The BBQ is very good. Hot dogs are good.. Price is fair... They have specials that are a very good deal.. They don't have fries or fountain drinks.. They don't get in a hurry here so don't go here if you are in a hurry... The workers are not very friendly... The place is very small... Even with all this... More

Simple fare...dogs and barbeque.....all good! In fact every time we are in town for family business Dick Howell's is a must stop! Spicy slaw and... More

Update on Dick Howell's BBQ: Everything remains great -- the best old fashioned BBQ/ smoked pork & ribs. However, their whole smoked chickens are the best around. The "smokiness" flavor is great. The whole chicken is $5.99 and better than any others around. For the best "old-fashioned Southern BBQ" experience, go do Dick Howell's. Take out or eat in! These... More

Bunyan's and Dick's Bar-B-Que with spicy slaw is unmatchable..... Dick's to me is better due to the cleaniness of the facility and the ability for more seating inside! A must try for anyone in Florence for lunch!

Dick Howell's BBQ has been a mainstay in Florence for approx 50 years. 4th generation now involved in operation. True southern BBQ, nothing fancy. Now has seating for about 20 customers. I've eaten at many BBQ places across the South, but I always go back to DH BBQ for a true sandwich & slaw dog. Bunyan's is good, too. Howell's... More
