Be aware that this place doesn't take credit cards, so bring your cash. Buster's has managed to keep its reputation for good old burgers and beer, served unfancifully but graciously. A throwback atmosphere that you can enjoy with friends.

This is one of the most over hyped restaurants of all time. I get the whole Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives thing, but this is just a pit, If a pit you ask, why not 1 star? Because, the burgers, in and of themselves, are juicy and cooked to perfection. The problems? There was sooo much mayonaise on those burgers you... More

A little off the beaten path you'll find this great little bar and grill. The cooks are great and the food fresh. This place is a well kept secret and lots of locals meet for food and beer. Check them out. They will surprise you. Oh, it's not going to win any prizes for decor..but, for what it does..it's perfect.

Tradition for years in Murfreesboro but under the current ownership it has gone to the next level. If you want a great burger in Murfreesboro this is the place all the locals come to. Limited Menu, but that's a good thing because if they don't believe they have mastered it they don't serve it. Tip: if you like a little... More

This little dive doesn't look like much. Looks are deceiving in Buster's case. We eat here about once a week, and the wings are by far the best I've ever had. First of all they are huge! They are smoked all day and then flash fried right before they hit your plate. The flavor from the smoke is perfect, and... More

I would not doubt that Buster was with Uriah Stone when Black Fox Swamp was discovered... Buster's has been around since "Heck" was a pup. Talk about providence, I can remember when Buster's was just a Beer Joint two notches above a Cut and Shoot...! They made burgers and fries as a by product for the suds soaking and absorption;...

This place has been around since the early 1970's and not much has changed except the owners. The new owners Peter and Kathy Moret took over in late 2013 and really enhanced the place. Peter does a lot of smoked meats and ribs which are awesome but his smoked then fried chicken wings are TO DIE FOR!!!

Great laid back atmosphere, the food was tremendous! We had the Double Cheese Mushroom burger, it was fantastic and huge, freshly prepared and we could have gotten away with eating a single patty and been fine lol.

We all enjoyed the delicious hamburgers, fries, onion rings. The soft drinks are sold by the can, so no free refills. Lots of local color.

The first time I had Buster's, I had ordered take out, and the food is fairly good. Hand patted burgers that are super juicy, the fries are just your average store bought crinkle fries, though. Today, I had another Buster Burger, this time with Bacon, which was delicious, and I tried the Buster Dog, which was super good! The chili... More
