We stopped in here for lunch today based solely on its TripAdvisor rating and were not disappointed. My Santa Fe salad was huge with lots of chicken and avocado... and my wife's burger was excellent. Service was good as well.

I ordered the country fried steak and eggs and my husband had the French toast. Both meals were very good. Very generous portions and home style cooking.

Absolutely the best club sandwich I have ever had, no doubt. Add on their curly fries and enough for two of you.

I have been to Darby's before, back when I did eat meat. My husband and I have chosen to be vegetarian and went to Darby's today on a trip to Pinetop. There are not many veg friendly options but there are some. They are only wraps. With it being such a cold day we asked if there was any way... More
