Stopped by Danny's for a quick lunch while shopping nearby. I was in and out in no time as I had to get back to work. The fries alone make this restaurant worth the ride. Can't wait to come back again!

I have had burgers all over the Country, and Danny's convinced me today they are the king. Great "joint" to get a quick and classic drive in meal. I live in NW Conn. and will get to Danny's any time I drive through Stratford.

Danny's is a little spot popular for lobster rolls, and everything fried. Considering the price of the lobster roll, it was a disappointment. The lobster was dried out and tough, like it had been sitting in hot butter too long. There are a few tables outside but it's on a heavily trafficked service road to I 95 so there is... More

We stopped here for lunch on a visit to CT. I longed for a lobster roll only to find out they only serve those May-Aug. We just missed the cut off so I had to settle for clam strips. They were plentiful and delicious.

This is something that should be on Diners Drive-ins and Dives! This place has some really tasty food and cool setup with the order in and dine outside!

Pictures look better than the place actually is, bit grubby but food ok, reasonably priced. I had grilled cheese and bacon sandwich and soda $6. Nice to sit outside but lots of traffic and noisy as under the 95

The food isn't gourmet, but it's the ambiance that makes it that much better. Going old school and getting food at Danny's is a nice break from the hustle and bustle that the food business has become. It's fast and it's good....what else can a person ask for. Love the clam strips and black and white shake.

I've been coming to Danny's for 50 years. Without a doubt, the best double cheeseburgers, dogs and chocolate shakes period! Enough said.
