Over the years my wife and I patronized the Marina del Rey location many times, trying just about every plate special, a sandwich or two, and jambalaya and file gumbo. Of course we always added a side of the delicious vegetarian bayou greens. Loved the warm welcomes by I believe Uncle Darrow and staff. Because of distance I've only been to the Carson location once to meet up with a friend who lives in Los Alamitos. Same great food and welcoming vibe. My wife and I must create a reason to swing by Carson soon.
My husband and I first started eating at Uncle Darrow's 10 years ago when the restaurant was situated in Marina Del Rey. The catfish, shrimp, collard greens, tater salad, jambalaya and peachy cobbler have always been our favorites. The food is always of quality and tasty. Every time we eat Uncle Darrow's food we get a little taste of New Orleans.
Love the the greens.
When you're in the mood for a little something sweet after your delicious meal, the Cobbler is the way to go.
They call it a classic for a reason, you can't go wrong.
Perfectly coated catfish and shrimp over a bed of potato salad, eat this with Darrow'a green sauce, and you will not be disappointed.
The perfect side if you don't want an entire order with your Po'Boy. Just like everything at Darrow's it's delicious and will leave you wanting more.
Love this place and especially the people. The food is fantastic and you feel so welcome. Glad they're close to where I live!
It just doesn't get better than this jambalaya!!! I would drive 20 miles in the midst of a pandemic on my birthday to get some of this ... wait, I just did!
OMG WHAT CAN I SAY, BUT WOW. FLAVOR EVERY TIME I TAKE A BITE I WANNA SLAP SOMEBODY ELSE'S MOMMA NOT MINE BECAUSE SHE SLAPS BACK LOL. BUT IN ALL SERIOUSNESS UNCLE DARROW THE FOOD YOU PUT OUT TO ME AND MY ELDERLY PATIENTS KEEPS US FULL AND HAPPY. THANK YOU SO MUCH TO THE STAFF FOR STAYING OPEN DURING THIS PANDEMIC ❤ 💕. GOD BLESS
Their French bread doesn't have too much butter or oil on it and has a faint garlic taste. Yum!
Shrimp was Fried to perfection. The batter is very tasty. Bean Balaya as a side is something you won't regret and definitely won't forget. Been coming since the Marina, glad the food is the same.
This food and the overall experience was amazing! I'm so happy to be part of the Darrows family and to get a taste of home out west!
I really have to give this restaurant five stars. Everything we ate was delicious. We also ordered the Chicken Wing Supper and the 32 oz Rum Punch (which took us, who rarely drink alcohol, a couple of days to finish). It was a lot of food for us, which turned out to be a great second meal. We ordered late on Father's Day and they were out of macaroni and cheese, but we were still very satisfied. They have a nice selection to choose from, so not sure what we will order on our second visit, but I do want to try their macaroni and cheese.
Where do I begin. Uncle Darrow's food is authentic, tasty, and just right! Last month when my family visited the restaurant for takeout, I ordered the jambalaya and it was perfect. It has the right amount of seasoning, not greasy, made with chicken sausage and the right portion size, so I could also enjoy a sample of my husband's food. When you eat at Uncle Darrow's it is like eating back home in Da Boot! Real food with flavor!!
This is the best Po'Boy place in Los Angeles hands down. The batter for the shrimp is great, the sandwich is perfectly roasted and satisfying. I can't recommend this place enough especially for people who have never had New Orleans style food
We have been getting the Zeek Po'Boys since the Lincoln days and they are to die for! The potato salad is a perfectly creamy pair to the crunchy shrimp and catfish. Everything about this po'boy is perfect and just thinking about it now makes me want to go get another one!
These cajun pups are so good. Perfect amount of heat with such a good flavor.
I've been ordering the Shrimp Po-Boy since I was five, and have never been disappointed!! Perfect bread, perfect crunch on the shrimp, 10/10. If I was on a desert Island and could only eat one food for the rest of my life, it would be this.
I have been coming to Uncle Darrows since 2006 when they were on Lincoln in Marina Del Rey. I fell in love with the gumbo and the blue crab they use. I have tried almost everything on the menu. There is no disappointment with this restaurant. I'm so glad they moved to Carson, I work in Long Beach now so I try and stop in every other week for Gumbo, hurricane, and wings
The most delicious gumbo I have tried, just like my mom's gumbo!
Fried and seasoned to perfection. Dip it in the green sauce and you're good to go.
We ordered these to try something new off the menu, and were SO pleased. Will need to order two next time because sharing was not a good move. Left us wanting more!
All you need to know, is that you NEED to order this. Perfection in a dish. Soooo good every time. 💕
Tucking into this po'boy takes me back to a spot on the waterfront in the French Quarter watching the Natchez cruise on down the Mississippi! This is the real deal!
The mild grilled shrimp is the best and wish I could eat it everyday. I have not had any shrimp in California that tastes as good as the grilled shrimp in this restaurant. I wish Darrow's sold the shrimp in larger groups instead of the pack of four, but does not matter - the shrimp is so savory I will always add it to my order.
My hubby and I split this dinner tonight and it was just right. 4 pieces of catfish and 4 shrimp for him and 4 plump, delicious oysters for me. Darrow's has the best fried oysters hands down. They are larger than anywhere else I have had them and always nice and plump. Have a bite for me if you order them!
Love the spice of this dish. It had great flavor and though spicy wasn't too hot! I feel like this one is a healthier options with the red beans in it. Love the greens, but they were out :(. I will definitely order this again.
Best Po'Boy's I've ever had! I've tried other places but none come close. I always have to have it when I go. Love the wings as well!
Delicious, tasty, not greasy.
I have been coming to Darrow's since they first opened their Carson location. I appreciate the staff and management team. They always have been a pleasure. I have not had an item on their menu that dissatisfied me. I love supporting local businesses. Whenever friends come and visit this is the place I bring them
The hospitality of the staff at Darrow's is as good as the 32oz Hurricane. There is always a sense of appreciation and welcoming friendliness every single time I go there, which is weekly.
I tell everyone that this is the best Po'Boy place in Southern California. The batter is just like how they do it in New Orleans. The Catfish is good, the shrimp you can't go wrong. I'm glad this place has expanded its hours again
Got these for my kids, ages 6 and 7, and they were DEVOURED! I managed to sneak a bite before they finished and it was delicious. Super soft bread, and perfectly seasoned chicken with all the yummy toppings. Will definitely get this again.
Amazing fresh catfish. Seasoned perfectly and was served nice and hot. The big plus with the food here is that the presentation is always on point! I love to eat where I see that the food looks good. Also There's always quality service from really good staff! One of my favorite places. have that good old home feel.
We were introduced to Darrows's last year. Been coming every time we're in LA, we live in Orange County. The quality and quantity and atmosphere brings us back. We're originally from Florida, so the flavors are there. We order the catfish red beans and rice, or catfish and grits) always creamy), my husband orders the fried chicken but states that it's kind of salty other than that I would recommend Darrow too as many people that ask where too go for good down home cooking
Gumbo, peach cobbler, sandwich all the food is delicious all the time.
