The best chicken fried steak I've ever had, there was actually more meat than breading! Small but tasty salad bar with greens & usual toppings, plus pickled beets, coleslaw, potato salad and macaroni salad. In addition to the salad bar, the meal came with an ice cream sundae bar. Server was friendly and food came quickly over the supper hour.

We eat at Danny's quite often. The buffet is incredible. Like the salad bar too. The best coleslaw and crab salad. Best to time your dinner. They get very busy around 6:30 or 7 so if you want something off the menu it might take a while. Weekends are definitely time to get the special or buffet.

We eat here often. Never had bad food here. In fact it has always been good. Their buffet is usually excellent. The service has always been good and the place is clean. Being a Sports Spot you might expect a lot of TV's but there aren’t. There are some though. Easy to get to right off Highway 59. Generally down... More

This restaurant is homey, and, to me, an out-of-towner passing through, it seemed to be the gathering place for the community. And for good reason! The menu choices are ample, the prices are reasonable, and the food is tasty. The decor is All-American: the walls are filled with photos of many of the town's young people in uniform who have...
