My husband loves this meat focused restaurant. I keep remembering two visits with a couple of flies driving me crazy. Yes the food is very good, but the ambience needs some attention.

Very good BBQ. This was easily the best meal I had during my 5 days in Portland. They offer a very good version of Northern-Texas BBQ. Very laid back atmosphere.

Always excellent food. Also always extremely spendy. Good sized portions, lots to choose from and fast friendly service. We have been here many times!

Went here because family in area like to go and play the Triva. Food was ok, not the best Bar-B-Q, but not the worst either. Service was good. Value was fine. Again, just a local place.

I ride my bike by this restaurant and it always smells so good. Went to check it out and I wasn't to impressed. Food was okay, I wasn't a fan of pushing a tray down the food line. We probably won't go back.

I like BBQ and thought we would try Busters. I would call the place 'old school', a comfortable place, nothing real fancy. Had some pulled pork, which I liked quite well, I always have to have a bit more sauce on my pulled pork... The menu had plenty of choices to choose from. I think I will visit again.

It's pretty good. Not the best, but not bad at all. The meat can be kind of dry at times, and the sauce it pretty okay.

As and avid cook, Busters is great if you don't want to deal with prepping and cooking the duration it takes for good BBQ...what makes it awesome is their meat is always done right and is great for last minute eat in or take out. Could serve more "Green" cooked veggies on the side. But no doubt, they know how... More

Family owned and operated and darn proud to bring Oregon authentic Texas-style barbecue. Since 1982 we've been serving up meats so tender and tasty they'll bring out the Texan in you! And no wonder. Our 12 hour cooking process is done over a low smoke-filled wood fire because it's the only way to ensure you the "real deal". People just love our tasty and tender beef brisket, ribs, pork loin, pulled pork, ham, links, turkey breast, chicken, sides and fixins.
