I was in the area and was told they have great ribs. Fridays special $18 for a full rack of ribs. Bought them and took them home. The ribs were cooked to perfection with just the right amount of smoke flavour. I ate them dry (without sauce ) I wanted to taste the meat not the sauce. I would buy... More

The ribs here are great, the sauces service and food is amazing. The pulled pork sandwich and fries both taste really good but the ribs are some of thes best I've had, I would definitely go back and hoe they open up closer to my home.

I was craving ribs, and read a few reviews from varying sites about BR. I decided to take the wife (she loves BBQ), and have some great ribs and pulled pork. The expression, "hole in the wall" or "dive" really does describe BR. It was sort of easy to find, but in a very odd spot in an industrial unit.... More

If we have eaten at a place more than once... then we like it! And we have eaten at Buster's a couple of times so you know it is good. Their location in Whitby is tucked behind a McDonald's and is just a place for pick-up orders. Their new location in downtown Oshawa has lots of tables and is a... More

The pulled pork and beef brisket sandwiches are awesome. I love the hot "Holly Habenero" sauce. Backed beans as a side - yumm!

I love southern BBQ but this place has so many negatives I was just glad to leave. The food was nowhere near as good as other BBQ places I'd visited and half of mine went in the garbage bin on the way out. The service is almost zero, mainly because of their system and the place is as cold, uncomfortable... More

my colleagues and I tried it a few times and its always been a dreadful experience. Slow service ( i mean we only have half hour for lunch) bad attitude from all the servers, overpriced food, small portions, everything tastes like pork and most of all, the quality of food is below average. I was in there on tuesday and... More

I've been to Buster Rhino's many times and really enjoy their pulled pork, which is my favourite. Many places soak their pulled pork in some nondescript BBQ sauce and you can't even taste the smokiness in the pork. However, Buster Rhino's does is just perfect. I've also tried their ribs and really enjoy them as well! Recently, I finally had... More

As a southerner living in Canada, I pine for the tastes of home. To my surprise Buster Rhino's transported me back to Texas with their mouthwatering BBQ. YUM. I love that you can take it home and heat it up quickly. Stash in the freezer for quick meals, and mostly enjoyed that they had authentic BBQ, the way it is... More
