Bunyan's also has truly wonderful hot dogs. Long and slender, in a small bun (I didn't know they made different size hot dog buns!) steamed to perfection, loaded with Bunyan's famous slaw, nothing else is needed. I dare you to leave after eating only one!

My hubby has been taking me here to get BBQ for almost 20+ years. This is some of the best BBQ you will ever put in your mouth, plus the hot slaw on top just tops it off as the winner of BBQ around this area. Can't leave Florence without a trip for take out BBQ to take home. Outstanding!

The place is a typical carry out BBQ place in Florence that has been around for ever. The BBQ pork is very good but the slaw is what keeps me coming back. I also have to get a slaw dog while waiting on my order!

I love this BBQ. For my taste Bunyan's has the right amount of smoke and overall flavor. The hot slaw is the perfect sandwich topper. I also can never leave here without one of their hot dogs, again it's perfect with the hot slaw. Add a bag o Lays and a Coke and you have a feast!

I doesn't get any better if you're looking for simple, good, and tasty food. BBQ sandwich is a classic favorite. If you want a good hot dog, this is the place! Their slaw dog is great, but get 2.

Take-out place with the best barbecue in the South. It is cooked in a pit with hardwood and served with a spicy slaw that was invented at this restaurant. The slaw and sauce are sold for miles around in grocery stores; I saw the sauce in Mobile.

As someone using TripAdvisor to plan a vacation I often find restaurants off the beaten path. This is one location that I would have never found where it not for TripAdvisor. I was specifically looking for places to try BBQ. After spending a week in the south, and eating BBQ several times along the way, I did not find the... More

Picked up a BBQ plate with a generous serving of BBQ pulled pork, hot slaw and potato salad for lunch. Droved a short distance to McFarland Park at the river's edge for a plate picnic! OH so good BBQ. Located on the westside of Florence near ECM hospital is the best kept secret in BBQ. Just a small place BUT... More
