Ate here with friends. Everybody enjoyed what they had. Good variety of offerings. Smaller portions than many bbq places. Very difficult parking situation.

We've been coming to Darrell's for a few years and always leave happy and full. Their BBQ is tender and flavorful. Mac and cheese with pulled pork is extra good - make sure you put some sweet sauce on top for over the top flavor. Save room for banana pudding!

I dined with a large group and we were in a private room. Our server, Micha, was so friendly and efficient. Our drinks were served in Mason jars and always kept full. The pulled pork sandwich was excellent with several delicious BBQ sauces from which to choose on the table. The menu included many side choices including black eyed peas... More

Great BBQ! The pulled pork has a delayed smoky flavor that is unforgettable. The all-american burger is worthy as well. You get to choose the sauce. Attentive staff, relaxed atmosphere and most importantly you sip draft beer from mason jars. Parking can be a little tight.

We have dined in and ordered pickup several times from Darrells! Their BBQ is great! The ribs, fall off the bone! The fried chicken is also moist inside, with a great coating on the outside! The pig wings for appetizer are also tasty! Service is great, and their new location is really nice!

My wife and I travel quite a bit across the southeast and look for those special places to eat that will draw you back time and again. Darrell's is one of those places. We just made our 7th stop at Darrell's today and every time both the food and service have been exceptional. Today I had the Pulled Piggy sandwich... More

We drove down to Venice from Siesta Key and had lunch here. Micah, the hostess and Gina, our waitress, welcomed us with open arms. I had the Shrimp and Grits, which the smaller size was more than enough and delicious. My mom, brother and father had wings, which they really liked too. Given the beach, pier and shops in Venice...
