“Tasty tasty tasty ”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

Buster's is a tiny little diner, and was consistently packed with diners. Service was fantastic and friendly, the price was perfect, and the food was fabulous.
We indulged in the chili cheese fries and cheese dog with the lot - delicious. Well cooked, fresh, with multiple flavours that were each identifiable and enjoyable.
Definitely recommend you try it.

“Delicious cheese steak with no fuss”
Reviewed 10 March 2014

This place served up one of the nicest Philly Cheese Steaks I've ever had. Although this shop doesn't look like the most exciting from the street, pthe food is amazing. The service is fast and no nonsense, but it's not an upmarket restaurant and doesn't claim to be.

“Great late night spot”
Reviewed 5 February 2014

This place is open until 3am which is great for a late night out. Chilli Cheese Fries are a must. Cash only!

“Decent cheesesteak”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

I'm guessing this place kills with the late-night crowd. I got a regular cheesesteak with american cheese. It was mildly crowded when I went but I still got my food rather fast. The best part, and this is what made me decide to try their cheesesteak: they had a bottle of A-1 on the counter. I'm sold. Nothing goes better on a cheesesteak than A-1. Nothing. The cheesesteak itself was good. Much like what you would make at home with Steak-umms.

“Excellent cheesesteak, poor service”
Reviewed 29 July 2013 via mobile

The guys have been a little too "cold" with us. Apart from this, the cheesesteak was EXCELLENT and the price was right.
