We had the steak sandwich and bbq pork sandwich. They were excellent! I would highly recommend either one. Fries and cole slaw were great also. (Pic is the steak sandwich and fries.) Oh, and the Ace Space Cider was tasty!

My nephew and I were in Minneapolis for business at the same time and met for dinner. He suggested Busters b/c he had seen in on Diners, Dives and Drive Ins. First we ordered the homemade potato chip appetizer. I really like homemade chips and these were the best I have ever eaten served with homemade French onion dip. We... More

Hubby and I stopped in for a quick lunch while outdoing errands. The place was clean and pretty quiet at 11:20 on a Saturday. It was full by the time we were done. My husband had a Sake Bloody Mary and I had a great Mimosa to go with our steak sandwiches. Both the drinks and the sandwiches were awesome.... More

The seating area is a little tight, but the food was delicious. The portions were big enough that the wife and I split the pork sandwich, the one complaint about it is could use a little more sauce.

This is a great neighborhood spot with amazing food and an even more amazing beer list. I had the beer braised beef sandwich with sweet potato fries and a Castle Danger 17-7 Ale. You will not be disappointed if you stop here. I would have gave it a 5 star rating but the service was slow - not the end... More

Nice little bar with the food made from scratch and lots of microbrews. If you like this type of place you will love it. They were trying a new menu and I thought it might still need some tweaking . I had the margarita flatbread and thought it needed something else the flavor was not quite there. I think it... More

After visiting the Minnesota State Fair my fiance and I stopped at Busters for dinner on our way back home. We saw it on Diners, Drive ins, and Dives and decided to try it. The place is not very big and the seating is a little tight, but the food was delicious! I had the Buster Burger and my Fiance... More

I saw this place on diners drive-ins and dives and it looked great on there, so this was a must visit on my trip to the twin cities. It was a great decision. My wife and I shared the steak sandwich and braised beef sandwich... they were so freaking good! The place has a big beer menu and our service... More

I'm not a beer drinker, but I like the feel of Buster's; friendly neighborhood bar and grill that serves good food. I've had the tacos here and a salad and enjoyed both. Charlie was my server and he seemed knowledgeable about everything on the menu. And if he doesn't know, he'll do his best to find out what you would... More

My wife and I tried this on a lark and had a great lunch. The food was awesome and i sampled several beers. The bartender spent some time with us and answered many questions and shared some good suggestions. We want to bring our family members here and share our experience.
