The place is packed and noisy - just beware. But, the food is great. The banana pudding was only $1.00 when I was there - worth more than a buck. The shredded pork, green beans and slaw were great. They close at 3pm and might run out of some food earlier than that. Great place - try it

On my last visit, I was sorely disappointed in the brisket. I loved Danny's because it was always the same -very good. The brisket was very fatty. I haven't returned yet. If I do and this happens again, I will ask for a different meal and may not return. I love the location and before this, the consistency in the... More

Ate here after raving about Danny's BBQ in Cary. The food was good but there were several things that give this place a lower rating. First the chicken here was not as good as the one in Cary had less smoked flavor. Second they don't offer as many sides as the Cary location and some of my preferences like Field... More

Located at the corner of South Miami and T. W. Alexander, Danny's Bar-B-Que is tucked in a strip center. Plan store front, but just follow your nose. Danny's menu offers something for all who love pig. Not a pig lover, that's OK, Danny's offers beef brisket, chicken and turkey. Sides are also very good. My favorite lunch order: large chopped...

First time here in a couple years till Friday. The brisket was was good (though not hot) and the portion for the small platter was enough. The fried corn was chewy and really not edible but the brunswick stew made up for it....very good. The RTP location is only good for lunch during the week since they close at 2:00... More

First thing you need to know id this is not a NC BBQ joint. It does have chopped pork but the main attractions are the other types of meat. I usually get brisket or smoked turkey. Both are very good and the prices are not bad. You can pick from 1,2 or 3 meats on a platter along with 2... More

It has been about 2 years since I had eat at a Danny's but it had always been very good. I was in the neighborhood so thought I could get a great lunch. They were out of sliced pork at 12:45 on a Wednesday so I opted for the chopped. It was very finely chopped and had no flavor and... More

More Texas or Kansas City style. The meat is good as are most of the sides. Don't order their pulled pork. If you like NC BBQ you will be highly disappointed in this pork. Likewise their Bruinswick Stew leaves a lot to be desired. This restaurant is not a sit down & order place. You put your order in the... More

I eat here multiple times a month and I've been coming since it opened many years ago. The chopped pork and brisket are very good and so is the banana pudding. Arrive before noon to beat the crowd.
