I ate here several times in the last month as I working down the street from this sandwich shop. Get here early for lunch because it gets crowded. I love the Rueben (hot sandwiches and salads are ordered at a seconded counter in the back of the shop). The roast beef was also very good. It is a gem of... More

Darby Dan's has been in South City for 40 years or so. Why is it still in business? Because the sandwiches are good quality and reasonably priced

Excellent made to order sandwiches. No frills deli feel, lots of locals. On the corner from my hotel. I had the half crab/and shrimp salad. Portions sizes are generous. Loved the jalapeno kick.

Crab salad sandwich on Dutch Crunch was worth every penny of $8.75. Darby Dan at $8.95 enough for two. This place is a find on your way to catch your flight.

I have had lunch from Darby Dan's for years. Mainly picking up and bringing back to the office for meetings. GREAT sandwiches - always very consistent. Never had a bad experience but be sure to specify what type of sandwich bread/roll you want. Most sandwiches come with a specific type. Can't go wrong with Darby Dan's!

The sandwiches here are very huge and tasty and are priced very reasonably. The staff are very polite and friendly and prepare the sandwiches with plenty of love and this is evident in that they very neatly made and not sloppy.My personal favorite is the " Piccolo " which is a 3 meat combo consisting of Ham,Turkey and Roast Beef...
