They serve a great breakfast menu for lunch. Expansion should be completed by the spring/summer of 2019.

Came here on a family vacation from the valley. Very friendly staff. Food was good. Nothing special or exciting. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Would likely come here again, but mostly due to the fact that it was good enough to not risk trying anywhere else.More

We stopped for lunch . I ordered the chicken salad sandwich and my spouse ordered the fried chicken meal. Both were more than ample and delicious. The service was friendly and efficient. This is the best restaurant in the Pinetop-Lakeside area.

We had two breakfasts: one was scrambled eggs and with 2 sides-grits and sausage gravy and biscuit. The other was huevos rancheros-scrambled eggs, chorizo, and refried beans. The service was outstanding and everyone was very friendly. We both highly recommend Darbi’s for a delicious breakfast.

I agree with the above comments about the folks being SO accommodating. If it is not on the menu, my guess is that they will find a way. This is a special place for sure! Quantities are "overwhelming!". Service is great.
