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

This is a great place to grab a sack full of sandwiches and hotdogs and head to McFarland park. Not much seating, bottled drinks and chips. Great food, you never know who will be in line.

The BBQ at Bunyuns is always so good. The service is fast. If you like slaw the slaw dogs are very good. I recommend everyone to try this place.

Good BBQ and good slaw dogs. Just anticipate you'll blow your calorie intake for the day. I really love this kind of food, but I certainly couldn't eat it everyday.

I have been going there my whole life! Amazing BBQ, known for their slaw, and only one if it's kind! Hole in the wall place but definitely don't judge the food by the appearance of the building. All the best food is found in places like this.

I've eaten BBQ all my life. Bunyan's in Florence, Alabama is hands down, THE BEST! I saw a cable tv show in NYC that was discussing BBQ in the deep south. They claimed Big Bob's Gibson's BBQ in Decatur, Alabama was the best. I was in the area and tried it yesterday. It was good, but didn't compare to Bunyan's.... More
