A self serve take away, sit inside or outside BBQ spot. There is always a line but it moves. The pork rib dinner and pulled pork sandwich were great. Everyone left with a smile on thier face.

We saved Busters for the last day of our trip, hoping to have a nice BBQ picnic outside before leaving wine country. We went on a Monday around 5 PM. The staff at the counter were very unfriendly and seemed very annoyed that we asked questions. They also spent a lot of time talking to each other and ignoring customers!... More

Have never stopped in to Buster's, but group of us ordered lunch from them - everything was delicious. The spicy BBQ is just that, but delicious. I had the 1/2 chicken and sides - it was a lot of food, but yummy! The sandwiches ordered were enjoyed but there is a lot of bread. Looking forward to trying something new... More

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.
