Craved Bunyan's BBQ for 33 years!!

I grew up in Florence, Al and moved away in my early twenties--33 years ago. Off and on throughout the years, I've craved a Bunyan's hot dog soo bad! And the sandwich--both covered in their incredible hot slaw. Finally, on a recent trip, I had time to find Bunyan's again, and get my fix! Once... read more

There is no better BBQ anywhere. As proof: I have literally craved BUNYAN'S slaw dog and pork sandwich since I moved to Az in 1982. I've been back to Florence a few times since, but they were quick trips with no opportunity to find Bunyans. (They're kind of hidden down from ECM hospital, but I didn't remember). I just returned...

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 coke. Others however do... 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.

Our first trip here won't be the last, we had rib plates which included sides. Ribs done just right, excellent slaw, potato salad 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
