Family owned and operated and darn proud to bring Oregon authentic Texas-style barbecue. Since 1982 we've been serving up meats so tender and tasty they'll bring out the Texan in you! And no wonder. Our 12 hour cooking process is done over a low smoke-filled wood fire because it's the only way to ensure you the "real deal". People just love our tasty and tender beef brisket, ribs, pork loin, pulled pork, ham, links, turkey breast, chicken, sides and fixins.

We visited at a slow time, 230pm. Food was ok but nothing special. Lots of sauces to try but most were very close to same. Felt like a pizza place that served bbq.

Buster's is my husband's favorite restaurant and I can see why. They mesquite smoke their own BBQ. The food is offered in various combinations depending on how hungry you are. You choose from Brisket (my favorite), chicken, links or ribs then choose from a variety of sides all served up with the most delicious Texas toast from great big slab... More

I've been going to Buster's for over 20 years. It is consistently excellent - service, food, cleanliness. Their salad dressings are THE best - ranch and blue cheese. I heard they are made homemade daily, but I can't confirm.

Bring your partners and mosey on down...an all western theme throughout the restaurant. Huge amount of seating for families, parties, etc. Super luncheon specials and dinner plates, rather platters. Super bargain easily makes 2 meals from one.The coleslaw, beans, mac and cheese and all the meats from brisket to turkey are amazing. Great lunch sandwiches and beverages selection plus salad...

Love their ribs! Always friendly staff! If you live close by and want to take it home, order by sides and meats and it will be much cheaper. We spoil our dogs with the beef bones.

This is where we go when we want a great sit down meal without the hastles of servers, and waiting for your food to show up. Buster's is a cafeteria style barbecue, cooked Texas style over a low smoke filled fire, which offers great food quickly. It is decorated in Texas and western. We really like their brisket, but they... More

My husband and I have been coming here for 14 years and have never been disappointed. We buy a $50 gift card for $45 so before we even eat we are $5 ahead. The food is a great value. We ate there this evening and I can't wait to get hungry again and eat the rest of my brisket dinner.

My brisket sandwich was huge with lots of great tasting, perfectly cooked brisket. The garlic toasted bun was a great touch. Also loved the atmosphere and our great waitress!
