Reviewed October 11, 2013

If you like BBQ, this is a good stop. The portions are large, staff is very attentive and the BBQ is great.

“Consistently Good”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

You know what you're going to get a Danny's. The wait staff is always attentive and the food is always good. Don't expect a 5-star dinning experience, but if you want a good BBQ sandwich or plate you won't be disappointed. Keep in mind this is not NC BBQ. Danny has great sauces if you want to top the meat, but it is not always necessary to do so.

Keep them in mind for a smoked turkey on Thanksgiving. I've been going to Danny's since 1996 and have never had a bad experience.

“Average at best”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

We ate dinner at Danny's on a Weds night. It was fairly busy but we were seated immediately and served rather quickly. This is not really bbq but rather "meat". You choice of meat is served and you add 1 of the 3 sauces on the table...regular, mustard or hot. There is no Eastern NC BBQ available. The plates come either 4 oz or 8 oz. I had the pork loin which was a little dry. My wife had the pulled port which she said was good. I had boiled potatoes and baked beans as sides and an extra side of Brunswick stew. It was nothing but lima beans and corn in a red sauce. When I asked the waitress if it I really got Brunswick stew, she laughed and said, "How would I know. I am from NC." Otherwise her service was timely and efficient. A slice of Texas toast is served with the meal.
The noise level was moderate. The atmosphere and decor are very basic.

“Good alternative to eastern style BBQ...”
Reviewed September 6, 2013 via mobile

While on business in the area I gave Danny's a try. The meat is smoked really well and appears to have a dry rub used during cooking. The meat doesn't really have a BBQ sauce on it when it arrives to the table but there are four sauces available to use. The slaw and beans were especially good as sides go.

“Favorite place for BBQ in RTP”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

I try to enjoy some Danny's every time I visit RTP. The hush puppies are always a great start and I typically get the brisket and pulled pork. Service has always been good and the prices are very reasonable for the good quality food that you get. Don't forgot to finish up with the Banana Pudding. Yum!
