We vacation in Florida every year and Darrell's is the one place we come back to time and time again. Our whole family loves the place. They have great southern cooking. We love the Down the Keys Mac and Cheese, the gulf shrimp, and all the meats. Wait, did I mention the corn bread? Sangria? Desserts? It's all good. You... More

Picture this....outdoor BBQ style event, 200 people to feed under a tent and hot dogs and hamburgers are not going to cut it for this crowd. Thank you Darrell and your incredible staff for making our event successful. The food was amazing and tasted like each meal was prepared individually. The Brisket, The Pulled Pork, The "Flying" Pig Wings, Mac... More

Everything we ordered was soooooo good, crab cakes, Southern fried chicken, baked sweet potatoes, and the corn bread bread was delicious. Side tossed salad and Caesar salad were very good , too. Will definitely go back and certainly recommend this restaurant.

Just left Darrell's feeling very fat and happy. The pork, fries, slaw, and especially banana pudding were delicious! Staff was all friendly and extremely helpful. Darrell came out multiple times to make sure we were happy with everything and to chat - he seems like the kind of guy that you would want to buy from. We will be be... More

We came in about 50 minutes before closing with 8 people. They were very accommodating and gave us our own dining room with a large table. Out server was very friendly and happy to help us. We had a few good laughs with him. The food was very tasty and hot when it came out. Service was fast.

Husband, sister and I had a wonderful southern BBQ experience thanks to Darrell. The brisket was super tender and moist. The "pork wings" were delicious, the coleslaw yummy and the cucumbers and shaved red onions in a vinegarette. We enjoyed sweet potatoes and the cornbread was light as a feather and buttery sweet. The sweety faces in our group loved... More

Stopped by for lunch. Great brisket sandwich. Killer baked beans too. I wanted desert but exercised restraint. They looked great! The people are very nice and really care about the customers.

I've known Darrell for over 12 years and even worked for him for about a year when he first opened. I eat there pretty much once a week since he's opened 3 years ago. I love him and his restaurant and will continue to eat there for the rest of my life. So much home cooked food this is consistently... More

We have eaten at the restaurant and also events catered by Darrell's. We are from Kansas City, Missouri and have very high standards for BBQ. They offer a variety of meats which are all great! From the sauces to the entrees to the desserts, everything was delicious!
