Danken Trail BBQ is a must-visit dining experience on every trip to my home city of Monroe Louisiana. Unlike most of the other BBQ options in the trendy Richardson, TX area where dining options abound, NONE of them serve gravy with the poor boys. What's with that? And now very few serve gravy in Monroe, LA! But Danken Trail still does. Nothing beats a wonderful and meaty brisket poor-boy dipped in hot gravy. And the hand made fries dipped in the gravy are even better. The atmosphere is clean, bright and cheerful. The staff is mostly friendly and the service is fast! Better yet - the portions are large enough to share. That means you can pay less than going to a chain and have smokey and delicious BBQ for less. Kids love it. Mom's love it and Dad's appreciate the value and gravy! You can not go wrong with Danken Trail!

This place has been around for around 30 years. Mostly the same staff. That is a good sign. I eat there every month or so.
Real barbecue-this is not a chain. This is a local place
When I want barbecue, this is where I go. It's always consistent.
You can eat for under $10. The prices are good. Ribs,chicken,brisket, ham, and steaks on steak night. You get a large portion of meat and sides.
They built a new building several years ago.It did not change a thing.This is not a gourmet restaurant and it's not supposed to be. It's not fancy.
If you are in the mood for barbecue, this is the place to go.

Delicious, mouth-watering BBQ! This is my family's favorite BBQ joint in town. We love their brisket sandwiches & po-boys. Great, helpful employees & the place is always extremely clean.

I always heard about how good Danken Trail was. I believed it until I tried it. This is the most expensive BBQ in town and possibly the worst. Don't waste your time or money.
