I always look forward to eating at Bunn's. I always get the cornbread sandwich..barbeque and slaw on old fashioned cornbread. Delicious! The people that work there are very friendly. This is not a fancy place but the food is good!

No lengthy review needed here. If you like eastern NC BBQ, Bunn's is a must! I make the side trip up to Windsor every year on my way to and from the Outer Banks each year. In fact, the trip to Bunn's has become part of the summer vacation tradition. While the BBQ is some of the best I've had... More

We stopped in for lunch on a Saturday while motoring down Rt 17. We searched with the GPS for something other than a franchise for lunch, and now Bunn's is saved as a 'favorite' in the Garmin memory. There were lots of cars 'n trucks in the lot, some more pulling in as we arrived which we took as a... More

Love everything about Bunn's! The food is great, the staff is very polite and the atmosphere is one of just a down home little place to eat. They have the best barbeque in NC in my opinion and you have got to love the corner piece of cornbread.

My parents just love this restaurant. They went frequently & when they walked in the servers already knew what they would order. It's not a fancy place by any means & doesn't look that great from the outside (old service station I believe) but if you want down home bar--B-Q, stop in here. You may want to call to be... More

Bunns has the best BBQ around! There is a old country/rustic feel about the building. It has been in Windsor for as long as I can remember. I don't get to eat here much because they're not open for very long and they're only open around lunch. I normally get their BBQ sandwiches with slaw. So good!

More and more when I go to Eastern NC I am finding the BBQ changing...a little more tomato...a little less vinegary. Burn' STILL does it right!! My only regret is that they don't ship.

Traveling throughout northeastern North Carolina, I try to route through historic Windsor, where Bunns serves Carolina pulled pork barbecue that rivals any of the more "famous" places. On some days, barbecue chicken is available. Pork barbecue, cole slaw and sheet pan cornbread are the standards. Open only for lunch. No beer or wine.

My wife and I were heading east and decided to stop in Windsor. There is not a lot of choice but we made the best one. We ate at Bunn's and it was great. Just a wonderful BBQ joint. Great bar-b-q and slaw. The cornbread is also very good. Nice service and good value. We will definitely stop again.

Thank RabyFamily
