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

This small, no tiny, little BBQ joint was a nice surprise for lunch today. The hickory smoked BBQ pork was some of the most moist I have ever had. The restaurant doesn't have any seating available so be prepared to take the meal home, eat in your car, or make a little picnic on the nearby lawn. GREAT spot for... More
