SWEET DARLENE’S RESTAURANT & BAKERY Sweet Darlene’s Restaurant and Bakery is a true American success story. Starting out over 20 years ago in a small food vendor tent, the SDR&B grew and expanded to its present location in the big white building at the east end of town where they can now serve over 100 hungry customers at a time. They started the first Friday night Fish Fry in Quartzsite where they serve Jumbo Cod fried in a special beer-batter. Other specialties include their famous Reuben Sandwich, Steak and Shrimp, slow-cooked Half-Rack of Ribs, and best of all, real mashed potatoes. Sadly, Big Ken passed away a few years ago, but Darlene and her loyal staff have kept the tradition of home-cooked meals going and have added some new menu items as well, such as Key West Chicken, Hawaiian Salad, and Coconut Shrimp. They have added home- made soups, such as Chicken Soup and Trucker’s Soup (vegetable beef) and home-made Chili, all of which come with home-made corn bread. She has several varieties for Gourmet Burgers and sandwiches including pastrami and Cordon Bleu. She has a different special everyday such as Petite Steak on Tuesday for only $5.95 for lunch and Big Steak only $7.95 for dinner. Mornings you can smell the home-made Pecan Rolls and Cinnamon Rolls baking when you walk in to the restaurant where breakfast is served starting at 7am ‘til 11am and features 10 breakfast specials for under $5.00 like the $2.99 bacon and egg special which comes with toast and hash browns. On the way out you can pick-up bakery treats to take home such as her home-made pumpkin nut or banana nut breads, strudel, and a wide variety or cookies and cakes. Their cream pies are made from scratch, such as their Banana Cream, Coconut Cream and Chocolate Cream pies. For breakfast, lunch or dinner, Sweet Darlene’s has the best food and prices in town, so treat yourself now and bring a friend or meet a new friend over a cup of delicious coffee. 776 E.
