It was a very interesting experience for a barbecue shack. I've been to a number of these restaurants over the years, and this one is the typical BBQ restaurant when you walk in. Family-owned, a lot of really nice people working and serving food. The restaurant itself looks like a barbecue joint, lots of barbecue paraphernalia all over the place,... More

This place is simply OK. Nothing was great and nothing was good enough to bring us back. Appetizer didnt come until after the meal. They have no bread other than texas toast and charge you per slice. I would have expected a lot more food on a 3 meat $20 plate. Just not as great as these reviews led me... More

Enjoyed the BBQ Nice flavor on meat and sauces were very good. The hush puppies were really awesome as was the banana pudding. Service was adequate. For the price it was a great meal, quite tasty, quick but not rushed.

Growing up in the heart of pork chopped barbecue, eastern style, Danny's does not suit my fancy for ideal Eastern North Carolina barbecue, but it is good for a change. I enjoyed the meal and will most likely go again in the future.

Danny's is a favorite with the staff personnel where I work. It's good, consistent southern BBQ with a nice variety of sauces. Service is FANTASTIC - get there early so you don't have to wait for a table.

I always like their barbecue ribs. Hmm. I get it prepared with the sauces on the side. It is always as good as expected.

This probably would have been a 5-star rating--until checkout time. My wife and I went for lunch. I had spare ribs, she had pulled pork. The meat and the sauce was excellent--some of the best barbecue there is. The waitress was friendly and fast, and had our food out to us within 2 minutes of ordering. The meat was warm,... More

They have the best wings. I order the same items each time, although the entire menu is great. Staff is friendly and welcomes you with smile.
