I was in Oshawa this past weekend for a Finland/Russia game and found this place while walking around downtown. From the outside, it looks like a place you'd find Open Mic Nights. On the inside...much of the same. It has a very basic look, like a cross between a banquet hall and someone's basement, but it has a strange charm... More

I went here for lunch and ordered the pulled chicken sandwich. Really disappointed when I looked inside my bun and found a piece of chicken with a squirt of bbq sauce on it. I thought pulled anything should be shredded and soaked in sauce. I paid more than a Big Mac sandwhich for this but wished I had the Big... More

If you love pulled pork, then coming here is not optional. I'm serious. It is the best pulled pork I have ever had! The fries here are also phenomenal!!! Just so you know, plan to get take-out, because there is no where to sit in this place. Hopefully one day soon they look into getting a bigger place, and expanding... More

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
