My second visit didn't disappoint. Good solid food at a fair price. The jovial Lancastrian is still funny despite his use of Peter Kay's entire act.

Visited the Island in the October break with my Husband. By far the best takeaway bus I’ve ever been to. Brilliant service and super tasty burger and chips! Brilliant location and even benches to sit on outside. We will definitely pop back in on our...next visit to this wonderful Island!!More

Regretted eating here - worst burger I think Ive ever eaten and wasn’t that cheap either - was a sort of minced very pale meat - very unappetising.

We received the most delicious breakfast butty after coming off the early morning ferry. A lovely cheery man greet us to take our order and managed all of our request, even the unusual. Thank you very much you have set us up for the day...😃😃More

My amazing Partner and I are doing a Western Isles trip. We were headed to Leverburgh and wanted to eat prior to getting the ferry. Traveling in October we knew lot's of places would be closed. We were amazed to find that the Butty bus...came to the rescue. Really wide ranging menu, prices reflect genuine bargains! Our first fish supper in the Western Isles was the best fish supper on Earth. Thanks for being open off peak tourist time. It takes time to make good food.More

The best egg roll on planet Harris. Great menu and friendly service, could not ask for more when you need to fill up your belly. Who needs petrol when you can fuel up on an egg roll!

We ran out of food and fortunately the Butty Bus was open when we arrived off the ferry! Chef does a great job in a limited space, panini was lovely. Latte however, not so great.

Not going to be the best food you'll ever taste but it is excellent to see someone catering to travellers needs. Couldn't make out opening hours but seems to cater in time for ferries and boat trips. We needed it when coming back at 7pm...(and that time there is not much available !) and there he was serving hot drinks and food. Wonderful before the long drive north to Stornoway. Can't praise him enough.More

Excellent breakfast butties! All the best ingredients for your Scottish bap - Stornoway Black pudding, haggis, lorne sausages and potato cakes. Even Pip my Airedale terrier tucked in!
