If you are looking for a tasty and juicy poboy, Darrell's is the place. Casual atmosphere and reasonable pricing. A wide selection of poboys and other delicious food.

Great Food, very laid back place. Don't feel bad when you use about 20 napkins! It can be messy. No need to dress up at all, everyone in T-shirts and shorts/pants.

I love Darrell's. This is the best place around. The Darrell's Special is the best sandwich. We eat here often!

Started out with a few drinks at the bar, very good service, good choice of beers on tap. The food was also great, not a big menu, very simple, but perfect. Thanks to the staff at Darrels for a great time.

The roast beef with jalapeños mayo was excellent. The shrimp was very good but not outstanding. Th shrimp themselves did have any flavor. Service was excellent.

If you have never had a Darrell's po boy, it is worth a stop in Lake Charles. You will never be the same!!
