As a linebacker for the 49ers in Super Bowl XVI, he made one of the most famous defensive tackles ever witnessed. On a critical 3rd-and-goal from the one yard line, Anderson passed to Charles Alexander in the right flat, but Bunz came up fast, grabbed the receiver around the waist, and hurled him backward before he could break the plane of the goal line. Had Bunz tackled him low, Alexander's momentum certainly would have carried him into the end zone. He was a member of the San Francisco 49ersSuper Bowl XVI and Super Bowl XIX winning teams.
Not long after the owners closed Bunz and Company, Dan was approached by a group of veteran restauranteurs about a joint ventures. On January 19, 2013 they opened 2H - 2nd Half at Bunz & Company in the same location as the original Bunz and Company.
