Great food. Most had breakfast but I thoroughly enjoyed my walnut chicken salad wrap. It was full of chicken and walnuts and raisins and lots of fresh romaine and sprouts. I’ll definitely have this again.

We love Darbi's! It's always great! The portions are enormous and two people can fill up on a shared meal. Everything is very good, homemade, and filling. The parking lot can get interesting on Friday nights and weekends, it's small and in a forest.

We have been to Darbi's for breakfast a ton of times. The service is great, the staff is friendly and the food is generous and very tasty. Sometimes a small wait due to the popularity, however, certainly worth the wait!!

We were visiting friends in Pinetop. They suggested we have lunch at their favorite local restaurant. So off to Darbi’s we went—in a downpour. We learned very quickly why it is their favorite. We had a “Super” waiter, Chris, and four different but equally tasty...More
