We stopped by for lunch and shared a corned beef sandwich with potato salad. It's located in a vintage building with the main door opening into a hallway and small dining areas divided among rooms - kind of a strange layout. The food was quite good and service was pleasant. Nothing to rave about but it seems good enough to... More

I very much wanted to love this place. I found it using the Trip Advisor app on our travels home from Woodward Reservoir, CA. My boyfriend and I both wanted biscuits and gravy with coffee. Lo and behold, they had a B&G breakfast on their menu, complete with bacon and eggs! The coffee was good. The service was solid. The... More

The food is amazing!! And we'll worth the price! Don't go during peak hours though it's very busy and you could wait, and it's a very small restaurant so it's tight eating quarters when it's busy!

Always great food, creative specials and fantastic service. Love this place! Had ghost pepper rabbit sausage Benedict. Over the top. Open kitchen lets you watch the chef as he turns out one great plate after another. Will come every time I'm in town.

I read the reviews from other visitors, saw great pics of good food and knew I should check this place out. Unfortunately, they didn't deliver. Service was decent but the food was not even mediocre. I ordered a very basic breakfast of bacon, eggs, herb potatoes, and English muffins. My eggs were undercooked and runny, even though I asked for... More

Buster's is at the East end of a 6 block Main Street in Cottage Grove, Oregon - exit 174 on Highway 5. When it first opened I thought it was trying too hard. Service and the description of items was pretentious and the food didn't measure up. Now, several years later I'm delighted to say that Buster's survived and has... More

We always make Buster's at least once for breakfast when we are in Cottage Grove. I highly recommend it for breakfast. Servings are generous, very delicious, and varied. They have the normal options but also eggs benedict, fabulous pancakes, huge biscuits. Everything is so good. Service is great. Atmosphere is cozy. We love it.

We stopped for lunch on a warm September day. The restaurant is in an old building with no air conditioning. It was very stuffy. Service was good. Beef was excellent. Overpriced., but large enough portions that you could split a meal. My husband ordered the Philly. It had way too much salt and pepper added. Other people were ordering late... More

We decided to try Buster's after reading the raving reviews on Tripadvisor. The food overall was pretty good, my husband had biscuits and gravy and I had a pancake with Bacon/Eggs. My husbands sausage was still raw in some areas, but he ate around the raw areas. The food is all homemade which is a huge plus. Our server was... More

Consistently good food, and plenty of it. Weekends always packed unfortunately and about 30 min wait time every time I go, but a good solid American style breakfast offering everything you would ever want
