Place your order at the bar near the kitchen. Food delivered hot and fast. Full rack of ribs and brisket and pulled pork ( meat only). Added some veggies and a salad when we got home. Great meal.

Our table of 11 each enjoyed our individual orders. Delicious bar-b-q and great service. Always enjoy coming here. Views good. They handle our large group with ease.

Darrell's is by far the best catering. He is so professional, polite, and caring to your needs. He also gave me extra servings for free. If you need catering for a good price and a lot of food, Darrell's is definitely the place to go....More
