This place is awesome!!!! The best beef brisket in US. I have had Texas style BBQ in Texas, Tennessee and bunch other places but I have yet to have anything like this place. The brisket is so delicately done that is just enough juicy but yet not too fatty; not too dry but just perfect. The spicy sausage and chicken... More

My family has been eating at Busters for years. This is good traditional Texas style barbeque. As advertised, this is a vegetarians worst nightmare.

We had a pulled pork sandwich and a combo with 2 meats. Brisket and baby back ribs and 2 sides. At 8pm, it is passable. The pulled pork was the best since it will keep in the steam tables. The brisket was OK but a bit dry and there did not seem to have much flavor. Even with the nice... More

Great little place for ribs and brisket. You can select your choice of sides to go along with your entree. The potato salad and baked beans are very good. Good place to take the kids.

I have been here hundreds of times and I always come back. I think there side orders all taste yummy and homemade. It is smoked meat so I think some people consider it dry but I enjoy it. There sauces are unique and tasty. They have never had table service that I have known except in the saloon. I always... More

We arrived after the lunch crush - we were told they had table service, but after sitting for a bit, there didn't seem to be any service coming. Customers can serve themselves - take tray, stand in line, order food cafeteria style, so that's what we wound-up doing instead. As I said, we arrived after the lunch crush and the... More

The brisket was very lean, tender and a generous portion. They offer a variety of sides, and regular and alcoholic beverages. Comfortable, friendly atmosphere, with reasonable prices. We'll be back!

Don't go out of your way to get here, but if you're nearby this will be a fine choice, the sauces are good, the meats decent (although inconsistent; on one visit they'll be fall of the bone tender, and on the next grisly), and the sides standardly satisfying. The atmosphere is dark wood, cafeteria style (my husband hates it more... More

I used to live in the Portland Area and I always enjoyed Busters BBQ. Until I moved away I did not realize how good they really are. I have eaten BBQ all over Texas and the South and I still prefer Busters style and quality.

Thank dg48

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.
