Had the darrells special and the surf and turf on a different day. They were the best po boys I've had EVER. The surf and turf is my favorite. You'll need extra napkins for sure! I will certainly be back

Oh my gosh what a sandwich! Go early or you will have a wait. The Darrell Special is the best though I love the roast beef as well. Take the time out of your trip to visit this place!!!!
