Love the Chicago styled pulled pork sandwich!! Now I gotta say that I passionately Hate coleslaw, but Doc's coleslaw isn't like coleslaw at all. It's sweet and it's perfectly paired with the pulled pork that makes it so tasty & savory. The atmosphere is welcoming.

Went to Dan's tonight for the first time. I had the Tri Tip sandwich and garlic fries. Both had a ton of flavor and the portions were enough to fill me up. The service was good and the establishment was clean. Family owned too, which was a plus. I will definitely be back, best BBQ in Modesto in my opinion.
