Reviewed April 1, 2013

Excellent BBQ and service but keep in mind that they close at 9pm on weekend nights. Nice patio under the oak trees.

“Nothing to write home about”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

Nice people, good service, but very average BBQ. Too many choices around here to make it a favorite. Small portions too.

“Buster's was awesome for rehearsal dinner.”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

Buster's did an outstanding job on our rehearsal dinner. The outdoor Beer Garden was the perfect atmosphere. The BBQ was delicious, I loved the turkey and the beans and potatoe salad were the perfect side. The cobbler with BlueBell ice cream was outstanding and Mary and her crew took great care of us. If you love BBQ, try Buster's.

“In the upper tier of Austin BBQ restaurants.”
Reviewed March 5, 2012

Ausin has a lot of BBQ restaurants - some are good, some are awful. I'm happy to report that Buster's is in the first group. I've gotten their "family meal" carryout a couple of times, usually with lean brisket and pulled pork - half a pound of each - creamy cole slaw, and fries (you have a choice of over a dozen sides). The meal also includes sauce, bread, onions, pickles, and jalapenos; it's alway been good, feeds 3, maybe 4 people, and only runs about $20 + tax.

Ambience in the restaurant itself is VERY casual - you order at the counter, and find yourself a seat. They'll call you when your order is ready. Nothing fancy, it's just a place to get good Texas BBQ. (There's a nice deck alongside for outdoor dining in good weather.) Sometimes they have "specials" which are listed on a chalk board as you walk in.

“Try the turkey!”
Reviewed December 9, 2011

This is an all around great bbq place. The turkey, however, is one of my favorite. You won't find turkey like this anywhere else.
