Darrells is a diner, popular with students, seniors, families. They serve generous portions of homemade hamburgers, fish and chips, and other grilled food, and milkshakes. So popular is this diner, we had to wait maybe ten minutes to get a seat. The food was worth the wait. Service was prompt and friendly, and the price was great. We'll return.

6 of us was there last week for the first time and the food was really good. Famous for the peanut butter burger. We had to give it a try and we weren't disappointed. We all tried a different burger and all of them were delicious. Place is small (two levels) but you were in and out pretty quick. The... More

This was my third visit to Darrell's and it was, simply put, ok. My burger was good, not great. The Darrell fries were very tasty as was the gravy. The atmosphere is casual, and the servers were efficient, friendly and polite. Yes, I would go back but this restaurant may not make it to my favourite's list.

My boyfriend and I love the food and laid back atmosphere at Darrel's. We have been countless times and are never disappointed. Their burgers are delicious- my personal favourite is the hen den. They are gluten free friendly (awesome gf buns!) and also have great milkshakes. It does get busy but it's worth the wait if there is one!

Darrells offers a cornucopia of Burger selection. I want with the Sabroso, my family tried the Hen Den Burger. Personally I cannot fathom the idea of a fried egg on my burger but to each their own. The Sabroso was excellent (no egg) has a bit of a mexican twist with the avocado. The fries are also excellent, and you... More

The first time we visited Darrell's was on a whim on a snowy weekday walking downtown. Little did I know it would become my FAVORITE restaurant in Halifax! My favorite thing to order is the Snake Bites. If you love spicy food like I do...OH boy. My boyfriend even brought some to me when I was sick in the hospital.... More

We love the diverse food options here and always want to try some new dishes. Food comes quick and the staff are very personable everytime we come out (as a couple or with family/friends)! We certainly like the lamb burgers!

Had the Peta wrap, and I have no idea how they made it but. Really good to the last bite. The setting is a bit older and needs an up date, on the décor, but then the price would go up... So I think I just suited the whole vibe.
