If I want something easy just for me to run by and grab something to be able to sit down , I never feel uncomfortable. The potato salad and catfish are my favorite . One of the owners was a former owner if a popular catfish place so it is always good. The pulled pork sandwich is big enough to... More

My first visit here and I didn't know what to choose. My nephew who has been here before suggested the pull pork sandwich. Got the sandwich some baked beans and dirty rice. The sandwich was a pretty good size and the beans were sooo good. The rice was as well. The taste of potato salad that I gotten from my... More

Their BBQ is spot on, but the fried fish is the best in town! You can't go wrong with whatever you order here! It's set up cafeteria style with lots of seating.

There were several choices of meats and side dishes. I was offered a slice of sausage and rib, to help me make an informed... More

These folks are friendly and know how to do BBQ! We we were a family of five with growling stomachs and were ready to eat! The smell overwhelms your senses when you walk in the door, your mouth is watering and taste buds are tingling! In being a larger family we were able to taste all of their meats and... More

Danken's Trail did the catering (food) for our family reunion. They did an EXCELLENT job. The food was 'hot' and delicious.

Awesome tasting bar b que plus the home made bread and banana pudding are well worth the trip. This is a locally owned restaurant with a staff that you can tell really appreciates it's customers and wants you to enjoy your meal. The potato salad was a little mustardy for me, but that's just a personal preference and not a... More
