Great Burger in San Salvador

Great, nondescript little place. The burgers are huge and the freshly baked buns are great. Be warned, though, the burgers are quite greasy, which I personally liked, but I know some more uptight folks may not. All-in-all, well worth a visit if you're a burger lover.

While the ambiance is simple, the burgers will surprise you. We had a hard time deciding and decided to order each and try them all. I think I had the california one and it was yummy. Great meat, buns are made there. Their fries are amazing.

We look forward to having visitors so that we can take them to Rustico. The most creative and delicious burgers ever, on local bakery rolls, along with crispy yucca fries. No one goes home hungry. The Micheladas are downright awesome too!

Place will not win you over by their appearance as it is quite simple that includes use some plastic chairs. Place is more suited for lunch with unpretentious friends or family. Rustico sells some sandwiches but specializes in burgers with flavors such as a 3 cheese burguer an a Guava BBQ burger. The burgers are 1/2 lb and include fries... More

I have to say this is The Best place in town for having a burger. The bistro is cozy and the ambient is relaxed, heavily tasteful food (ask for the burger served with tamarindo sauce!) and more than generous portions. The staff is really really nice and assistive.

This is an excellent place where to eat burguers, the meat is so tasty and the bread is amazing which offers you a very good experience. The place is very casual and the attention is nice, I love this place when I craving for a real burguer this is the one to go.

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
