Love the Pulled Pork Sandwich from this place. I will definitely be going back here for more from their menu.

This was my 2nd visit in 2 years, so it's obvious how much the first visit impressed me; that was a pulled pork sandwich which had almost no pork on it. Decided to give it one more try around 3pm on a weekday afternoon, simply because I was in the area and starving. Ordered a brisket sandwich, and the very... More

Food is pretty good here if your into smoked BBQ if your not this is not the place for you. I recommend ordering off their lunch menu. The Ribs & Wings Combo with fries and coleslaw is awesome. Don't for get to pick up some sauces.

The meat is good and they have some really nice sauces there could be more variety in sides. The restaurant is small more designed for eat out and in an industrial park. More suited for a good meal than a fancy dinner or a date. All in all good food.

I have been a fan of this place since seeing them on "Dragon's Den" TV show. I recently ate at the downtown Oshawa location and ordered the pulled pork pouting. I was very disappointed,the pulled pork had no sauce on it only a white colored gravy (turkey gravy?), Very few cheese curds and the fries were just Ok. My other... More

It is a long drive from Toronto to Whitby just to have Buster Rhino's smoked BBQ Baby back ribs. But the drive is well worth it. We usually have delicious house made fries with the ribs. We also order a pound of naked chicken wings with house made cabbage slaw. Be sure to put the habenero hot sauce on the... More

So my family ordered the can't decide combo, which is $42. What a big mistake! First the site says that delivery is free for orders over $40, they charged us for delivery, which we did not realize until we got our 1 bag of food and realized our extra order was not there. They told us it would be 30... More

I was in Oshawa this past weekend for a Finland/Russia game and found this place while walking around downtown. From the outside, it looks like a place you'd find Open Mic Nights. On the inside...much of the same. It has a very basic look, like a cross between a banquet hall and someone's basement, but it has a strange charm... More
