Bunyan’s Bar-B-Q was not on my #25List but the wonderful thing about the way I travel is I always leave room for adventure. I make sure there is time in my schedule to get lost and take wrong turns that turn right. Bunyan’s was unexpected and delicious.
I arrived shortly after they opened and was greeted by friendly smiles. I placed an order for a rib plate plus green beans to go and my hot food arrived quickly. There is indoor dining and outdoor dining available.
I’d gotten lost trying to find the Wilson Dam Waterfall and my morning was quickly disappearing. So I hopped into my car planning to eat my food as I traveled South to visit the Jesse Owens Museum.
The ribs were tender with a slight char and almost fell off the bones. They were easy to eat while driving and I was smart enough to cover myself in paper towels in case I dropped one.
The green beans were flavorful, baked beans sweet with a hint of spice, and the potato salad was creamy with a bite of pickle. The slaw was a recommendation from Pam Trowbridge and it was too much heat for my sensitive stomach. But I know several people who would love it!
Bunyan’s is located at 901 West College Street, Florence, AL 35630. They’re open Monday through Saturday at 10:00 and their closing hours and menu can be found here. I’ve already added them to my #MustVisit list when I return to North Alabama.
