Good stuff

Hadn't been in over a year. Still as good as ever. Best bean and cheese wet in town. Chili Verdi is great. Hot sauce not just ordinary salsa is worth taking some home.

been going here for years. Rusten House has great food at a reasonable price. The new location is good.......liked the old one better but I think its probably being demolished ( really old building ).

These are wonderful tacos, all white meat and they come with guacamole on them. Also I believe the owner is a former US Marine. How can you go wrong ??

The smell of the fajitas filled the filled restaurant. It was a Friday evening and there were big family parties 20+ enjoying conversation among three generations and the best Mexican food in the Antelope Valley. With more than half of the restaurant's tables filled with the happy families and it was fun to watch the serving crew turn it on!... More

Got lost by using Tripadvisor App Map which incorrectly mapped their newer 15th St address onto 20th St, so watch for that, but the good comfy Mexican food and margaritas and friendly service were worth it!

Best Mexican food anywhere is Lancaster, CA. Been going in there for over 41 years and NOT once have I had a bad experience. Love the old building, but much more room in new location.
