Great tasting pizza, but....

Rusty's pizza is very tasty, but disappointed with the overall cost of a lunch for four. A small salad to their salad bar, one trip only, was $4 and the bowl was so small you could barely fit much of anything in it! Realized after we order two pizzas, two small salads, and four drinks, that they... read more

We used to go here for pizza, however this branch has been closed for a while now. There are other branches around the area though.

Above average pizza; crowded and stuffy hot restaurant. We ended up taking our pizza to go as it was insufferable on this warm night with no A/C to speak of in the restaurant. O.K. beer selection.

Atmosphere here is not so good very local place the pizza is good but not the best around... If you just need to itch a crave for pizza you can do it here.

Rusty's Pizza Parlor was chosen by our group for an after adventure meet and greet. They gave us a large upstairs room that was perfect for our group. The pizza was good. They offer crisp and regular crust and all the usual toppings. The salads were fresh and the lettuce crisp. The price was right too.

One of the few pizza delivery places in SB. However, the pizza is not very good. I'd have to be desperate or drunk to order from there. Grab an Uber and to to VIa Vai, Olio Pizzeria or Trattoria Mollie if you want good pizza.

Santa Barbara does not have a lot of great pizza options, but this is clearly the best of the bunch. Small, local chain with excellent quality & pricing.

Ok. I am a Santa Barbara/Goleta local and have been eating Rusty's Pizzas for last 30 years. Undoubtedly this is one of the best pizzas in town. I never paid attention to how their pizza is made until now. So, if you order all veggie pizza, the preparer makes pizza with the same hands which have touced sausage, ham etc.... More

I liked that the pizza was made with fresh ingredients and was ready in a timely fashion. Very reasonable for the amount of food and quality.
