Completely agree - been to Darrell's a few times, nothing special at all. First Watch, a few times - and wonderful all around. Can't wait for their new location.

Perhaps the person responding earlier, extolling Darrell's, was... Darrell.

It would great if there was a restaurant that offered something besides breakfast & lunch--we never eat breakfast and or lunch out--just go out for dinner 3 times a week--something different would be appreciated

No big surprise regarding what you said about Darrell's.

At best, while I know they do have a following (which I will never understand), what they "turn out" is very mediocre.

They win the prize for portion control, what they serve seems to taste as though it comes out of a pre-fab package and their bread is . . . . meh!

Price and convenience, IMHO, is what drives most restaurants in TV, quality is a distant 3rd--after hearing people praise mediocrity, time after time--all I can say is , nothing--they'll never get it

Darrell's can't hold a candle to First Watch. I hope FW opens one in Trailwinds.
