One of few restaurants that have wonderful BBQ but also many choices of side veggies. Cabbage, baked beans, cheesy potatoes, potato salad, pinto beans, green beans, mac & cheese and dont forget the cobbler. Yum!

Danny's has decent BBQ. Pretty much our only option in Athens. The other little BBQ shack in town is inconsistent and over rated. Danny's pretty much the same every time you go..
