These are definitively the best burgers I have tasted in El Salvador. The recipes have an original taste and are way better than what you would find in any fast food place (burgers and fries); additionally, the quality to price relation is ideal for what you get. The restaurant itself is a bit small (with few parking spaces), but the... More

Hello Marlon, thank you for taking the time to write this awesome review, it's our pleasure to serve you, on the other hand I don't understand why you wrote that we only offer soft drinks as a beverage choice, in actuality we sell a great variety of national and imported beers and wine, some of the brands we carry are:-Blue...

Ok, here is the deal, this burgers are awesome but here some advice. Avoid the 2 patties burger (is just to messy to eat) you will get the quality and flavor out of one patty. If you are a low carb eater, try the primal burger, this is your thing... Lettuce wrap with sweet potatoes fries or even better change... More

I was absolutely amazed with the food this place offers, my favorite of all times is the Roasted Pork Sandwich, I have to get this at least once a Month :D, as a tip if you are not into carbs you can order this with a side of salad instead. The burgers are also amazing and they are always very... More

If you want an authentic mega burger (not the restaurant chain type) this is it! Small, rustic place! But very good service. The Sweet potatoe fries are the best (Yuca fries too). Try the Rustico Burger, you will not regret it! Simply the best Burger here in El Salvador

If you have spent much time in Central America then you know a good burger(by American standards) isn't easy to come by. I had found a good one in Southern Nicaragua but this just topped the list for my favorite burger in Central America. They use quality beef and can cook it to your liking, good variety for choice of... More

Not only does Rustico Bistro offer a great hamburger, they have a pulled pork sandwich that would make any Carolinian happy. Get there early. The place fills up fast, especially on weekends.

I ate here while visiting my daughter. I had the pulled pork, which was a little on the sweet side for my taste, but everybody else in the group had hamburgers, which they raved about. This restaurant/bistro has a nice, relaxed atmosphere, but they take their food seriously here, and the chef knows how to put his vision on the... More
