Surprisingly good food. Place to watch Cal games.

2 things keep us coming back here:

Surprisingly good bar food.

The burgers and sandwiches come with a large helping of fries (with curly being my favorite option). I’ve also tried the ahi tuna burger, club sandwich, quesadilla, and hot wings. All above average. The food definitely makes it an enjoyable place to watch sports. My only gripe is that they don’t sell pitchers.

They show Cal football games and it’s on the intersection of Santa Monica and Berkeley. Go Bears!

It’s nice to know there’s somewhere to go where there are fellow Cal alumni to watch the game.

Parking is a mix of 2 hour street parking, meter and valet. I’ve never had trouble finding space on the street. Also, they have some games like pool tables, foosball, and some arcade games.

Turkey Club Sandwich

This is one hearty sandwich. I love club sandwiches and this was no exception.

Senor Busbys Quesadilla

Cheesy and full of chicken. Huge sides of sour cream and guac too.

Hot Wings

Fried and covered with hot sauce. Tasty if you like your wings with a kick.

I went here a couple days ago. I have went by this place many times the last time they were very busy it looked like a huge Party going on. I noticed that whoever painted your business did a very cheap job. The building is not finished…

I love this place...

Busby's in Santa Monica is awesome! Everyone who works there is super nice and helpful (well, nearly everyone). The food is greasy (most of it) but very good. There are tons of TVs all around the place and on the weekends you can dance…

Avoid This Place

Very scuzzy place. Bad service and strange ambience. If coming from abroad or going there alone, I would think twice.
