Fast, friendly and delicious. Great place to have a quick lunch. Make sure to try the banana pudding!

Good place for a quick work lunch. Do it, just do it....get the three meat plate so you can try a few things, you won't be disappointed. Oh and this isn't your classic Carolina BBQ. There KC style sauces are great!

Oh my... Just had pork, potato salad and fries. Great barbecue place, great for the family and moderate price. I heard so much about this place and finally made it. **Check hours of Operation**

Cannot believe it took me so many years to try this place. Being in a strip shopping center, I had dismissed the idea that it was legitimate bbq. Man, I was wrong. Portions and prices are great. BBQ was good, brisket (which I am not a brisket guy) was excellent. Sides were on par. I am looking forward to coming back to Danny's to try some of the other items. Jump on this one!

Very good BBQ. Some of the best I've had anywhere. They also have several types of sauces that are delicious.

Had the Monday Special of St Louis Ribs w/2 sides, Baked Beans & Potatoe Salad. The ribs were outstanding & the beans were as good as I make, and that is fantastic. Great job, Danny. Highly recommend lunch there, M to F, 11 to 2.

The brisket was most excellent. The smoked smoked chicken and the sides I had were okay. Very reasonable price for the amount of food you get.

You will be hard pressed to find a better BBQ restaurant in the area. Absolutely the best!

Excelente! Very very good bbq, sides and fantastic banana pudding. Great friendly staff. You will not be disappointed and you will come back to get the biggest size plate the next time.

Great BBQ - even if it is "Texas Style." Choose your sauce. Always bumpin' environment that is popular with the RTP lunch crowd. Friendly staff. Very scrumptious sides. Nice slice of "Texas" toast. Would prefer hushpuppies. But, hey. Again - "Texas Style" BBQ. I stop in about once a week now. You should as well. (Even though NC BBQ is better - sorry. I'm a biased North Carolinian! But seriously -- good food here, folks.)

The St. Louis was great. My only criticism is that the sauce(s) is not labeled only the mustard was. My friend is from another country and would like know what she was going to put in her mouth.

We had the pull pork meal with sides, fantastic. Plus all the sides (coleslaw, potato salad, baked beans and green beans) we got were equally as good and don't forget the banana pudding!

One of the best BBQ places in the area. The best place shut down (Johnson family BBQ). I would go here any day any time for BBQ. Never a let down, always delicious. You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu.

I've been there several times and have tried the ribs and other items. Very good. The service is outstanding. Wish they would give you a bit more for the price

The pork, smoked turkey, corn nuggets, fries & mac n cheese were DELICIOUS! My only complaint is is that they are not closer to Duke!

Danny's is a nice place. The staff was very friendly and my order was filled quickly. I had the small brisket plate with mac and cheese and baked beans. The mac and cheese and baked beans were very good. The brisket was a bit dry and lacked some seasoning. I would definitely go back to try something else.

My favorite bbq and small business in the area. So good to see them open and operating as normal while others shake in fear. Keep it up!

Coming from Memphis we have a lot of bbq. I heard good things about NC BBQ. So I had to try it. The ribs were cooked really well. The flavor of the meat was well seasoned. Good food, but the ribs are St. Louis Ribs. Potato salad was good. The NC vinegar sauce was different. I'd give it another try to try the brisket.

Great food! Stop in every time I'm in town. Closes at 2:00pm

Solid BBQ offering in easy-going counter service environment. There's a mix of BBQ and fried foods here. I tried the brisket (as one might expect for NC), ribs (good), fried catfish (excellent), green beans (meh), mac n cheese (good), and fried okra (excellent). Danny clearly takes his frying seriously and that pairs well with BBQ!

Lunch this past Friday at Danny's was the usual good meal - less crowded due to the recent, rare snow here in Raleigh. 😁. The one thing I'd mention about this experience is that the chopped BBQ platter (which was very good) comes with two sides, if you want say mac n cheese and green beans as your sides, you need to purchase cole slaw for $1.99 (an additional side). Now this northern boy, now living in NC, loves his BBQ and cole slaw, so I paid for it - would be REALLY nice if slaw came with the BBQ platter, just saying.

I've yet to have anything less than a great lunch at Danny's. The only problem I've ever had was deciding which meat to order...they're all outstanding.

LOOOOOVE Danny's! My absolute favorite BBQ place hands DOWN! Their bbq is on point, super smoky and tender and their sweet sauce is 2nd to none! Their fries are perfectly soft yet crisp and salted to perfection. Do yourself a favor and try their corn nuggets too! Only complaint is that they're only open for lunch M-F and that's IT. Such a shame! There's no place nearby to enjoy BBQ on the weekend or evenings.

Absolutely fantastic brisket. Cafeteria style place, no real service. Self-serve and clean- up. The food gets the stars.

Always good! I've eaten here many, many times over the years and never had a bad meal. The BBQ is smoked which is why we love it so much!

This was my first time here. Very lean and good barbeque (pulled pork for those folks coming from the North). I wish they were open longer hours. This is a total gem of a BBQ joint.

Still one of my favorite work lunch stops. Great briscut, love the spicy BBQ sauce, banana pudding is to die for. You're served up quick most days but seating can get packed now and again. Ordering chicken fingers will take a long time for the parents out there.

Love that this is a family owned restaurant, but the bbq and sides left me wanting. Had the smoked chicken and brisket combo plate with green beens and Mac and cheese. Brisket and Mac and cheese were great, smoked chicken was just ok, and green beans were dissapointing. Otherwise everything was clean, each table had sauce and staff was very friendly.

Delicious beef brisket in very casual setting. I wish everything wasn't plastic though. Mostly engineering types from local RTP tech places eat here

Solid place. Consistent. Has been for years. Potato salad is unique and great! Also good for your heart as it makes you wonder if that was a vertically challenged individual standing behind you with a Trombone.........oh and the Brunswick Stew is made within the guidelines specified in the manual of being "from here". Notice i didn't mention the Meat. Because there's nothing to mention other than it's CORRECT AND PROPER SON!

Pulled pork, banana pudding were awesome. Brisket was dry but taste was good.

surprisingly good. reasonably priced, fresh, delicious, decent portion sizes, though I feel like they can give a bit more. friendliness isn't part of the package. Not mean or rude, just dismissive and unwelcoming. Despite that I'll be back. They have many options to try.
