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

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.

Bunyan's is less than a mile from where I live. I don't eat there often but whenever I decide to have a bbq sandwich, this is the best. I laughed when I read the review mentioning the women working there looking like they were having a bad day. I have to confess that the woman who usually takes my order... More

...is the one on this website. The two women behind the counter acted like they were in the midst of the worst day of their lives and looked at me like I just made it worse by walking through the door. I ate a three rib sandwich. The slaw turned the bread soggy, but it tasted great. My advice...get it... More

If you like a good hotdog you need to try Bunyan's hotdogs. The ice cream is also very good and the drinks are very cold.

As Shoals natives, we visit Bunyan's before going to our home house. And, I hate to admit it, we stop by Bunyan's on the way out of town. Even though Bunyan passed away recently, the service and food are still GREAT! WmLeroyKennedy

We recently visited Florence again and had the opportunity to pick up a pulled pork sandwich with hot slaw and a half chicken with white sauce plus some baked beans. As frequent partakers of bar be que we have rarely found anything better. Prices are reasonable. This is not a typical sit down restaurant so be prepared to order and... More
