Description: Great restaurant that 'evolved' from a 'food truck' adventure by it's two owners....husband and wife. Healthy menu....produce/meat etc. from local farmers etc. Amazing tastes....unpretentious place but a 'find' in poor old stuffy Fresno. Please look them up on their website www.dustybuns.com. Fresno is sooo in need of a restaurant such as this. Hours are limited as they are still running their truck which is not an easy thing to do when dealing with the City of Fresno that still hasn't caught up to the rest of the world when it comes to encouraging the food truck culture.

“Fresh, local, organize”
Reviewed May 27, 2013 via mobile

Best food in Fresno for under $100! Typical meal costs $12-15. Everything is very good. They make their own bread every day. Sandwich, soups, and salads are all interesting and flavorful. The atmosphere is great, too.

“Original and flavorful sandwiches and soup”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

They use fresh local ingredients and their food is rarely boring. Dusty Buns has a limited menu of sandwiches, soup, salad and a few desserts. They also have a taco truck which can be found around town. Not open for breakfast.

“Hidden gem”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

This is a local, family-owned restaurant that features local, organic, and seasonal ingredients. They have their Dusty Buns Bistro Bus at different locations around town for lunch, then dinner at their bistro in Fresno's Tower District. The food is amazing, to say the least. They have certain items that are mainstays on the menu, although the exact ingredients vary depending on the season. Then they have other very creative dishes on the menu as daily specials. You must get Le Grilled Cheese, it will change your life. It is a great value given the quailty and taste of the food. I titled this review hidden gem, however this place has really grown and gained popularity in the last year or so. Highly recommend!
