If you want a good Bar B Q sandwich or slaw dog this is the place for you. They pile the meat on and the slaw is the best I have ever had on a sandwich or hot dog. The prices are reasonable, I will visit again.

I ordered the rib dinner with beans and slaw as a takeout. The restaurant is very small as described online with the majority of the food I assume taken out. While it was only a short trip off the main drag, I was very glad to have GPS to navigate to the restaurant. The ribs had won "best" at a... More

Service at the counter is quick and efficient. You can eat in or take out. I usually eat in. Space for that is limited but adequate to savor one of the best hot dogs on the planet. The BBQ is excellent too, but I get that to take home, to share with my wife. They have the best slaw I've... More

Visiting the town to see "Muscle Shoals has got the Swampers" Crossed the river to eat and Bunyans was recommended. We were not disappointed - the owners were friendly ... the other guests too. The ribs we tender - with a gresat crust and tasty. Maybe the best I have had in a long time. We did not try much... More

I admit there is a chance better barbecue exists somewhere in this country. The only reason I accept this possibility is that some people like their pig wet and sloppy rather than dry and neat. This east coast/Midwest difference adds a layer of regional subjectivity to the debate and I am not prepared to wade into that quagmire. What I... More

Bunyan's has been around for as long as I can remember. Best BBQ ever!!! Wonderful anytime, but a great standby for out of town guests when you need a quick meal. Great family and employees are loyal and stay there forever.

I dropped by yesterday to try Bunyan's BBQ after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor. I ordered two slaw dogs and a regular BBQ sandwich. I was blown away by the spicy mustard slaw on the dogs ! The spice was just right not too spicy but spicy enough for a little kick. The BBQ sandwich was delicious as well. The... More
