Great food and good service in a funky building. Patio seating is a bit noisy with traffic nearby but not a deal breaker.

We went to Darbi's to get takeout and return to our cabin close by. They were quite busy but the staff was friendly and went above and beyond to make sure we weren't waiting too long. The food was terrific!

We went to Darbi's for breakfast. Don't let the exterior fool you. Everything you can think of on the menu. Good food and lots of it.

We sat outside which is very nice. Our food was delicious, you can tell the potato salad is homemade and the onion rings are not the frozen ones. I had the Philly cheese with onions and green peppers and my hubby had the pastrami Reuben, both were lean and delicious. Will be back again!

We found this restaurant to be delightful, with a wide choice on the menu. Food was hot and tasty and the coffee was splendid. It seemed to be crowded, but we were served quickly. The prices were right and the experience was completely pleasant.

They usually have wait times to get a table. This is because the food is great and well worth any wait time. You cannot go wrong here with the fast and friendly service even during peak times. You will walk out glad you went.

Escaping the never ending heat of Phoenix for Pinetop-Lakeside. We came about 11:30 on a Monday and just barely beat the rush. This place is busy all the time. Yet hostess and wait staff were friendly and professional. Had a great sandwich, grilled chicken and avocado on a croissant. Hubs had the romaine salad with strawberries and chicken. Service was...

Awesome Linda, thanks so much for sharing. Happy to hear you beat the rush and was served promptly, better than that was hearing that you both truly enjoyed your meals. :) Look forward to seeing you next time you're ready to beat the heat of the valley! More

Our first morning in Pinetop we had breakfast at Darbi's on recommendations of friends. It was very nice and reasonably priced. We liked it so much we decided to try it for dinner the next evening. Unfortunately, we were not as thrilled with the dinner. Possibly we just made bad choices.

I am so happy that you made it in for breakfast, and enjoyed it. Obviously I am sorry that you felt dinner was a disappointment, and I hope it will not deter you from coming back. If ever you are not satisfied with your meal here, please don't hesitate to speak with your server so we can fix. I know... More

We come up from the valley as much as we can to get out of the heat and eat at Darbi's. We purposely stay at The Holiday Inn Express that is walking distance to the restaurant. EVERYTHING we have tried here has been exceptional from their Saturday Prime Rib special, Shrimp Alfredo, Fried Okra, Stroganoff, Hamburgers and the always filling... More

You are as awesome as this review Karen, truly I am so flattered and "thanks" just isn't enough. I am sorry you have been missing the cream of mushroom on the weekends, as you know we tend to mix it up around here. I cannot make any promises, but if you call several days before you plan on coming in,... More
