You can tell this place has been here for years. They know what they are doing, the bbq was deliscious. I had ribs and brisket. Ribs were meaty, and the brisket was very lean and tender. BBQ has a really good flavor, and the okra and potato salad was good. Had a great waitress that took her time to explain... More

Finding a place to eat at 8:00 pm on a Sunday evening does not offer many options in Carlsbad. Danny's Place was one of the maybe 3 places that was open and it was across the street from where we were staying so we gave it try. I had pulled pork that was served cool-the meat was tender but I... More

Must try the flip - it was great. Big portions. The brisket sandwich was very filling. Ribs were good. Chicken strips were like most chicken strips.

Lunch started with great service, then we had a great meal. The turkey and pulled pork were excellent and while the potato salad was good the cole slaw was great. Prices were reasonable and the place was clean we will be back for sure.

Got the 3 meat selection, portions were very generous, probably can be shared within 2 people. Only thing was the pulled pork and brisket was on the chilled side. Taste was good to my liking and the sauce was great. Would return, hopefully next time around the food is not chilled. Service was ok, but like any small town, the... More

Food was inconsistent. Dining area was comfortable. Service was so-so. They were busy so I am guessing the issues we had aren't normal.

Once was enough for me! The waitress was rude & slammed our plates on the table. I understand people get busy & rushed during lunch, we never complained while we were there, but after our one & only experience, we will not return.

We ate here twice in four days and it was very good with excellent service both times. You get plenty to eat and it comes really pretty fast after you place your order. They have some very good waitresses.
