Great pork loin, pretty good tri tip. Had the dinner plate vs the sandwich, which for another dollar you get 2 sides instead of 1. The side of coleslaw was good and the baked beans were good with a unusual spice. It was too busy to ask what is was, not sure if they would of told me. There is... More

Reviews are all over the board for Buster's and I decided to try it today. Has been a long time since I first had a meal there. I ordered pork ribs, baked beans, and cold slaw to go. Lots better than in the past. So I'll be returning!

So disappointing. Despite the cook grilling outside, giving the impression of genuine great BBQ, this place is a hot mess. The food was bland, and served on paper plates and plastic cups. There is nothing to recommend this place.

My sister in law and I went here for dinner on one of our nights - the food was awful. We both wanted ribs but they were pure fat - yuck!

OK, get ready to enjoy the best BBQ around. Tri-tip (and if you don't know what that is, you need to stop here), pulled pork, sausages, and excellent BBQ sauces with a range of beans for sides. The hot sauce which Buster claims to be Louisianan probably is, not hot enough to my taste, but delicious. My sons sample the... More

Perfect change from a day of wine tasting! Pulled pork sandwich with hot sauce (and it sure was hot to me!) with a side of potato salad was the best lunch! No frills, just really good food!

Where else do younger four adults and a child for less than $50? Really tasty food - I recommend the tri-tip by the way. Friendly and once through the queue fast. Go for it!!!

If you are looking for a cheap restaurant with good food, this is it. This is the cheapest place to eat in Napa Valley. You will not find fast food but this is better. You order your food at the window and within minutes you have your barbecue and sides. After that, you just pick a table and start eating.... More

If your looking for a simple BBQ they are just fine. We split the combo platter with pork and chicken. We were split on witch we liked more. But both were good over all.
