While passing through Pinetop on 260 we asked out TA app for restaurant suggestions near us. Darbi's was listed as number 1 and actual the nearest to us at the time. At almost 2pm the parking lot was full and from all the AZ license plates its hard to tell how many where locals and how many were tourists. After... More

We had dinner here with friends. We were passing through Show Low and scheduled a dinner out that night. We chose Darbis due to the excellent rating. We had meatloaf which it was enough for two meals and Chopped Sirloin which again was an excellent choice. We'd highly recommend Darbis but you better be hungry!

Just as I was beginning to wonder if it was worth dining out in the Pinetop Lakeside area we found Darbies and our hope was renewed. This is the place to eat good food and healthy portions. My husband and I could have shared our breakfast and we are both good eaters. Our omelette was loaded with fresh vegetables and... More

We picked Darbi's because my wife said it had a nice look to it nestled in the tree's, we pulled into the parking area and it was very busy at 12:30pm. After a short wait we were seated and the server's were right there getting our drink order and serving them. As soon as we closed our menu's the server... More

Good home cooking with great country barn style decor. We all ordered different entrees and loved every bite. The fried chicken was so crunchy that there must be a pressure fryer in the kitchen. Some dinners come with salad bar. We wanted to go to Darbi's Cafe twice on a two day trip, so that really says it all. Tucked... More

Darbi was not at the restaurant on the days we visited but we will be sure to send her a note telling her what a great staff she has. There were many staff members working on the 2 nights we ate dinner there and they were all hopping. Very busy, pleasant, and keeping up with the busy, busy pace. Paz... More

We read a lot of reviews before trying Darbi's and we're definitely not disappointed! Food was excellent and well prepared. We came in behind a large table so we waited a little while for our food, which was to be expected. The food was definitely worth the wait. We shared one cinnamon roll between four people and it was more... More
