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.
