This is by far my favorite! We always order this, party wings and a side of jambalaya. The Zeke is the perfect combo of flavors. Tater salad on the bread is only way to go and get it fried. This place is like visiting family.
Being a Texas girl, trapped in Cali (just kidding, love it here) I was a little cautious about a restaurant that was bold enough to call itself a "New Orleans' grill"...well, let me tell you...it is DEFINITELY a taste of New Orleans. From the daiquiri machines, the music, the friendliness of the staff and the FOOD...it's all good. New Orleans is my 2nd favorite city in the world...I've spent a lot of time there, and I can tell you this place is as close as you are gonna get without being there. Kudos!
Excellent food, never disappointed and everyone is so friendly. Great atmosphere and I will definitely be back.
A great test of real South Louisiana cooking is the classic red beans and rice dish. Darrow's, you done good. No dish feels like love as much as red beans and rice. Tons of flavor. Excellent consistency and ratios. Perfect vehicle for lots of hot sauce. Darrow's has many many great dishes, but the loving bowl of simple beans and rice is my fave.
I'm not typically a fan of skinny cut fries, but I got the spicy Cajun fries and they delivered, flavor, flavor, flavor
Best po' boys in SoCal!
I wish they were the whole wing, but love these lil guys just the same. Legit fried chicken!
They know how to fry here. Always perfectly cooked & crispy, and not greasy at all. Very lightly covered with a perfectly spiced cornmeal crust, not a heavy batter. For hero status, add on a side of party wings!
Beignets, gumbo, red beans and rice. I loved it all!!
Really liked how friendly the owner and staff were. Food was good. Deserts were good. Drinks were good. Only wish you served some type of alligator dish or appetizer. But will be back for sure even though it's a 45 minute drive. Well worth it.
The fish tasted so fresh and was seasoned just right! The red beans and rice are my favorite. The hurricanes and the margaritas were the bomb. I love the atmosphere and the staff is amazing. The owner makes you feel right at home. A great place to go for a wonderful meal and a welcoming atmosphere.
THIS IS SOOOOO GOOOD!!! Had it twice.taken with me after my meal..it doesn't make it home! Taste like fresh bananas..love the nilla wafers..so much yum!!
I enjoyed lunch at my first visit here last week. I had the Slow Roasted Brisket Po Boy, side of greens and side of beanbalaya...also had the gator fries. Everything was delish. Po Boy was flavorful, loved the greens with a hint of spice and the beans and jambalaya was tasty. Gator fries were crispy and hot...with the bright green gator sauce..en pointe!!! Yum!! Finished off with the banana pudding. Seriously leave room for the banana pudding or take it home in the easy to eat in the car container..don't ask me how I know that!
I stopped by on my way home and grabbed the gumbo ya ya... I was pleasantly pleased with it. I thought the file gumbo was good until I tried the gumbo ya ya! It took it to another level! It was delicious!
I love the shrimp po boy and the red beans with rice,
Everything was perfect I sampled everything that they offered and oh my God it was like your mother or grandmother getting down in the kitchen let me make myself clear, your (black) mother or grandmother getting down in the kitchen and ever since they opened I have been coming at least twice a week and I live upstairs so realistically that's not good because whenever I feel the urge to eat I walk right downstairs.
I've traveled all 48 states as a truck driver, including State of Louisana many times, nothing campare to the "magical" rioux of Darrow's. Lucky me I live in LA and started with his first store near Santa Monica. Thanks Uncle Darrow for "Angel Dust on Earth!"
We had dinner on a Friday night around 8. The first impressions were okay as the parking was good, it was easy to find the restaurant and when we arrived the restaurant was mostly empty. Then we tried to order and trying to understand the menu options was not obvious. The staff helped describe the options and we decided on one Secret menu option (which btw is not a secret and doesn't require becoming a VIP member because the secret menu is listed on the wall). We ordered the Gumbo ya ya and the combo supper of shrimp and catfish. When the food arrived, it was on paper plates with plastic utensils...so this is more of a fast food place than a sit down, nice dinner restaurant. The ambience is okay but it was hard to determine noise level as there were customers at 2-3 other tables. The shrimp and catfish were breaded in heavy cornmeal and the cornmeal was all you could taste. My date had never had catfish..she still hasn't tasted it because of the heavy, dominating cornmeal. We ordered greens and rice and beans as the sides with the combo and they were okay. The gumbo ya ya had a good flavor but it came with a piece of crab that was, ahh simply put bad. Besides the poor flavor, the crab was not cracked and I had to ask for a crab cracker, which was made available and that is how I was able to get a small piece of meat and I stopped after tasting the small piece. While the service was okay to start with, once the food was served, the servers disappeared. No one came to the table to ask if we needed anything and then when I needed more water, I stood at the bar for a couple of minutes before anyone helped... while two employees sat at the bar and ate. Overall, we left half of the food on the plates as it was not satifying and we both agreed it was barely okay. I can't recommend Darrows unless you swing by and grab a bowl of gumbo to go. That would be the only thing I would ever consider if I returned. Which is doubtful.
Food was great
My wife and I went to the old location near the Marina on my shopping at Costco. The best Po'Boy in the LA area. I still need to get down to LB and say hello to Norwood
The file gumbo was delicious as always! Also got the zeke, my favorite po boy, and a beignet. So good!
great taste and best services
Every time I have been here I have never been disappointed. The staff have always been a great help. I would recommend that everybody take a day to see how great the food is..
The food was amazing
DELICIOUS! This was my first time at Darrows so I didnt know what to expect but the Jumbalaya exceeded my expectations! I would def get it next time I visit
Catfish, shrimp and oysters with jambalaya and greens. Also gumbo yaya
What collards should taste like!
Like grandma used to make 💕💕
The food was great. I will be attending again very soon.. Nowrood was a pleasure to talk to he gave me a great insight on how the menu works an even some great history.
The food was great & the staff excellant. Will be goin' back quite a few times.
Well 7/31/19-Wednesday was the first time I tried Darrow's on the word of my Boss. My goodness delicious, the catfish poorboy lunch with the bean balaya, was so big. You guys truly was not cheap with the meat. I had to unlock my jaw to eat my sandwich lol. an not wait to treat my friends there.
I don't know what it is about these beans I love..but they are so tasty. Great flavor!
I had the Cajun Bowl. Couldn't believe just how tasty it was. I enjoyed it so much, I went back a week later and picked up two. One for my husband and for myself. I will not share that dish with him again, because it is so good I didn't want him to ask me for another bite...I wanted it all to myself.
Very delicious highly recommend this dish. It is more than enough to fill you up and it is seasoned just right New Orleans Style for sure. I will be back real soon.
Ever since the store opened I can't wait to get paid every week to go enjoy myself.
just tried their cajun Fries last night! So good!
This Gumbo is the real deal. Great flavor and price and the service is always awesome. Norwood has always delivered with the Gumbo. I drive 60 miles to get my Gumbo fix :)
I have always wanted to try beignets so I hopped in my car after work last week and was able to try Darrow's Beignets. They were so warm and delicious. Excellent presentation as well. I made the best choice coming here. I am definitely coming back again for more! Good Job!
