“An old favorite, but so-so food”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

You can't go to Laredo and not go to Danny's at least once--it's been around the city forever, and everyone seems to end up there. Be prepared to be addressed in Spanish--Laredo is a very bi-lingual city and most of the servers know some English, but it's assumed that customers will know Spanish. It's a basic diner-style restaurant--just one big room with lots of tables, and an area for live music performances. Although I'd recommend trying it, the food I've ordered (mainly breakfasts) has not been very impressive; the suiza sauce on the chilaquiles tends to be pure melted cheese, and there's surprisingly little flavor in this or some of the other dishes, like the omelettes. With some judicious use of salt and salsa, the food improves, but it can come out of the kitchen very bland. Although I have never tried it, I have heard the pozole and menudo are very good.

“Love the caldo talpeno”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

I ate at two of the Danny's locations while in Laredo on business. I had to stop again for the soup, because it was great. I enjoyed the consistencies in both locations I visited. The diner-like atmosphere makes for an enjoyable visit, and the food is great. The wait staff were friendly above average, and the food served hot and fast! I really enjoyed the caldo or soup and the small size soup with rice is more than enough to fill you up!

“Way overpriced”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

Cost 3 of us $30.00 for breakfast, for standard fare, service was decent. Food was fair, but not worth the price tag.

“Good local food”
Reviewed May 1, 2012

But a waitress who speaks English can be hard to find. Still, it's a local chain with a wider than usual selection of Mexican food. The soup is genuinely local.
