We went there on a Sunday. After three o'clock a band starts to sing jazz and blues. All of us enjoyed the generous portions of chicken and pork bbq. Personally I enjoyed the overall atmosphere and the coziness of the place. The band was awesome!

When we pulled up and saw that people were waiting in a long line, we weren't sure whether or not to stay. I'm glad to say we did. We all got sandwiches - tri-tip, pulled pork, and chicken. Fantastic! It's not a fancy place. This is shorts and tees kind of place. I would go back.

The tri- tip sandwich was a great choice that was given by a local in the parking lot . I would agree it was a great choice. The meat was very tender and the roll that it is served with was topped with garlic butter have a great finishing touch. The baked beans were a great side dish selection as... More

Stopped in to eat at Buster's because I was driving by with the window down and smelled some good good. Relatively competitive prices considering the location. Not super impressed with our meals...I had the tri-tip sandwich with potato salad and my girlfriend had the pulled pork dinner with macaroni salad and baked beans. The garlic bread they give you is... More

I absolutely love going to Busters. They always have freshly cooked meat that smells and tastes amazing. The prices are fairly decent. Very causal place to eat with indoor and outdoor sitting. I would highly recommend.

This is a roadside Bar-B-Que with an indoor dining room as well as outside tables. My husband loves Oysters so he decided to try them. He said they were good. I got the pulled pork sandwich it was good except for the soaked bottom bread.

We are so glad we stopped there for lunch. So worth it! When you're going from tasting to tasting, you really need a good meal in between. We saw Busters when we were driving by and decided to stop when we were heading the opposite direction. They get the food to you fast, it is GOOD quality Bbq. What I... More

My wife and I arrived in Calistoga and the first thing we smelled was the enticing aroma of BBQ. We ordered the tri tip and fell in love! The price is great and the food was better. They even offer hot sauce for the more adventurous. If you love BBQ and you're in the area you should definitely check out... More
