It had been a while since I have been here. I had forgotten how good the Darrell's special is. We were there at 1:30pm no waiting table for four. Drink order taken within one minute after seating. I met 2 of my grandchildren and my son here. We had a great lunch and visit. The girls had cheese bread and pbj pies $3 each


Busy busy but they get in you in and out pretty quick. The sandwiches are great and everyone should try the Special at least once of they are staying in the area.

Best po'boy I've had. If you want something truly delicious, this is the place.

Awesome jumping bar, with bar food done right. Great music, chill staff, great sandwiches on homemade buns, gravy and they got all kinds of meats. Try the jalapeño mayo. I got the roast beef and gravy on white roll, the works. My mister got the BBQ beef with the works... mustard jalapeño mayo lettuce etc. Of course we got a bag of chips and a coke. Great food, great bar, great music, great prices,... what's not to love... thank u Lake Charles Louisiana for a bit of local flavor.

Walked in at 732 and was told we could only order to go, since they closed at 8. Went to bar to order and was approached by bartender. She said they had already called last call and we could not order, it was 736! We told her we were from San Antonio and had just read their write up in Texas Monthly and her response was sorry if you know anyone who wants to work you can send them our way. She said it was posted EVERYWHERE that they stopped taking orders at 730 . . . we didn't see it anywhere. We asked to speak to a manager and conveniently we were told there wasn't one on site. Poor customer service, no communication among staff as to serving hours, no signage for customers, and overall very disappointed.

Lots of parking. We got seated closest to the door. They honestly should have that as a table because people kept piling up next to it between waiting to be seated and waiting to pay. The service was good for a place that busy. Our server was very friendly. I got the Darrell's Special. Although a bit messy, it was quite tasty. I really enjoyed the couple of jalapenos that added a very small kick to it.

we came in at 7:10 and they close at 8:00 but we were informed that they stopped seating 15 minutes prior to us coming in. what is the point in being open that late when you can't even sit. not saying you should be able to come in 10 minutes before the place closes but it was almost an entire hour before closing

Visiting from San Antonio and looking for a quick bite. Yelp did not disappoint on this place!! So so good. Great service. Simple yet flavorful menu. Very friendly and fast. Will stop here again before we head home.

Great spot for lunch basically right off I-10. This was a perfect quick stop during our road trip. Try to call ahead if possible because it's popular - but the wait is worth it! Shrimp was great, but the surf and turf with gravy was something special.

You NEED a Darrell's Special in your life!!! Stop here and get a large Darrell's Special. Though it looks very much like a bar we stopped with our 5 kids and enjoyed the friendly, respectful atmosphere.

Get the Darrell. Best sandwich on the planet. Great spot.

I was taken to Darrels by a lovely friend since this is the first time Ive stayed a decent amount of time in Lake Charles and its an Institution. They swear by the poboys here, and I was of course going to put it to the test.I got the Darrel's special (with jalapeno mayo) on her advice and it was a wonderfully meaty and juice sandwich! So moist you'll want to map up the residual gravy and mayo however you can be it left over bun, vickis jalapeno chips, and of course off your fingers. Couldn't recommend it enough!Staff were friendly and took care of us at a moments notice. Cant wait to show my own out of town friends this place!

Tried to go eat with my son after a hard day's work last night (06/11/21). Approached the door at 7:57pm on a Friday night... Only to be met on the sidewalk and rudely informed by a young lady that "Our kitchen closes at 8pm"... Then, she abruptly wheeled and went back in the door, ignoring my inquiry as to "Why?".A restaurant/bar that closes at 8pm? SMH...
