys/subs/grinders/heroes and a variety of chips. No fries here, baby! Any of the choices are stellar. Be certain to include their jalapeno mayo as an accompaniment. It will not overwhelm with heat just add to the savory quality of the ingredients. Recently, D's has opened in neighboring Sulphur. The joint was jammed at noon on Saturday.
