Ordered rib dinner for 5-7, pint of pudding, 2 sides, and 2 drinks. Ribs were were old. Seem to be short of ribs, but it was the small size. One side was not correct. Will not return. Or recommend.

This is a popular place for my co-workers and I to stop for lunch. You can get in and out in an hour and the food is consistently good. Try the trail special!

No matter what time of the day I call for catering Mrs. LOUISE will go out of her way to accommodate what I need. The food is always fresh and hot and hits the spot. Can't say enough good about this place!

My husband and I shared a large po boy on Saturday and it was really good. Brisket was tender with a lot of flavor. Great for family.

You can eat in or take out. Serving line approach means quick service. The meats are good but not world class. I like the chicken and brisket but would avoid the sausage. The meat is not very smokey. The veggies(sides) are really very good. The employees are very friendly, which is rare in north Louisiana.

It is an absolute delight to dine at Danken Trail in Monroe. My wife and I visited recently for lunch and ordered the three-rib barbecue plate with baked beans and cold slaw and bread.
