“Excellent smoked chicken”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2013 via mobile

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 folks are super nice and know how to BBQ!

“Best Bar-B-Que around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2013

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!

“True BBQ place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2012 via mobile

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 is better.
