We each chose to have the club and it was delicious and came with a LOT of french fries. I ate half of it there and the other half for dinner! Yummy! Haven't had breakfast there yet but it's on my to do list!

Darby's is always musty go to when in Pinetop-Lakeside. Food is always hot, fresh and good. Be prepared for a wait on busy days and times but the wait is worth it.More
