This past Fourth of July week, the wife and I visited Branson, Missouri (as we usually do around our anniversary). Naturally, I was on the lookout for some BBQ. We had read some good reviews and heard some good things about Danna's. Their specialty is smoked meats, like sausage, pulled pork, pulled beef, ribs, and chicken.

Since I had already gathered some positive comments about Danna's BBQ, I was going in with some high expectations. I wasn't disappointed.

I decided to order the Big Big Pig. It's almost a half a pound of pulled pork served on grilled Texas toast with piece of sausage and french fries. My wife got the Beef Plate, consisting of pulled beef, french fries, baked beans and cole slaw.

Nothing could have been better. The service was fast and friendly. The meat and all the sides were delicious. Everything was very good and just as I had read about and was told.

One of the nice things that I really liked, was the fact that the meat (both pork and beef) was served without sauce. I like it when they give that choice of sauce or no sauce to the customer.

The meat was tender and perfect just as it was, which is how many people prefer it. But they also had some wonderful BBQ sauce at the table too.

It complimented the beef and pork very well. The sauce had a little sweetness and was a little tangy. I also noticed a hint of cayenne pepper. Not enough to make it hot, but enough to have that unique flavor present. I was impressed.

Since we only ate there the one time, I didn't get a chance to try their burgers (anther specialty, I hear) or the Catfish Sandwich, a local favorite. But if you find yourself in Branson, Missouri, I can definitely recommend Danna's Bar-B-Que & Burger Shop for their BBQ.

I'll be back.

All the best,
