Great local bbq with a unique flavor

Bunyan's opened I think back in the 70's by the late Mr. Cole and has been serving the same delicious bbq sandwiches and slaw dogs ever since. Although they have numerous other items on the menu my favorite is the large bbq sandwich, inside meat with extra sauce, a bag of bbq chips and a diet... read more

As a certified BBQ judge with the Kansas City Barbeque Society, I have eaten lots of different BBQ. Someone told me I should go to Bunyan's to eat BBQ. Their food is fairly good, it is inexpensive. The pulled pork is a bit dry, my ribs were slightly overcooked with a good flavor. The sauce is good and looks to... More

Best bbq in florence al. Would recommend to anyone visiting the area. I had the chicken and my husband had the pork. Both were great. Not to dry like some of the other places in town. Definitely worth a visit. Check them out if your in the area.

Simple, but good bbq. I have had better, but nothing to complain about. Inexpensive and definitely a hit with locals who were in and out in a steady stream while I ate my pork plate with the spicy slaw (definitely different and good) and beans.

Choice of a few sauces all which are very good to excellent (we bought a bottle to take home). It's a small place with limited seating inside but has outdoor seating for nice days. moderately...

This little place is off the beaten path, but well worth it! This is one of my "comfort foods" and I highly recommend it. Love the BBQ sandwiches with spicy hot slaw! Delicious!

We went to Bunyans by recommendation of the lady at the Frank Lloyd Wright house not too far from the restaurant. It was definitely a little hole in the wall type place with a short menu but delicious food. We got slaw dogs and pulled pork slaw sandwiches and they were great. Service was quick and the food was good... More

Delicious food at amazing prices. Authentic BBQ with spicy slaw and the hot dogs are the best I ever had.

The Ribs,pork sandwiches,and slaw dogs are great.They have been great for the 30 years I have gone there to be greeted by "what you want?". They will smoke your turkey or other meat for a reasonable price.
