Enjoyed the BBQ Nice flavor on meat and sauces were very good. The hush puppies were really awesome as was the banana pudding. Service was adequate. For the price it was a great meal, quite tasty, quick but not rushed.

Growing up in the heart of pork chopped barbecue, eastern style, Danny's does not suit my fancy for ideal Eastern North Carolina barbecue, but it is good for a change. I enjoyed the meal and will most likely go again in the future.

Danny's is a favorite with the staff personnel where I work. It's good, consistent southern BBQ with a nice variety of sauces. Service is FANTASTIC - get there early so you don't have to wait for a table.

This probably would have been a 5-star rating--until checkout time. My wife and I went for lunch. I had spare ribs, she had pulled pork. The meat and the sauce was excellent--some of the best barbecue there is. The waitress was friendly and fast, and had our food out to us within 2 minutes of ordering. The meat was warm,... More

They have the best wings. I order the same items each time, although the entire menu is great. Staff is friendly and welcomes you with smile.

This is a family oriented business that you will still feel very comfortable walking in alone. Their sauce is vinegar based and the food is amazing!

Delicious and reasonably priced. Great value. Pros: The Food! I had wings, bbq beans, potato salad and hush puppies. Excellent. Huge chicken wings, smoked then flash fried. Perfect with their sweet or hot bbq sauce. My sister had the 2 meat special with fried corn on the cob and potato salad. Potato salad os creamy. I think it must have... More
