Others have attempted to dominate the Portland BBQ market over the years - but they don't last. Maybe it’s the freshness and availability of Busters ham, beef, sausage and turkey; or the good prices, or the 3 easy Portland locations; maybe it’s the warm personalities of hosts & cashiers. I especially like the cheesy worn-out western comics on the old pine clad walls. Perhaps, largely it’s because I love the taste of all their salad-bar style offerings of BBQ sauces and condiments, which are savory and unlimited. Oh, and I love to mix a little of the ranch-dressing in the mild sauce (my 3rd son taught me that one). Buster’s is what I miss when I’m in Asia eating fish and rice. Ohhh, yea!! It’s a place where food memories are made!
