Went there today and this place wowed me. For the real deal in Florence go here. Nothing but the best a few tables but get it and ride to the river.

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

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!
