If you go to Darrells it's an absolute must to get this poyboy! It's a restaurant during day and has a night life(bar) for those you like some entertainment. Delicious food

Love the roast beef poboy! Best in Lake Charles. No need to purchase the gravy, Have plenty of napkins on hand, you'll need them.

We came here based on a recommendation from a neighbor. We were new to the area and wanted something regional. He raved about the Surf and Turf Po Boy so that's what we got. We took his advice and called in our order, it was a good thing we did because they were very busy. About 30 minutes later we... More

Darrell's is a gem--great po-boys! The Darrell's Special is a hit. My personal favorite is the roast-beef po-boy. Try this place--you won't be sorry!

The spot is the best poboy in town by far. If you are in the area stop by you will not be disappointed.

We stopped in between lunch and dinner because we had not eaten since breakfast. Our Darrell's sandwiches filled the bill. I got mine less spicy and my husband got his the way he likes it-with Darrell's special mayonnaise. Messy, but some of the best sandwiches in town.

We'd been hearing from the folks around Beaumont, Texas, about the fantastic sandwiches at Darrells . . . . so we drove the 60 miles to go and try them! We loved them! It's a place that knows what they do well, so they do it! They keep their menu limited to what they know they're best at - sandwiches!... More

You're not going to find tables adorned with fine linens here, just advertisements from local businesses and some of the best sandwiches you have ever put in your mouth! Friendly service, family friendly and incredible bread combine to make this place terrific! Almost good enough to drive over from Houston just for lunch!
