We had pulled pork and brisket. Melted in the mouth good. Service was excellent as well. We were checked out by the owners daughter. We would highly recommend Danny's Place.

I had the ribs and it was beyond my expectations. My partners had the brisket, the pulled pork and the chicken and all loved their food. The service is really good. The atmosphere is nice and welcoming. A great place for BBQ.

Pink, smoky, saucy ribs were some of the best I've ever eaten. Waffle sweet potato fries set them off well. This is also a good place for burgers including the quintessential New Mexican favorite, green chilly burgers.

I was left standing too long at the entrance before being seated. I ordered ribs, fries and coleslaw. The slaw was nice although quite sweet. The ribs were really poor. I prefer ribs cooked with the sauce anyway, but the meat was poorly cooked - it certainly didn't fall off the bone. The waitress was pleasant enough but there was... More

Went to Danny's Place recently for dinner. It was such a great experience that my friend and I returned the following night. The BBQ is excellent and is reasonably priced. The wait staff is wonderful. Each person was friendly and pleasant to be around. I highly recommend! :)

During a visit, a quick call and short drive to get a great meal to enjoy in my room! I was full and my pocket book was not hurt either. Will do it again soon!

Ribs were meaty and brisket was tender. Portions were large. More side choices would have been good. Prices were good. Wait staff was friendly.

We came here for dinner after a long day of hiking in Guadalupe Mountains National Park. We arrived at 6pm on a Sunday without a reservation and were promptly seated. If you arrive any later than that, you might have to wait for a table. Both of us ordered the BBQ brisket dinner and shared the sides - coleslaw, fried... More

If you love the flavor of meats slow cooked over hardwood, you will love Danny's Place. I had the ribs, and they were some of the best ribs I have had, and we always seek out BBQ restaurants. My wife had the brisket, and it was very tender and flavorful. If the delightful BBQ smells outside don't get your attention,... More
