Had some good BBQ at Busters for lunch in Calistoga. BBQ ribs were great but don't get the hot sauce unless you have a high pain tolerance. Wow it was hot. Great patio out back as well

Being raised in Texas and doing some of my own smoking, I can tell you with certainty this place falls short. You go to a window and a surly order-taker slops it all onto your plate, not sure how long the food has been in...More

I enjoyed stopping at busters. It was a roadside stop with some standard bbq dishes. I had the tri-tip and chicken combo. The tri-tip was cooked nicely although I didn't notice a good smoke flavor to it. The chicken had more of the smokiness though....More

Very casual place with a limited menu. BBQ tri-tip and ribs were great, sauce not too spicy, although they do offer a spicy sauce. Very generous portions, we had to take home several dishes. The beans were great.

This Spot is fabulous great fresh bbq, decent prices eg half beef rib for 16$, half chicken dinner for 9$. Not a place to expect a gourmet dish but a place you enjoy a honest food.
